Qognify introduces VisionHub Qblock

April 2017 Surveillance, Infrastructure, Products & Solutions

Qognify has announced the launch of Qblock. Qblock is built on technology from Dell EMC to address the growing need for securely and

efficiently storing critical video data. The Qblock converged infrastructure is designed specifically for the surveillance industry, optimised with Qognify’s video management solution.

Qblock meets the needs of clients who have expanded surveillance environments and/or critical video data with storage-intense requirements. This integrated solution can scale to support thousands of video channels with easy, centralised management, avoiding complex storage migrations.

Qblock combines the power of Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, Dell EMC Isilon storage and Qognify’s VisionHub video management solution to create a best-of-breed, large-scale solution. As storage requirements are rapidly increasing, the need for a turnkey solution that is easy to deploy and manage has become a market necessity. VisionHub Qblock addresses this need, allowing users to scale their solution as much as required, without having to re-architect it.

Qblock is now offered to the market by Qognify to meet the needs of both security and IT in a single solution. Support for the solution and all its components is provided from a single point of contact. “Based on the surveillance market’s trajectory, the need for a reliable, scalable, and simple video storage solution was clear. Coupled with our video storage management capabilities and Dell EMC technology, we are delivering a solution that addresses the stringent IT requirements from a VMS solution,” commented Moti Shabtai, CEO and president of Qognify.

For security-conscious organisations, the loss of video is unacceptable, making high availability and fault tolerance critical. Qblock responds to this need by reducing failover time and increasing fault tolerance beyond typical RAID storage configurations. “Qblock is ideal for storage-savvy organisations that understand their needs will only increase, and wish to avoid complex migrations,” said Ken Mills, general manager and chief technology officer, surveillance and security, Dell EMC. “The powerful combination of technologies allows organisations to future-proof their surveillance storage solution.”
