Rasilient Systems, Wasabi Partner for Edge-Based Surveillance Storage
The partnership allows the companies to offer Cloud, edge hardware and secure transmission in a simple, predictable RMR pricing model.
SANTA CLARA, CA — Wasabi Technologies, the hot Cloud storage company, announces a new partnership with Rasilient Systems, provider of forensic-grade video surveillance systems, to deliver hybrid Cloud storage solutions for video surveillance deployments at the edge.
The partnership is said to combine Rasilient’s surveillance system optimization with Wasabi’s scalability and low cost so users in industries with multiple distributed locations like healthcare networks, education systems and retail branches, can effectively handle the rising amount of video being captured at previously deemed “unserviceable” or “difficult” remote locations.
With the ever-increasing amount of data produced by video surveillance applications, moving and archiving infrequently-accessed video to an offsite, secure and reliable storage environment is the only way to keep up with the demand of footage being generated at the edge, according to the announcement. This can be especially difficult to achieve for remote locations due to limited bandwidth and connectivity needed to send video files without the risk of frame drop, video degradation,and data corruption.
Now with Wasabi’s hot Cloud storage on-demand, Rasilient customers can shorten upload windows and quickly access their video files for faster retrieval times with a highly scalable repository for their video management software (VMS) that supports high camera counts, high-definition resolutions, high frame rates and long retention periods.
Wasabi is said to be 80% less expensive to store video recordings than traditional Cloud providers and there are no fees for egress or API requests. This lower cost allows customers to utilize video surveillance not only for security and safety, but for a variety of uses to cost-effectively monitor operations for business optimization and process improvement, while holding on to that footage forever so they can refer back to it whenever necessary.
The partnership allows the companies offer Cloud, edge hardware and secure transmission in a simple, predictable RMR pricing model, omitting the expensive and fluctuating costs that are traditionally associated with Cloud storage solutions, according to the announcement.
“With modern systems capturing more evidence and anomalies than ever before, there is a surging demand for increased storage capacity that is scalable, dependable and secure,” says Sean Chang, co-founder and CEO at Rasilient Systems. “By partnering with Wasabi, we’re able to provide our customers with a hybrid Cloud solution that is affordable, fast, reliable, and secure so they are properly equipped to manage the growing volume of video captured across locations.”
Rasilient’s patent-pending, VMS-agnostic NFDLink communication software enables the use of commonly available broadband wired or wireless Internet services to send and receive forensic-grade video recordings directly to and from the Wasabi Cloud.
Wasabi’s flexible storage capacity allows organizations to leverage NFDLink to archive infrequently accessed video to Wasabi from any VMS, while keeping frequently accessed video on-site with Rasilient edge devices. Rasilient’s PrivateLok provides zero-knowledge encryption at the edge to add cybersecurity on top of Wasabi’s safe and secure environment. Only the edge user holds the key, so even if the network was somehow compromised no one could view sensitive video data.
Wasabi is deployed in fully secure and redundant data centers that are certified for SOC-2 and ISO 27001 compliance. The service is architected in accordance with security models and design practices. Organizations can configure their individual video files or storage buckets to be immutable for a user-defined retention period (in increments of days, weeks, months or years).
Designated video files or files written to that bucket cannot be deleted or altered in any way, by anyone, throughout its storage lifetime. This level of immutability helps Rasilient customers comply with state and local government regulations.
