BCDVideo, the provider of enterprise-quality, purpose-built IP video storage solutions and Scale Computing, a pioneer in edge computing and hyperconverged solutions, announced an exclusive technology and engineering partnership enabling BCDVideo to deliver turnkey hyperconverged solutions based on Scale Computing’s HC3 software to BCDVideo’s global network of security integrators and OEM customers.    

BCDVideo has a long history of adapting and developing technology for video surveillance. There is a clear gap in the market for a simple, deployable hyperconverged video solution. BCDVideo and Scale spent the last year co-developing and certifying a platform, which fits seamlessly into the BCDVideo product philosophy of lessening the Total Cost of Ownership, and meets the security integrators needs for performance, scalability and simplicity, all in a single platform.

Combining computing, storage and networking

It allows the integrator to deliver video surveillance recording, access control, visitor management into one hyper-converged clusterTom Larson, BCDVideo Vice President states, “It’s been exciting to have spent the past year working with one of the pioneers in hyperconverged software as we jointly engineered this new platform. This solution will bring high availability and scalability to a market that desperately needs it, as we combine compute, storage and networking into one software-driven appliance. This, in turn, allows the integrator to deliver video surveillance recording, access control, visitor management, and other applications into one hyper-converged cluster.

The fact that it is easy to deploy and even easier to maintain should open the hyperconverged market up to a larger number of security integrator customers who may have been hesitant to go in this technical direction in the past.

Saves training costs

Deploying new Virtual Machines can be achieved in minutes and everything is managed through a very easy-to-use web interfaceShipping in the fourth quarter, 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, any system downtime. The 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.

We are very excited about this strategic partnership,” said Dan Pierce, VP Strategic Sales, Scale Computing. “Customers globally will benefit from BCDVideo’s HCI-VS series as it addresses the full spectrum of needs in the IP Video Surveillance market while eliminating complexity and reducing total cost of ownership. As with other edge environments, ease of deployment and administration at each individual location by administrative generalists is key for this market.
