The solutions combine intelligent video management software and systems
from the March Networks VideoSphere portfolio with Sun
Fire x64 servers. They enable organizations to deploy advanced
surveillance applications, such as video analytics, and intelligently
manage the convergence of IP video technologies with high performance
IT infrastructure.

Organizations in a wide range of markets are seeking to take advantage
of next-generation surveillance technologies optimized to run over IP
networks. They are looking for integrated solutions that combine
best-in-class software and hardware products with common management
software and a flexible architecture that can scale to support the most
demanding requirements.

March Networks’ VideoSphere Intelligent Video Management portfolio
enables customers to deploy all-IP video solutions or hybrid video
networks that include both analog and IP cameras and leverage existing
cabling infrastructure. In either environment, organizations can
install Sun Fire X4500 and X4150 servers for high density video
recording and storage.

The Sun Fire X4500 and X4150 servers feature an
energy-efficient design and save on power and cooling. Both run on nearly
any operating system, including Solaris 10 Operating System, Linux,
and Windows. The Sun Fire x64 servers, which work with Sun StorageTek
solutions to deliver up to 48 Terabytes of storage capacity,
interoperate with VideoSphere Video Management System software to
ensure the cost-effective retention of high resolution video from any
number of cameras for extended periods of time.


March Networks’ video
management expertise is well recognized in the surveillance industry,”
said Joe Heel, senior vice-president, Global Storage Practice, Sun
Microsystems, Inc. “By combining these capabilities with storage
systems that deliver the highest storage density available, Sun is
leading the industry in enabling customers to easily manage demanding,
high-bandwidth applications, reduce system complexity and optimize data
