EMC Introduces New VNX-VSS100 and Isilon Enhancements for Surveillance Storage

Protecting people, critical infrastructure and information from deliberate or accidental threats is serious business—and it's a business that's growing exponentially. Fueled by physical security investments, organizations require a shift to open, scalable "edge-to-core" architecture that reliably interoperates in both a distributed environment—with many "edge" (close to cameras) locations—and a central "core" location that natively supports next-generation analytics workflows. EMC Corporation today is announcing new video surveillance solutions, new test and validation capabilities within its labs, and expanded partnerships to offer an open, flexible and cost-effective platform for video content storage and analysis.

Industry research released today by IHS Technology forecasts the sales of video surveillance equipment to reach $26B in 2018, growing 2X faster than the overall IT market. New requirements for video surveillance have driven customers in industries such as transportation and government into the digital age, where large pools of higher resolution video and sensor data must be retained for much longer periods of time and be instantly available for intensive analytics.

Designed for large, highly distributed video surveillance environments, EMC is introducing a new, purpose-built, EMC VNX-VSS100 storage system for the edge. This is based on the VNX platform that delivers uncompromising availability, simplicity, and affordability. The new VNX-VSS100 storage array complements EMC Isilon, an ideal scale-out data lake solution for highly scalable, large camera environments at the core.

In addition, EMC is announcing incremental investments to expand the company's existing video surveillance interoperability and testing labs in the U.S. and Asia enabling customers to leverage technologies from leading video surveillance partners including Axis, Genetec, Verint, and Milestone that have been validated and tested on both VNX-VSS and Isilon. EMC's partnerships with leading Video Management Software providers, video surveillance Distributors and Systems Integrators including Avnet, Ingram Micro, and Scansource combine to offer customers an open, flexible and cost-effective video surveillance solution to help simplify deployment and mitigate risk for large-scale, Edge-to-Core deployments.

The EMC VNX-VSS100 and EMC Isilon solutions are available globally today.

"EMC VNX-VSS100 at the edge and EMC Isilon at the core combine to manage surveillance data from a wide range of sources to provide a highly scalable, efficient, and cost-effective video surveillance storage portfolio for the most demanding and highly distributed environments," said Michael Gallant, Senior Director, Video Surveillance Practice at EMC. "To help us bring these innovations to satisfy this burgeoning market, EMC has partnered with leading physical security vendors including Axis, Genetec, Verint and Milestone that have each tested and validated their products on our platforms. Together we can offer customers integrated solutions that are open and flexible to their needs for simple deployment and management of large-scale systems for transportation, government and citywide surveillance."
