Seattle-Tacoma Airport Chooses Pivot3 Technology For Security Upgrade
Pivot3 recently announced that the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport selected Pivot3 Serverless Computing for a project that transitioned its highly critical surveillance environment from analog to digital while preserving the existing investment in analog cameras. The airport was able to save 40 percent in power and cooling by deploying virtual NVRs on the Pivot3 Serverless Computing platform in place of physical servers.
“The Port’s vision is to be an environmental leader; we look for new technologies that help us meet this goal while maintaining the highest protection levels for our passengers and employees,” said Chris Evans, Port of Seattle system administrator for Access Controls Systems.
“We are pleased to see the rapid adoption of Serverless Computing deployments in the government transportation market,” said Lee Caswell, founder and chief marketing officer at Pivot3. “The reliability requirements of this market are well-suited to the failover and recovery features in Serverless Computing, and the green benefits kick in immediately.”
The implementation involves 121 Terabytes of Pivot3 storage, including virtual servers for more than 300 cameras. Pivot3 Serverless Computing is the first and only clustered storage solution that simultaneously runs NVR applications on IP SAN hardware. Virtual NVRs eliminate the need for standalone physical servers and dramatically reduce the cost, power, space and failover benefits of surveillance installations.
