Qumulo’s distributed file system certified with Genetec Security Center

Qumulo, a leader in hybrid cloud file storage, announced that Qumulo’s file storage solution has been certified with Genetec Security Center, an open-architecture platform that unifies IP-based video surveillance, access control, automatic license plate recognition (ALPR), communications, and analytics.

Genetec users can now utilize Qumulo’s scalable, high performance file storage system for cost-effective, long-term data retention and fast, unified data accessibility.

Qumulo’s file storage solutions are becoming increasingly vital to enterprises as the amount of video content being created, analyzed, and retained is rapidly increasing. This is driving a massive rise in storage capacity requirements.

As video assets continue to grow in size and complexity, storage performance and capacity can be added seamlessly to Qumulo’s storage, allowing for growth without system disruption or downtime.

“This certification brings together our unified security platform with Qumulo’s file storage to offer another solution that helps organizations mitigate these challenges and meet the business demands of today’s modern organizations,” said David Grey, Commercial Lead, Product Line Management at Genetec.

Qumulo’s file system includes real-time analytics to help Genetec users identify trends and bottlenecks in their data, and predict future capacity requirements.

Administrators can access capacity trends, down to an individual camera, to indicate how much storage is being consumed. Analyzing these trends over time will allow an organization to plan for capacity growth, or make adjustments to their retention schemes.

Additionally, using erasure coding, Qumulo provides a high level of data protection for small and large files, without significant capacity overheads. Built-in data protection eliminates the need for duplicate data copies or the integration of third-party data protection applications.

“Storage is a critical part of the broader video surveillance and security ecosystem, and Qumulo is uniquely able to provide businesses, government and public institutions with a modern file solution that meets their demands for scalability, built-in data protection, and ease of management,” said Molly Presley, Director of Product Marketing at Qumulo.
