Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Video Surveillance

Lower risk and costs with software and appliances optimized for mission-critical video surveillance and physical security.

Replace Racks of Inefficient NVRs with a Modern Unified Compute and Storage Platform

The growing number of cameras and the increasing resolution of video data are putting pressure on the traditional video recording infrastructure, which is typically comprised of racks of dedicated network video recording (NVR) servers. This infrastructure approach is complex to manage at scale, and is more susceptible to downtime, data loss, and poor performance.

Quantum offers a solution with hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) for mission-critical video surveillance recording and analytics. Hyperconverged infrastructure combines compute and storage resources into a single platform that is resilient, scalable, and easy to manage. You can replace racks of inefficient dedicated servers with a single hyperconverged platform for video recording, analytics, and other physical security applications.

Replace racks of inefficient dedicated servers with a single hyper-converged platform

Quantum HCI features patented video data reduction techniques to record thousands of video streams simultaneously at maximum uptime with fewer servers required, reducing risk of hardware failure and data center footprint by up to 80%. This results in a much simpler video surveillance storage infrastructure with a smaller data center footprint, reduced operational costs, and a reduced risk of data loss.

Featured Benefits

Record up to 10,000+ Cameras on a Single System

Consolidate racks of NVRs and other servers onto a unified compute and storage platform built for video surveillance to reduce data center space and costs.

Achieve 99.9999% Uptime

Designed to provide ultra-high performance and resilience to ensure data is available and eliminate frame loss.

Reduce Data Center Footprint up to 80%

Patented video data reduction techniques mean you can record more cameras with less servers required, reducing data center footprint, power, and cooling.

Works with Any Video Management System (VMS)

Run your existing VMS management and recording servers, plus additional applications for video analytics, access control, and more.

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.
