SecurityInfoWatch Magazine writes about Milestones highest performance certified storage solution the Arxys | Shield.
Arxys Software Orchestrated Storage is now a Milestone Certified Solution
The testing and documentation for this was carried out with Milestone XProtect, the world’s leading open platform IP video management software (VMS). The certification verifies the interoperability of the tested solution with the full line of Milestone XProtect VMS offerings and describes a proven solution to deliver confidence and security for specifying, implementing and operating it.
The Arxys | Shield – Prime storage solution has been certified for use with Milestone XProtect VMS products, especially the more advanced offerings. Designed to provide highly scalable, flexible, redundant storage with a focus on the corrections and detention vertical market, Arxys solutions are proven to perform at an extremely high level with the Milestone XProtect VMS platform.
The latest tests were performed on the Arxys | Shield – Prime storage platform, integrated with Milestone XProtect Corporate 2017R3.
“The Milestone Solution Certification showed the Arxys | Shield – Prime delivered the highest HD camera counts (2,944 cameras) and the highest total camera throughput (3.6Gb/s) of any storage platform tested to date by Milestone Systems,” said Mike Tarras, Solutions Integration Engineer for Milestone Systems. “These were all high-performance tests, with the goal of finding the maximum number of cameras which the system could support, given the video stream profile that was used.”
The aim of these tests was to simulate video surveillance scenarios similar to those seen in the corrections and detention vertical market. In this sector, high definition video resolutions are required, with regulation retention periods that can be 180 days to 2 years. Video frame rates also need to be sufficient to capture human movement (12-15 FPS is minimally acceptable). In addition, busy correctional facilities can have very high camera counts, and are often co-located with medical facilities, law enforcement and other high-security areas, which leads to increased demands on the system performance.
