Quantum introduces video surveillance and industrial IoT product line

New VS-Series efficiently records and stores surveillance footage; runs an entire security infrastructure on a single cloud-like platform.

Quantum has introduced the VS-Series, an efficient, flexible storage platform designed for surveillance and industrial IoT applications. The VS-Series is available in a broad range of server choices, suitable for deployments with fewer than ten cameras, up to the largest environments with thousands of cameras. Using the VS-Series security professionals can efficiently record and store surveillance footage and run an entire security infrastructure on a single platform.

Smarter, safer buildings and cities drive the need for a new approach to data

Surveillance and security operations continue to get more complex, with more cameras, higher-resolution imagery, and increasing data retention requirements. As buildings become smarter, everything from access control systems to lighting and HVAC systems are now connected – part of the “Internet of Things.” There is an opportunity to simplify operations by consolidating and converging many applications onto a single platform.

A new software platform designed for video surveillance

Quantum’s VS-Series architecture is based on the Quantum Cloud Storage Platform (CSP), a new software-defined storage platform specifically designed for storing machine and sensor-generated data. Like storage technologies used in the cloud, the Quantum CSP is software-defined, can be deployed on bare metal, as a virtual machine, or as part of a hyperconverged infrastructure. Unlike other software-defined storage technologies, the Quantum CSP was designed specifically for video and other forms of high-resolution content – engineered for extremely low latency, maximising the streaming performance of large files to storage.

The Quantum Cloud Storage Platform enables high-speed video recording with optimal camera density and can host and run certified VMS management applications, recording servers, and other building control servers on a single platform.

Flexible software-defined architecture for a range of deployments

The VS-Series product line is being offered in a variety of deployment options; including software-only, mini-tower, 1U, 2U, and 4U hyperconverged servers.

Key VS-Series attributes:

  • Efficiency: Quantum’s VS-Series supports high camera density and software architecture that enables users to run their entire security infrastructure on a single hyperconverged platform.
  • Flexibility: The VS-Series is a software-defined platform which offers the broadest range of deployment options. Many appliances can scale out for more cameras or scale up for increased retention.
  • Easy to deploy, operate and maintain: The VS-Series comes pre-installed with certified VMS applications, and can be installed and configured in minutes. It is backed by the world-class service and support of Quantum and our integrator partners
  • Resilience: The VS-Series software offers a fault-tolerant design to minimise hardware and software issues, designed to virtually eliminate downtime
