Genetec certifies Pivot3 appliances
Genetec has expanded its list of qualified storage solutions for its unified security platform, Security Center, with the certification of Pivot3 vSTAC Watch storage and compute appliances.
Genetec’s recently launched Infrastructure Partner Certification Program is designed to qualify solutions from storage vendors to ensure optimal use with Genetec Security Center.
“Having undergone a series of stringent procedures by Genetec, as well as technology evaluation, testing, self validation, and training by Pivot3, vSTAC Watch appliances can now be easily and seamlessly integrated with Security Center,” explains George Marrousis, Technology Alliance Manager at Genetec. “Customers who opt to integrate Pivot3 vSTAC Watch storage solutions as part of their security infrastructure can do so with the confidence that their product choice has met or exceeded Genetec’s validation criteria, thereby giving them the best return on their investment.”
Pivot3 vSTAC Watch appliances deliver converged capabilities whereby NVR server applications run on the same highly-available Pivot3 shared storage (SAN) hardware array. The company says this approach helps reduce complexity and cost — physical server costs are eliminated through a converged footprint.
“With the certification of vSTAC Watch appliances, Genetec customers now have access to the benefits delivered by the vSTAC Watch including greater failover-protected storage capacity and bandwidth at a competitive price point. Moreover, because the vSTAC Watch combines virtual server and scale-out storage resources in one appliance, users can enjoy significant cost and infrastructure savings compared to traditional server-based storage appliances,” said Olivier Thierry, chief marketing officer at Pivot3.
