BCD International releases Harmonize Conductor VMware plug-in, exclusively available on the REVOLV portfolio of hybrid hyper converged infrastructure (hHCI) products.

REVOLV is an innovative hHCI solution that reduces or even eliminates inefficiencies often presented by infrastructure in the video surveillance space: large hardware footprint, high power and cooling costs, multiple OS, and software systems, and limited resources dedicated to each server. BCD’s REVOLV application offers an IT-ready solution for security integrators who need to scale to large volumes and want the ability to do so without reliance on infrastructure expertise.

Virtual machine management

The Harmonize Conductor for VMware is a full Genetec plug-in that displays the entire vSphere environment from within Security Centre. Built on the Genetec SDK platform, the BCD Harmonize Conductor leverages many advantages found with Security Centre such as creating entities, event-to-actions, and role fail-over. The BCD-developed application enhances the user experience by introducing Virtual Machine (VM) management while staying true to the Genetec platform.

Conductor utilises the VMware APIs to integrate VMware services into Security Centre

Developed on a .NET 4.8 Technology Stack and vCentre API, version 6.7, Conductor utilises the VMware APIs to integrate VMware services into Security Centre. The plug-in creates virtual machines from templates, manages virtual machine properties, and displays virtual machine telemetry. Administrators can define custom entities within the Config tool as well as health thresholds as deemed necessary.

Real-time analytics

Conductor utilises custom events as communication between client and server applications and hooks for operators to use within SC, or through other management options such as Genetec Mission Control. The benefits to the system administrator include a ‘single pane of glass’ system management.

Administrators will have access to real-time vSphere analytics to monitor their system from anywhere, real-time vSphere events to keep the system synced and perform actions when needed, and the ability to create ad hoc virtual machines. The Harmonize Conductor VMware plug-in comes standard on all REVOLV systems, which are available to the security integrator directly through BCD. All systems include on-site installation through BCD’s Professional Services program.
