BCDVideo’s Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Video Surveillance (HCI-VS), powered by Scale Computing, utilizes the Scale Computing Reliable Independent Block Engine (SCRIBE) embedded in each node to manage all storage as one logical pool. The real benefits of SCRIBE come from the intelligent distribution of blocks redundantly across the cluster to maximize availability and performance for each virtual machine.
Advances In Infrastructure That Reduce Complexity: As BCDVideo closes out another expo attending ISC West 2019, one theme resonated throughout the show. System Integrators are looking for ways to deliver better solutions, leverage emerging technologies, and advance the capabilities of physical security infrastructures. One of the focal points for BCDVideo this year is hyperconvergence systems, or Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI). Read more on why this truly is a game changer for the video surveillance market.
BCDVideo and Scale Computing announced the certification of BCDVideo’s new Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Video Surveillance (HCI-VS). Developed over the last year and underpinned by Scale’s HC3 software, BCD218-HCI Series, built on a Dell OEM technology foundation, offers modularity and ease-of-use without sacrificing performance and quality. Initial tests of the solution, configured with Genetec’s Security Center software.
Revolutionizing how throughput is maximized in Milestone Systems video recorders, BCDVideo released today the BCDVideo Accelerator (BVA) equipped video recording servers for Milestone, which incorporate the company’s innovative accelerator technology and eliminates the need for extra storage solutions, including the costly and space-consuming 15,000rpm hard disk drives previously required to attain necessary system bandwidth.
A new NVR series launched by Wavestore is utilizing powerful video processing technology from BCDVideo. Available from all Wavestore Authorised Distributors and Partners around the world, the WR-Series NVRs have been engineered for the efficient processing and storage of video and are an ideal complement for Wavestore’s feature-rich video management software (VMS).
The physical security world is constantly evolving. The migration from analog to digital triggered significant changes in both the market and required skill set to support these newer technologies. As we usher in the new year, additional changes are on the horizon. While virtualization is not a new concept, hyperconverged infrastructure is becoming more and more prevalent in the security market. This primer will focus on the benefits associated with virtualization and how it applies to hyperconverged infrastructure in the security industry.
ALE, operating under the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise brand, announced they have appointed Darren Giacomini, Director of Advanced Systems Architecture at BCDVideo, to their Global Customer Advisory Board. Darren has over 16-years of networking experience. His latest project includes Shortest Path Bridging (SPB) technology offered on the Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch® family of products, the joint offer creates a highly available network that exceeds speed and management requirements to support the massive data transfer and file volume of a surveillance system, as well as engineering networking solutions.
BCDVideo announced an exclusive technology and engineering partnership enabling BCDVideo to deliver turnkey hyperconverged solutions based on Scale Computing’s HC3™ software to BCDVideo’s global network of security integrators and OEM customers. There is a clear gap in the market for a simple, deployable hyperconverged video solution, BCDVideo and Scale spent the last year co-developing and certifying a platform which fits seamlessly into the BCDVideo product philosophy of lessening the Total Cost of Ownership, and meets the security integrators needs for performance, scalability and simplicity, all in a single platform.
Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise and BCDVideo announced they are working together to address the growing demand of businesses to enhance public security and safety via video surveillance and networking. Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise and BCDVideo develop technical and sales alliance to address evolving video surveillance market. Demand for video surveillance and connected safety in hospitality, casino, arena, cities, and healthcare environments drive increase in technology requirements.
BCDVideo announces the addition of their new Pro-Lite Server Switch Bundles featuring Zero Touch Provisioning. Designed to reduce errors and labor expenses the configuration will provision cameras in your network automatically, with minimal manual intervention. Each bundle can accommodate up to 7, 16 or 24 cameras providing security integrators with a simplified and affordable solution for small to mid-size video surveillance projects.
