Camsecure is the first specifier and installer of the NASA-endorsed DDN content intensive storage option in South Africa.
“We have three installed applications of DDN’s storage solutions and we are currently negotiating for further sites,” said Francois Malan, MD of Camsecure. “By providing our customers with storage solutions of this nature, we ensure a turnkey security solution that does not stop at the acquisition of data, but further provides them with a secure platform on which to retain and access their critical data.”
DDN Storage provides storage array, file system and object storage appliances for the cloud to the world’s most data-intensive environments. “These scalable and efficient storage solutions enable customers to accelerate time to results, scale simply as data sets continue to grow and gain competitive advantage through resolving performance and capacity scaling challenges.”
The system can handle tens of thousands of cameras and is extremely scalable. “DDN is used by the largest surveillance sites in the world and is also used by six out of 10 high-performance computers. The footprint of DDN solutions reads like a ‘Who’s Who’ of the corporate world, so our customers can rest assured that their valuable data is in the right hands.”
