BCDVideo, the pioneer in video data infrastructure, announces that it has partnered with Wasabi, the hot cloud storage company for video surveillance storage in the cloud. In an industry moving rapidly toward a hybrid-cloud model, this partnership expands the ability for both manufacturers to offer their customers a complete package: BCDVideo’s purpose-built, on-premises storage options and Wasabi’s competitive hot cloud storage solutions. Together, these two companies deliver a hybrid cloud solution that takes advantage of existing infrastructure, as well as next-generation cloud storage technology, to secure high volumes of video efficiently and affordably. Surveillance security market “We are thrilled about the opportunities this partnership will open up,” said Jeff Burgess, CEO at BCD International. “Wasabi’s cloud technology is already optimised for the video surveillance cloud storage space, which makes it a perfect extension for our purpose-built on-premises devices — working together is a no-brainer.” Building on more than two decades of experience manufacturing video appliances in the surveillance security market, BCD is committed to offering customers the best user experience and value. Marrying Wasabi hot cloud storage with BCDVideo’s Harmonize Bridge enables BCD and Video Storage Solutions (VSS) appliances to interact with Wasabi cloud storage and allows BCD to deliver on that commitment. With a cloud storage option that is one-fifth the price and faster than the competition, with no additional egress fees or API request charges, Wasabi is a game-changing, cloud technology provider. Together, these companies are moving the industry forward. Video surveillance storage Wasabi has a goal to make cloud storage a simple commodity and utility" “We see video surveillance storage requirements growing quickly and outpacing the capacities of on-premises storage alone. By adding affordable, high-performance cloud storage to the equation with BCD’s on-premises storage, you get the best of both worlds,” said David Friend, CEO of Wasabi. “Wasabi has a goal to make cloud storage a simple commodity and utility, just like electricity, so together with BCD, we make video surveillance storage simple and affordable in high volumes.” Because Wasabi’s cloud offering integrates with video surveillance vendors, customers can operate surveillance systems using anywhere from one to 1,000 cameras with varying storage needs, all with plenty of room to scale. Wasabi offers existing BCD customers flexibility as well, allowing users to use as much or as little cloud storage as works best for their system. Surveillance storage systems Using cloud storage as part of surveillance solutions allows customers to take advantage of bottomless storage while reducing the close and build-time required for hardware overhauls. Not to mention, with 11x9s of data durability (99.999999999% reliability), Wasabi hot cloud storage is a powerful addition to the BCD suite of appliances. As video is mission-critical, it is crucial to build surveillance storage systems that can archive older data at a lower cost, free up on-premises storage, and reduce the need for new CapEx spending in the meantime. Bringing BCDVideo and Wasabi together achieves that goal and paves an important path forward.
Videonetics, the AI & DL powered Unified Video Computing Platform™ development company, proudly announces technology integration with Wasabi, the hot cloud storage company. Through this integration, Videonetics and Wasabi will provide low-cost, high-performing, and resilient storage for surveillance files in a highly secured cloud storage solution. With no vendor lock-in or hidden service fees, Videonetics customers will be able to easily deploy a cloud storage option that allows them to scale-up or scale-down capacity based on their current needs. Cloud diversity options The technology integration brings unique features and benefits: Coupling Videonetics agnostic platform with cloud diversity options, without adding cost: Recently unveiled globally, VideoneticsIntelligent VMS 3.0 has a multi-layered approach to storage and supports multi-layer architecture where video files can be stored at multiple levels depending on the criticality and the required aging of recordings. By integrating with Wasabi, Intelligent VMS 3.0 can instantly transfer video files to the cloud directly within the application. To optimise surveillance storage, Intelligent VMS 3.0 provides options for compression, framerate, and resolution when storing footage allowing for the reduction of files to a more manageable size for backup. For example, users can save footage in high resolutions for the first 30 days and the second copy in lower quality in the cloud. These options allow for greater flexibility in storage and video file management while respecting compliance and retention standards. Manage the critical incidents videos with ease: Incident or critical surveillance videos are usually accessed by Videonetics Intelligent VMS 3.0, video analytics and other applications, for forensic purposes. If video files have not been accessed in the last 90 days, or it is not tagged as ‘critical’ due to its association with some incidents, the file cools rapidly and Intelligent VMS will instantly move these files to Wasabi’s cloud. Maintain video data in highly secured environment: Combining multi-factor authentication of Videonetics Intelligent VMS 3.0 and Wasabi’s ‘truly secured’ cloud storage solution i.e., certified SOC-2 and ISO 27001 compliance along with 11x9’s (99.999999999%) of data durability, safeguards videos from any deletion or modification as well as reduces the risk of cyber-attacks. Cost-efficient cloud storage solution “We believe in building ecosystem relationships and focus on collaboration, and our technology partnership with Wasabi will address our customers critical challenges with video storage,” expressed Avinash Trivedi, VP - Business Development of Videonetics Technology Pvt. Ltd. “Wasabi is delighted to be collaborating with Videonetics to deliver a reliable, flexible and cost-efficient cloud storage solution for end-to-end management of surveillance videos. With this integration, our partners can design highly efficient and highly secure solutions for both public and private sectors globally,” said David Friend, CEO and Co-Founder of Wasabi.
