Seagate Integration is Milestone Certified

May 2017 News, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Milestone Systems has announced that Seagate Technology RealStor is now a Milestone Certified Solution. Milestone Certified IT infrastructure components provide the assurance that they will function, operate, perform and easily integrate with Milestone XProtect VMS. With Milestone’s open platform architecture, users have endless possibilities to continually add more value through customisations and extensions of their video surveillance capabilities. Integrations with third-party systems and devices enable incorporating new innovations as they come to market.

For Milestone Solution Partners, the certification guarantees the interoperability of their tested solution with Milestone XProtect VMS, and it is a distinguishing feature of the solution. This distinction stems from the solution’s documented certification process with the Milestone XProtect platform. A proven, certified solution delivers confidence to those specifying, implementing and operating it.

The certification focuses on testing the solution’s architecture, functionality, performance impact and usability. The documentation, including test parameters and results summary as well as specifications, states the tested versions of the products and components from both Milestone and Seagate which were included in the solution certification: Milestone XProtect Corporate 2016 R3 video management software in operation with Seagate’s RealStor RAID storage platform. The certification applies for use with the entire XProtect product line.

The Seagate RealStor RAID storage array is compliant for meeting stringent telecommunications and military requirements for shock and vibration. The Seagate RealStor 6000 series used in the Milestone Certification Tests can scale to 448 terabytes in a single array and reach 1.9 petabytes with additional expansion shelves. Performance of up to 250 000 IOPS per disk is possible along with 12 gigabytes per second sequential reads and 5.7 gigabytes per second sequential writes. The Seagate RealStor chassis supports a hybrid solution of HDD and SSD devices to provide tiered storage for demanding environments.

“This is the first 4K-ready storage solution that we have certified. The video stream sizes that we were using in this testing were extremely large: a 12 Mbps stream is basically a 4K video stream size. And we were recording over 700 video streams of that size to the RealStor solution,” said Mike Tarras, solutions integrations engineer, Milestone Systems.

Based on the conclusive test results, Seagate Technology’s RealStor Storage Platform is proven to be a highly qualified and scalable storage

solution for Milestone Systems’ video surveillance installations because it reliably meets large video storage requirements with no performance impact.
