BCDVideo, the provider of enterprise-quality, purpose-built IP video storage solutions, and Scale Computing, a pioneer in edge computing and hyperconverged solutions, announced the certification of BCDVideo’s new Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Video Surveillance (HCI-VS). Developed over the last year and underpinned by Scale’s HC3 software, BCD218-HCI Series, built on a Dell OEM technology foundation, offers modularity and ease-of-use without sacrificing performance and quality.
Initial tests of the solution, configured with Genetec’s Security Center software, ran at throughput of 1800Mbps with ten video archiver virtual machines (VMs). BCDVideo expects final testing in the 2200-2400Mbps range.
“We acknowledge that recording video on virtual machines has been a challenge in this market for years. We decided to tackle this issue and finally through engineering and testing, b”uilt a viable solution,” said Tom Larson, Chief Technical Officer, BCDVideo. “We successfully adapted the technology for video.”
The HCI-VS system installs at the project site within an hour and is a fully integrated cluster-wide resourceEliminating system downtime
BCDVideo’s new Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Video Surveillance (HCI-VS) Series greatly simplifies the deployment, management, and maintenance of its infrastructure, saving the security integrator training costs, and most importantly, eliminating system downtime. The HCI-VS system installs at the project site within an hour and is a fully integrated cluster-wide resource.
Deploying new Virtual Machines (VMs) can be achieved in minutes and everything is managed through a very easy-to-use web interface. The native high availability built into this all-in-one solution utilises automation and self-healing to eliminate the complexities around deployment and ongoing management.
HC3 self-healing machine intelligence
“It goes far beyond building an easy-to-deploy hyperconverged solution on the Dell OEM platform, although flexibility within that technology is an innovator’s dream,” reflected Jeff Burgess, Chief Executive Officer of BCDVideo. “It’s more about making a significant difference in a market that sincerely needs one. Customers need high-availability solutions that don’t cost an arm and a leg and perform as promised. BCDVideo has delivered on both counts.”

“The HC3 self-healing machine intelligence automatically identifies, mitigates, and corrects infrastructure problems in real-time, eliminating the need for infrastructure management componentry. This innovation makes HC3 simple for security integrators to manage and administer,” commented Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder, Scale Computing.
“The HCI-VS system, powered by Scale Computing, combines the HC3 self-healing automation with BCDVideo’s leading technology, giving customers a solution built to meet industry wide surveillance requirements while also simplifying the management and maintenance of their infrastructure.”
HCI-VS solution at ISC West
The HCI-VS is currently available to ship. The company will showcase the solution at ISC West April 10th and 11th. ISC West is the largest converged security trade show in the United States, covering video surveillance, access control, smart home, public security, drones, robotics, and more. Conference attendees showcase the newest security products and technologies, network with colleagues and security professionals, and gain valuable industry training.
