Pivot3 eliminates the server from video surveillance

Thursday, September 18, 2008

ATLANTA--High-definition storage maker Pivot3 made a splash here at the ASIS International show with its new "serverless computing" platform, whereby video management, PSIM and virtually any other security software can be run directly on Pivot3's storage solution, eliminating the need for a server in a video surveillance solution. The solution debuts with integration with software makers Exacq, Genetec, Lenel, Milestone and OnSSI, and certified integrators Southwest Surveillance Systems, Connections IT, Aware Digital and Broadcast Technologies.
Lee Caswell, chief marketing officer at Pivot3 and a co-founder, said his organization is looking to work with anyone doing storage-heavy surveillance applications, both those from traditional security backgrounds and otherwise. He said the solution really makes sense starting at about 4 terabytes.
The integration and manufacturing partners are all part of the Serverless Computing Certification Partner Program, which provides pre- and post-sales support, including configuration assistance, demo system loaners and joint sales calls, along with marketing assistance, access to a high-definition video simulator tool that allows for performance assessments, and access to Pivot3's engineering team.
