SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) today announced expansions to its storage solutions family and technology partner ecosystem for video surveillance and security. With the new Xcellis™ Application Director E, customers in low camera-count environments can now run video management systems (VMS) or analytic applications with directly attached storage. In addition, Arecont Vision, AxxonSoft and Digifort have joined the Quantum Advantage Partner™ program, enabling them to test, qualify and integrate their VMS technology with Quantum storage offerings for enhanced customer benefits. Quantum will showcase these and other developments at Intersec 2017 in Dubai, Jan. 22-24, booth SA I-23.
Bringing Surveillance and Security Data Storage to Smaller Environments
Xcellis Application Director E, a new model in the Xcellis Application Director product line, is a cost-effective video server and storage appliance for smaller-scale camera environments. This new entry-level offering:
- is ideal for implementations ranging from 10 to 25 cameras;
- fulfills storage requirements from 18TB to 64TB (raw);
- enables users to manage further data growth through integration into a larger Quantum QXS™ Series disk-based environment or Xcellis-based tiered architecture.
With the addition of the Xcellis Application Director E, Quantum's product portfolio for video surveillance infrastructures can now scale from as few as 10 cameras to tens of thousands. Xcellis Application Director solutions also enable VMS applications to connect directly to QXS Series disk storage or as clients in an Xcellis environment powered by Quantum's industry-leading StorNext® data management. As a result, users can access data without adding to network traffic for a more efficient video surveillance infrastructure.
A Growing Ecosystem of Surveillance Partners
Quantum's rapidly expanding video surveillance partner ecosystem now consists of more than 40 companies. The latest additions include:
- Arecont Vision is the leading manufacturer of high-performance megapixel IP cameras and makes its products in the U.S. The company's MegaVideo® and SurroundVideo® massively parallel image processing architectures are now in their fifth generation and represent a drastic departure from traditional analog and network camera designs.
- AxxonSoft is a leading global developer of open VMS and PSIM (physical security information management) platforms. With headquarters in Moscow and more than
