Veracity, SoleraTec Announce Partnership
Veracity, provider in connectivity and transmission solutions for IP video, has formalized a technology partnership with video surveillance asset management (VSAM) solution provider SoleraTec.
Both SoleraTec’sPheonix RSM (‘Record, Store, and Manage’) and Veracity’s COLDSTORE are specifically designed for energy saving and cost-efficient online, near-line and offline video surveillance asset management.
COLDSTORE is a unique hardware platform designed for the video surveillance market. Phoenix RSM is a complete video surveillance storage management software platform. Together, these two products deliver a compelling solution to those organizations that need longer-term retention of their video surveillance feeds.
COLDSTORE is a network attached storage array (NAS) that can store up to 45 Terabytes of surveillance data across 15 disk drives that overcomes the reliability, data accessibility and power usage problems associated with traditional RAID-5 storage solutions.
Using patented LAID and SFS technologies, data is written sequentially to each disk drive in turn, moving the drive read/write head from the outside to the centre of the disk in a movement similar to a record player, thereby minimizing wear and vibration.
Video is recorded onto COLDSTORE’s array using a unique overlapping mirrored-pair disk writing pattern, assuring resilience, yet minimizing numbers of disks required. Each disk, once written, can be physically removed for offline storage or evidential transport. Stored video can be accessed from any computer via Veracity’s DISKPLAY cradle system.
Phoenix RSM provides advanced video surveillance data management, including live video capture and comprehensive video lifecycle management.
Focused on the Record, Store, and Manage aspects of a forensics-based video surveillance system, Phoenix RSM delivers fast search and playback through multi-tiered storage. It delivers replication and migration of video assets to progressively less-expensive storage mediums, while fully managing the storage location of all video files, enabling rapid search and retrieval of relevant video scenes, regardless of how long ago they were captured.
