Video Storage Solutions (VSS) was formed with the single objective of providing system integrators that are part of the Milestone Community with verified video recording and storage appliances.
A division of BCD International, VSS specialises in offering video appliances that are pre-engineered with Milestone XProtect, Seagate Skyhawk surveillance-grade drives and its Storage Accelerator, which significantly increases storage scalability, performance and reliability for Milestone Systems’ projects.
In its decade-old relationship with Milestone, BCD International currently has more than 37 000 Milestone-infused systems recording over 3 000 000 cameras on six continents.
VSS is a one-stop-shop for pre-engineered and feature-rich Milestone-verified appliances that can withstand the taxing video data write load of systems with high camera counts. With guaranteed performance, VSS appliances offer peace of mind to consultants, system designers and Milestone Community system integrators who are involved in mission-critical infrastructure projects and other high-security applications.
Four practical benefits
1. Guaranteed performance: The VSS engineering team certifies the bandwidth capabilities of each appliance ordered through one of its authorised distributors. System integrators can rest assured that they are delivering an effective video recording and storage solution with guaranteed performance, provided bandwidth requirements do not exceed the appliance’s specification.
2. Performance with VSS Storage Accelerator: Unique to VSS (and other BCD International-branded appliances) the VSS Storage Accelerator eliminates disk I/O bandwidth bottlenecks. With the ability to process 700 Mbps of throughput on a single 1 GbE NIC, data captured by up to 700 cameras can be efficiently recorded on a single server. Since there is more storage in a single appliance, fewer appliances are needed, which ultimately creates a more competitive environment for Milestone.
3. VSS warranty facilitates privacy compliance: Unlike standard warranties that do not allow users to retain hard drives which have failed, both the three- and five-year, global on-site, next business day, Keep Your Hard Drive Warranty negates the need for customers to have to choose between risking sensitive data falling into the wrong hands or insisting on keeping a faulty hard drive. The latter option likely means they will be breaking the terms of most existing standard warranty agreements.
4. Lower cost of ownership: When you take all the above factors into account, VSS delivers solutions that lower the total cost of ownership and are the most cost-effective over the three or five years that the integrator has the project under contract.
