SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) today announced it received the Innovative Security Products award for the new Xcellis™ high-performance scale-out tiered storage solution at the 2015 Top 10 Innovative Security Products Award Ceremony. The award recognizes companies advancing the state of the art in storage technologies designed to enhance security.
Explosive Growth in Video Surveillance Storage The video surveillance market has seen rapid change and growth in the last year with the accelerated adoption of high-definition cameras, longer retention times for video-based data and the implementation of sophisticated analytical tools. Yet, tight budgets and high storage costs have forced security managers to make difficult trade-offs effecting their security mission. The need for an intelligent, scalable platform to store, manage and protect video data efficiently and cost-effectively to maximize its value has never been greater.
Xcellis Scale-out Storage Designed for Video Surveillance and Security Applications Quantum, through its Xcellis scale-out storage solution, provides a simple-to-manage surveillance storage foundation that can grow under a single file system designed specifically for video applications. This foundation enables a tiered approach to storage architectures for surveillance and security applications, which leverages high-performance disk, high-capacity disk, file-based tape and the cloud. The tiered system enables customers to meet their total capacity needs more cost-effectively and optimize their storage infrastructure based on budget, retention policies and access requirements, yet make it easy to manage under a single file system, reducing IT intervention and management costs.
The Top 10 Innovative Security Products Award Ceremony focuses on the latest innovations in public security solutions in China. Hosted by the Shenzhen Security and Protection Industry Association, CPS.com.cn, China Public Security Magazine and journalists of Smart China, this year's event took place Jan. 7 at Window of the World in Shenzhen, China.
