“With this verification from Milestone, Qumulo is able to provide video surveillance users with the assurance our storage solution has been designed and tested to work seamlessly in Milestone environments,” said Molly Presley, director of product marketing, Qumulo.

Milestone users can now employ Qumulo file storage to store, protect and access petabytes of video surveillance data, on-premises or in the cloud. Qumulo is ideal for scalable storage workloads like video surveillance, delivering the high-performance and integrated robust data protection required for these environments.

Milestone’s software supports more than 7,000 cameras and hardware devices and is proven in more than 150,000 installations worldwide. The company’s open platform community, which now includes Qumulo, is a network of over 8,000 hardware providers, camera manufacturers and software developers who integrate their products and applications with Milestone Systems’ video software platform.

Video surveillance, including Closed Circuit Television (CCTV), body cameras, and aerial cameras, has become a critical security tool for businesses and public-sector organizations such as governments, schools and law enforcement agencies. As the role of video has evolved, video surveillance environments present an increasingly unique storage challenge. Organizations are increasing the number of cameras, moving toward higher resolutions, and keeping video assets longer.

“Traditional storage solutions are often unable to meet modern customer needs for performance and capacity when it comes to video surveillance; it’s expensive to add data protection and redundancy and disruptive to add incremental infrastructure. This is where Qumulo differentiates itself from legacy storage providers,” said Presley.

With today’s verification, Qumulo now provides Milestone users with:

  • High-performance, scalable storage: Qumulo allows Milestone users to incrementally support their growing performance and capacity needs with a simple, scale-out architecture that uses Ethernet-attached storage and processor nodes. Capacity and performance can be automatically incorporated without downtime, ensuring that video surveillance operations continue seamlessly.
  • Cost-efficient, secure data protection: Qumulo provides built-in data protection, through the use of erasure coding and snapshots, for secure data retention without the need for adding in another backup solution or second copy. This enables Milestone video surveillance users to cost-effectively meet the demand for longer data retention requirements. If a second copy is desired, built in replication is available to move content to a second site.

    Organizations gain additional cost benefits as they are always able to fully utilize the capacity that they have paid for. Unlike many file storage solutions that reserve 15-20 percent of the purchased usable capacity for system administrative tasks, Qumulo’s advanced file system allows organizations to use 100 percent of the usable capacity purchased.
  • Real-time insights: Milestone users have simple, centralized access to all video surveillance data. In addition, with the use of Qumulo’s cloud-based analytics, administrators can access capacity trends to indicate how much storage is being added PER camera. Monitoring these trends over a period of time allow organizations to proactively plan for capacity growth and/or to make changes to retention management. This is a feature not available with other storage solutions.

The combined Qumulo-Milestone solution is available today through Qumulo-certified resellers and the Milestone Marketplace, which recently launched on Feb. 20.
