New solution delivers extreme scale and industry-leading value
Austin, Texas, July 17, 2018 — Pivot3, the hyperconverged infrastructure performance and technology leader, today announced the release of its new large-scale surveillance solution. Designed to support video surveillance and security deployments of 500TB or more, the platform provides the performance, resiliency, scalability and ease of use that is required for large scale environments at a lower cost than any other enterprise solution.
Available solutions for large video surveillance and security systems are typically cost-prohibitive. While costs can be reduced by using commodity NVRs, these systems lack the resilience, scalability, ease of use and advanced functionality required for modern surveillance environments. With this latest solution, Pivot3 is streamlining large scale video, security management and storage environments by hosting video management software, security applications and storage on a modular, scalable appliance. This significantly lowers cost and delivers higher rack density for multi-PB video installations with the lowest price point in the market for scalable video surveillance infrastructure. The solution can deliver over 6PB of storage in a single rack while supporting over 15,000 cameras (750 per node), reducing footprint, power and cooling requirements. This new offering further improves Pivot3’s industry-leading video performance, supporting up to 30,000 mbits/s of video ingest (1430 mbit/s per node), and increasing video retention times.
“With this new platform, Pivot3 delivers the best reliability and price point of any server and storage solution for video surveillance in the market,” said Brandon Reich, surveillance practice leader, Pivot3. “Building on more than a decade of experience creating solutions purpose-built for video, this platform supports more cameras and delivers longer video retention times for less cost, which broadens our dependable options available for our surveillance and security customers.”
Pivot3’s large-scale surveillance solution, the V5-2000, uses a highly-dense platform — dual Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and up to 288TB storage in two rack units — with advanced features, including automatic failover and advanced data protection. This eliminates downtime and data loss resulting from hardware failures, providing the resilience required for mission-critical video applications.
“Pivot3 delivers technology that allows us to offer highly reliable and scalable solutions to our customers while enabling us to differentiate ourselves in the market by lowering their acquisition and operational costs,” said Kit Bishop, manager of strategic growth, Johnson Controls. “This new solution brings even more value to the table, and delivers the robust enterprise-class platform that large-scale surveillance and security deployments require at an extremely compelling price point. As a result, our customers can achieve more consolidation that provides immediate ROI along with the option to add additional workloads as their needs evolve.”
