|ABP Tech couples SnapServer XSD and XSR NAS storage products with Mobotix surveillance cameras as a complete solution
Sphere 3D Corp., offering a comprehensive portfolio of hybrid Cloud data storage, desktop virtualisation and containerisation offerings, and parent company of Overland Storage and Tandberg Data, recently announced that ABP Tech recommends SnapServer® as its Network Attached Storage (NAS) of choice. The IP technology solutions distributor and its system integrators have installed hundreds of SnapServers throughout the U.S. and prefer to include SnapServer as a bundle when deploying MOBOTIX’s high resolution video cameras.
Multi megapixel camera data
Today’s multi megapixel cameras generate vast amounts of data. Facilities with multiple video cameras need an effective solution to access and backup recorded content. As a result of superior reliability and features, ABP Tech couples SnapServer XSD and XSR NAS storage products with the Mobotix surveillance cameras as a complete solution.
“We focus on a carefully selected IP product portfolio,” said Jim Molencupp, ABP Tech’s product manager for IP surveillance. “The products we choose are well targeted so that our resellers can offer premium solutions to their clients and rely on us for pre- and post-sales technical support. We specify SnapServers because of their quality and reliability – they just work! A secondary reason we see value in the SnapServer portfolio is the Snap Enterprise Data Replicator (Snap EDR™) function that allows scheduled replication, which some customers request.”
The SnapServer enterprise NAS family is integrated with the MOBOTIX video management software and MxRemotePreview software. As such, customers are able to set up and manage MOBOTIX IP cameras with any local or remote SnapServer device that is connected to their video surveillance network. This type of tight integration allows for rapid response to security or surveillance issues regardless of location.
“Our long-standing technology partnership with MOBOTIX has enabled us to offer a tightly integrated storage and archive solution that delivers proven and consistent performance and reliability in a flexible and easy-to-use platform,” explains Tina Brown, VP of corporate programs and communications at Sphere 3D. “Our SnapServer NAS, along with our external RDX™ removable drive solution for archive storage, allows IP video data to be stored and then seamlessly exported without any loss of data integrity. Owning the IP stack for our storage offerings enables us to create best-of-breed solutions so partners like ABP Tech can deploy quickly and assuredly.”
