Quantum Teams With Tiger Surveillance for Better Long-Term Video Data Retention
Joint solutions enable integration of cloud storage into video surveillance workflows for data analysis, compliance and business insights.
Video and unstructured data company Quantum Corporation is partnering with video surveillance data management platform Tiger Surveillance to “deliver end-to-end solutions for long-term retention and archiving of video surveillance data,” according to the joint announcement.
Quantum’s Smart NVR, VS-HCI and USP solutions that capture and store video surveillance data are now certified with Surveillance Bridge software by Tiger Surveillance to “tier and archive data to public and private storage clouds,” the announcement says.
These new offerings “provide a simple solution to lower the overall cost of storing and managing growing amounts of retained video surveillance data to meet emerging data analytics needs and compliance requirements,” according to the joint announcement.
“Due to the predominance of high-resolution cameras at more and more locations, longer retention times imposed by government regulation and compliance policies, plus the growing use of video analytics, our surveillance customers’ data continues to grow,” says Choon-Seng Tan, general manager, strategic markets for Quantum, in the joint announcement.
“With our Tiger Surveillance partnership, we are extending our video surveillance solutions to include cloud-enabled workflows for greater agility, pay-as-you-grow economics, and easy scalability. In addition, we can more effectively deliver complete end-to-end video surveillance solutions, from ingest to analysis to archive.”
Surveillance Bridge transparently and automatically moves less frequently accessed video from local storage to either a public or private cloud, the joint announcement says.
Supported public storage cloud providers include AWS, Microsoft, Google Cloud, and others. Supported private cloud storage solutions include Quantum ActiveScale, a scalable solution for long-term retention that enables customers to create a private cloud on premises.
“With our partnership with Quantum, we continue to expand our presence in the video surveillance market,” says Lance Kelson, CEO, Tiger Surveillance, in the joint announcement. “Surveillance Bridge, our software-only solution, enables customers to easily adopt public and private cloud storage solutions into their video surveillance workflows.
“This unlocks tremendous opportunities for seamless capacity expansion, disaster recovery, cost optimization, and long-term video retention. We look forward to driving our joint solutions to market with Quantum,” he says.
Joint solutions from Tiger Surveillance and Quantum are immediately available. Qualified Surveillance Bridge plug-ins compatible with Quantum VS-HCI, USP and Smart NVR solutions are available for a variety of video management systems, including Milestone, Avigilon, Genetec, and Qognify.
