IT Infrastructure for Mission-Critical
Surveillance and Security
Software-Based Intelligence Designed for Video Surveillance
The Quantum VS-HCI Series is purpose-built for supporting video management systems (VMS), video storage and video analytics plus enabling the consolidation of other related applications such as access control onto an integrated server and storage platform called hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI).
Our VS-HCI Series uses innovative software-based intelligence and automation to simplify management, provide the highest levels of resilience and efficiency, and ensure scaling and maintenance are easy. With solutions optimized for edge and centralized environments as well as security operations centers, and support for any VMS and video analytics, the VS-HCI Series can cover all your video capture, storage and visualization needs.
Resilience and High Availability
The patented system-level resilience and data protection technology ensures you can continue to store, access, and analyze video even in the event of disks or an appliance failure. Storage will remain online, applications automatically failover and restart, and recorded video will remain protected and accessible, all without the need for redundant software, licensing or hardware.
The software automates many management tasks such as resource allocation, health monitoring, self-healing and upgrade orchestration, meaning no specialized skills are needed to manage this enterprise-class infrastructure.
Deploy the VS-HCI Series with only the server and storage resources you currently need, minimizing your upfront costs. As camera counts grow, new camera technologies are deployed, or retention times increase, add just the storage, compute, GPU and bandwidth needed by simply adding additional appliances with no system downtime.
Purpose-built for Video
Optimized to handle the unique requirements of modern video surveillance workloads, the VS-HCI Series eliminates frame drops to ensure video loss and image degradation never occur. Every VS-HCI appliance's storage and performance resources are aggregated and available to every camera, so you can be confident that cameras will get the sustained performance they require, even in the event of hardware failure.
