SoleraTec LLC, provider of innovative video lifecycle management and storage products, has certified PHOENIX RSM video surveillance management software on the HP family of StoreEver LTO data tape storage libraries. These models include the HP StoreEver ESL G3 library, the HP StoreEver MSL G3 Family of libraries, and the HP StoreEver MSL6480 tape library each with LTO-5 and LTO-6 drives. Video retention and archive management Working with the HP StoreEver LTO library certification team, SoleraTec has been able to install, configure, and thoroughly test the PHOENIX RSM software on the previously mentioned HP StoreEver LTO libraries with excellent results. The HP server, disk, and LTO tape storage solution is a compelling hardware platform for the video surveillance market capable of significant operational expenses savings, energy savings, and affordable storage of online, near-line, and offline video surveillance feeds. HP –powered by the Phoenix RSM surveillance management software– can now offer a new level of video retention and archive management. Together, the Phoenix RSM and HP StoreEver product family delivers a robust solution to organisations that need greater storage, overarching management, and longer retention of their video surveillance. The product combination enhances the capability to quickly search and playback video feeds regardless of when the video was recorded or where it is stored. The complete video retention solution offers users an unparalleled ability to capture and store vast amounts of video surveillance footage for search, playback, and export. Increased storage capabilities Add in the increased adaptation of body worn cameras and the amount of video feeds and the associated retention periods of those cameras, and the storage required, become extremely large, extremely fast. Along with the industry’s widest support for over 325 IP-cameras manufacturers, the Phoenix RSM and HP storage products can record the motion detection levels from supported cameras and deliver far more relevant search and play back capabilities. "Having the right tool for the right job that scales as your business grows is critical in today's competitive climate. HP’s family of StoreEver LTO storage libraries provide the right mix of scalability and affordability," stated Mark Armstrong, CEO of SoleraTec. "With the ability to simply install additional HP StoreEver LTO libraries to extend the retention and archiving periods, the ease of use and overall management of this HP-oriented solution is clearly first-class."
