Veracity | Milestone | COLDSTORE Arcus
Veracity, in partnership with Milestone Systems, announces COLDSTORE Arcus, a video surveillance platform for security installations requiring simple live view and forensic playback capabilities with no need for intricate feature sets or complex system architecture.
This solution is a pre-integrated product powered by Milestone Arcus™ video management software (VMS) that is embedded in the COLDSTORE hardware - ready to plug in, power on and operate.
At the core of this new surveillance system is COLDSTORE - the innovative storage system that challenges many of the cost and performance constraints experienced by the security industry when specifying and using traditional RAID-based storage systems. It uses patented LAID™ (Linear Array of Idle Disks) technology, which offers exceptional reliability, quick file access and low running costs.
Milestone chose to partner with Veracity due to the innovative video storage approach implemented by COLDSTORE. Engineers from both companies have worked closely together to exploit the key product advantages so the end result will be a radical departure from today’s traditional client/server/storage architecture that meet the needs of the video surveillance market specifically, while cutting running costs substantially and dramatically increasing the lifespan of the hard drive.
Veracity's COLDSTORE Arcus is a high-capacity surveillance solution with no need for VMS servers. Milestone Systems’ newest video management software is pre-integrated. Veracity, manufacturers of COLDSTORE, the surveillance industry’s first sequential storage system, are delighted to announce COLDSTORE Arcus, a video surveillance platform for security installations requiring simple live view and forensic playback capabilities with no need for intricate feature sets or complex system architecture.
Veracity’s well-established COLDSTORE technology is a high-reliability sequential storage system specifically designed for video surveillance storage. Milestone System’s newly-announced Milestone Arcus is an embedded VMS offering for integration into technology partners’ hardware platforms. Milestone Arcus and COLDSTORE are an ideal match, combining in a single-box solution which supports all IP camera types. COLDSTORE Arcus provides capacity of up to 75TB of video data storage and resource-effective power consumption of less than 1 watt per terabyte.
The Milestone Arcus software includes a web-server solution with a simplified user interface adjusted to Veracity specifications. The web browser-based approach will allow users to interact with the system from any platform supporting a compatible browser. The simplicity of the interface combined with automatic camera detection and configuration means that installation will be extremely easy and almost no training will be necessary for playback and live viewing.
The advanced sequential storage technology in COLDSTORE allows the use of any consumer hard drive to provide up to 75TB of high-reliability storage across 15 drive bays. The entire system operates on less than 60 watts, requires no external cooling, and creates a significant differentiator in today’s security market.
COLDSTORE ARCUS is also available on COLDSTORE COMPACT - 16TB system that uses only 16watts. (Shipping end of Q2)
Veracity’s COLDSTORE Arcus offers a streamlined video management tool and storage system that does not require a separate VMS server. COLDSTORE Arcus will be sold by Veracity’s channel partners, and Milestone Systems will provide future upgrades through ongoing releases of the software. Milestone chose to partner with Veracity due to the innovative video storage approach implemented by COLDSTORE. Engineers from both companies have worked closely together to exploit the key product advantages so the end result will be a radical departure from today’s traditional client/server/storage architecture.
“Veracity is an ideal technology partner for this first phase in the launch of Milestone Arcus,” says Lars Nordenlund, VP of Incubation & Ventures at Milestone Systems. “Their COLDSTORE system offers an innovative approach to the storage of surveillance video and therefore is a perfect match for our new business model of embedded video systems with Milestone Arcus.”
Alastair McLeod, the Founder and Group CEO of Veracity, agrees: “Milestone has long been a leader in the VMS world, and we saw that Veracity and Milestone shared the same vision for the future of the video surveillance industry. Both parties are excited about the prospects for COLDSTORE Arcus.”
Veracity was founded to support the migration from analogue video to high-resolution IP video systems and has developed an innovative family of products to solve specific problems in IP video system design and installation. These include solutions for practical connectivity problems and a radical approach to surveillance storage, resulting in the high-reliability, high-capacity sequential storage system called COLDSTORE. Veracity’s products are distributed throughout the world and are recognized for their innovation and quality.
