Quantum VS2124

A purpose-built system for video recording and management.

Security, Loss Prevention, and Smarter Cities Drive the Need for New Architectures

Surveillance and security are more vital than ever, for airports and other critical infrastructure, stadiums, malls, retail and restaurants, and facilities and buildings across the world. And surveillance infrastructure requirements are becoming more expensive and complex, with more cameras, higher camera resolution, and increased retention times driven by analytics and AI.


Introducing the Quantum VS2124 Surveillance Appliance

Quantum’s VS2124 video surveillance appliance is a purpose-built system for video recording and management. The VS2124 incorporates enterprise-class reliability and redundancy—all while remaining simple to configure, operate, and maintain. It can be installed and ready to use in less than 1 hour.

The VS2124 supports over 400* video surveillance cameras and provides 240 TB of space (usable) to store video surveillance images, all in 2U of rack space.

Higher Performance, Lower Capital Expense

The VS-Series is purpose built for video recording and management, which means it can record more cameras and run your VMS infrastructure all on the same hardware, reducing capital expense. The VS2124 can support over 400* video surveillance cameras and provides 240 TB of space (usable) to store video surveillance images, all in 2U of Rack Space.

*VS2124 has been verified to support over 400 2MP cameras at 30 fps with server-based motion detection


Easy to Operate and Maintain to Reduce Operational Expense

VS-Series servers are pre-installed with certified VMS applications and can be set up and configured in under an hour.


Reliability and Redundancy to Reduce Risk

The VS2124 incorporates multiple components for reliability and redundancy. The VS2124 can lose up to 4 data drives and continue to function, without the loss of any video. All drives are hot swappable. It includes redundant, hot-swappable fans and power supplies. Redundant, hot swappable, solid-state drives are used for the VS-Series software as well as the operating system and VMS application execution.
