BCD unveils virtualised solution to enhance physical security

BCD has expanded its virtualised infrastructure solutions portfolio with the release of vSTORE.

A highly available solution, vSTORE from BCD leverages virtual machine technology to optimise the utilisation of system resources and reduces total cost of ownership.

With vSTORE, a common storage point acts as a centralised storage location for all files that make up the virtual machine. This centralised storage location is comprised of high speed SAN storage, allowing for VM migration upon failure between nodes.

Virtual machines, as well as primary and secondary storage, are all SAN-based. Because of this, the recording server only needs enough local storage available to install ESXi in a highly available, resilient deployment.

In the event of a node failure, vSTORE migrates all virtual machines to the remaining nodes, completely eliminating the risk of downtime. With the ability to run all access control, building management and video management systems on the system, vSTORE also eliminates the need to run multiple appliances while providing resiliency.

vSTORE provides security professionals with VMS-agnostic high availability for virtual machines, regardless of the native capability of the software being deployed on the virtual machines.

Paired with BCD’s Deepstor SAN storage solutions, vSTORE provides easy-to-deploy external storage.
