Unified Surveillance Platform

A resilient, flexible, and secure infrastructure for physical security applications using your choice of hardware.

Eliminate Downtime, Lower Costs, and Reduce Complexity

Video surveillance infrastructure is crucial to ensuring the safety and security of people, places, and business operations. Compared to traditional NVRs, the Unified Surveillance Platform (USP) software combines the compute and storage resources of multiple servers into one resilient, high-performance, cost-effective, and flexible software-defined system to record and store your video and other physical security data. Critical video data is no longer stranded on any single NVR so you won’t lose access to recorded video if hardware fails.

When deployed in tandem with Quantum’s end-to-end solutions for video surveillance including long-term archiving and ransomware protection, organizations can rest assured that their video surveillance and other physical security data are always accessible and the people and places they protect are safe and secure.


A Flexible Unified Server and Storage Platform

USP software creates a unified server, storage, and networking system designed to handle the unique characteristics of video workloads. Tier data to ActiveScale, Scalar Tape or public cloud for long-term video retention and archiving.

Featured Benefits

Flexibility to Use Your Server of Choice

Quantum Unified Surveillance Platform brings a completely hardware-agnostic approach to your video surveillance infrastructure. Build and scale your infrastructure with any new or existing standard x86 servers. Subscription-based software offers financial flexibility and operational agility.

Advanced Digital Security

Your video and other data is protected from unauthorized access, spread of malware attacks, and other threats with built-in four-layer security that brings datacenter grade security technology to your physical security infrastructure.

Always-On, Always Available Video

Be confident that video is always being captured and accessible with advanced system-wide resiliency, which withstand complete server failures and multiple disk drive failures without loss of data or system shutdown.

Preserve Video Integrity

Eliminate the risk of frame loss and degraded video and ensure optimum video recording, playback, and viewing with software that is designed to sustain high write performance under high-channel count scenarios and prioritize recent and frequently accessed VMS data for instant playback of critical video.

Software Feature Highlights

Hardware Agnostic Supports any industry standard X86 server that meets minimum CPU and RAM specifications (e.g., Dell, HP, Intel, Lenovo, Fujitsu, Huawei, etc.)
Solid State Caching and Tiering Initial writing of video on high performance flash storage for no frame loss.
Flexible Storage Pools Create storage pools for different media types to match application needs.
Intelligent Cache Management Prioritizes VMS activities for fast execution and recent recorded video kept in cache for instant access.
System Resilience and Data Protection  
Multiple Failure Domains Withstand failures across racks, servers, or disks for availability of video in the event of failures.
Application High Availability Applications (VMS and others) automatically moved to another server in the event of a server failure within the cluster.
Non-disruptive, granular scaling Expand storage, compute together, or independently with no system downtime.
Tightly Integrated, Robust Virtualization Platform Hypervisor, software-defined storage and networking, automated failover, built-in intuitive management, no separate licensing.
Management and Monitoring  
Health and Resource Utilization Information on hardware status, application resource utilization, storage capacity utilization, performance, and more.
