Turnkey Appliances Purpose-Built for Video Surveillance and Security

In addition to being available as software only, the Quantum Unified Surveillance Platform is also available in pre-configured HCI appliances, known as the VS-HCI Series. VS-HCI Series appliances are available with the option of either Quantum USP or Acuity* hyperconverged infrastructure software installed and configured on certified server hardware to provide the right balance of performance, storage density, and cost for video surveillance environments.

Part of Quantum’s comprehensive portfolio of solutions for recording, storing, protecting, and archiving video and other physical security data, the VS-HCI Series is designed for customers and systems integrators that value a complete solution, both video surveillance hardware and software from a single source.

*Acuity software is formerly Pivot3 Acuity Hyperconverged Infrastructure and is available for installed Pivot3 customers expanding their deployments or customers who prefer the VMware hypervisor.
