The Milestone Solution Certification gives verification of the components as interoperable and optimised for performance with XProtect VMS

BCDVideo’s enterprise-grade VRP solution has been designed for maximum performance on a Milestone XProtect platform

Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), has now tested and reported performance component certification of BCDVideo’s Nova Server and Storage Series.

IT infrastructure, server, storage and client platforms are integral parts of networked video management deployments, so any miscalculations of the server or storage requirements impact the success of a system's operation, causing system outages and downtime. To address this, Milestone worked closely with BCDVideo to ensure that their systems can be optimised for the Milestone XProtect® software portfolio, helping implementations to be specified, built and delivered as optimal systems for each customer's technical environment.

The Milestone Solution Certification gives verification of the components as interoperable and optimised for performance with XProtect VMS. The certification process delivers documentation of a solution's proven maturity and quality as assurance of system integrity and differentiation from non-certified components.

“Integrators can build solutions with confidence when referencing the tested configuration data from the Milestone certification process. The documented proof describes how these video solutions operate within the parameters of the maximum performance tests," says Christian Bohn, VP Strategic Alliances at Milestone Systems. "We have been doing integration certifications for several years, and these additions continue to build trust in Milestone solutions for both partners and customers."

Each certification project has three phases, starting with two scenarios of a benchmark test and a maximum performance test. Statistics from the Milestone XProtect Recording Servers are gathered to judge the performance as a platform for video recording. The analysed data and findings are presented in a complete report with details on the configuration of the test system and a summary published on the Milestone website.

"The BCDVideo storage solution
to date is among the best VRP/NRP
that Milestone has tested with
the given parameter"

These tests identify that the system integrations meet minimum expected performance thresholds based on known benchmarks for best practice. The certification also measures the maximum number of cameras, at a given frame rate, resolution and codec that can be supported by the server and storage system. A summary report from the Solution Certification includes optimal configuration for a surveillance system using the Milestone XProtect VMS with BCDVideo. This contains the solution architecture, the performance results, use-case information, and detailed system configurations for the components of the combined solution.

“The BCDVideo storage solution to date is among the best VRP/NRP that Milestone has tested with the given parameters. With the video profile used for the tests, the system should easily support 150 cameras (storage limited). The system outperformed the given video simulator and testing had to stop with the given parameters: the maximum number of cameras achieved on the system was set at 150 1MP cameras at 10 frames per second and 60% video compression. It is noteworthy that this was achieved with only 32% of the system resource utilisation on the BCDVideo server,” says Jeff Burgess, President/CEO of BCDVideo.

Both system integrators and end customers of this best-practice, Milestone-certified system can rest assured that their video will record and archive successfully. BCDVideo’s enterprise-grade VRP solution has been designed for maximum performance on a Milestone XProtect platform with long-term value and performance in mind.
