Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Video Surveillance
Lower risk and costs with software and appliances optimized for mission-critical video surveillance and physical security.
Infrastructure Designed for Video Surveillance and Security
Quantum hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions provide a purpose-built, innovative approach to creating an ‘always-on’ unified server and storage infrastructure for your Video Management Systems (VMS) and other security applications that easily scales when and how you need it to. It gives you the flexibility, simplicity, and security required for mission-critical video surveillance and physical security environments. Plus, you benefit from lower infrastructure related costs through more efficient hardware utilization which results in less hardware required to support your number of cameras and applications.
We offer two approaches to HCI solutions, both based on Quantum innovative software-based intelligence. One provides the flexibility of using your choice of server hardware and then purchasing Quantum software with a built-in virtualization platform that converges the compute, storage, and networking resources in those servers into a unified system. The other provides the convenience of purchasing pre-configured appliances from Quantum with Quantum software and VMware ESXi hypervisor installed on the server hardware. Both solutions support all the leading VMS, video analytics, and other security applications, so you can be confident in the operation of your complete video surveillance and security infrastructure.
Resilience and Security
Patented system-level resilience and data protection technology ensures that you can continue to store, access, and analyze video even in the event of multiple disks or an appliance failure. Multiple levels of datacenter grade security ensure your video is protected from unauthorized access, spread of malware, and other cybersecurity threats.
Flexibility and Convenience
Purchase only the server and storage resources you currently need, minimizing upfront costs and scale to what you need, when you need it afterwards. Choose between purchasing appliances consisting of hardware and software or purchase just software as-a-subscription and use the server hardware of your choice, either new or existing.
Optimized to handle the unique requirements of modern video surveillance workloads, Quantum’s software platform eliminates the risk of frame loss and degraded video and ensures optimum video recording, playback, and viewing.
Host multiple applications, including multiple VMS recorders, access control, video analytics, etc. on the same system reducing the amount of upfront and on-going hardware related costs. Automation of repetitive or complex tasks and one-click operations means no specialized skills are needed to manage this enterprise-class infrastructure.
Quantum offers two hyperconverged infrastructure solutions optimized for video surveillance and security.
The VS-HCI Series is our line of turnkey 1U and 2U appliances with the Quantum Acuity software platform and VMware hypervisor pre-loaded on server configurations designed for specific storage capacity and camera throughput. Quantum supports the Acuity software platform and the hardware as a complete solution.Explore VS-HCI
Unified Surveillance Platform
The Unified Surveillance Platform is our hardware agnostic hyperconverged software platform that runs on your server of choice, either new or existing servers you re-purpose. Purchased and licensed with the flexibility and convenience of software subscription with support and updates included.Explore Unified Surveillance Platform
Start Small and Grow What You Need, As You Need It
- Add one node at a time to grow storage, compute, or storage and compute resources combined.
- A system starts as small as three 1U or 2U nodes and scales up to 16 nodes in a cluster with the ability to manage multiple clusters under a single management domain.
- Using VS-HCI Series 384TB nodes, 8PB of video can be stored in a single 42U rack.
