Recording Appliances for Milestone Systems Announced

Video Storage Solutions (VSS), today released its portfolio of video recording appliances specifically pre-engineered for Milestone Systems XProtect


BUFFALO GROVE, IL - Sept. 9, 2019 – Video Storage Solutions (VSS), today released its portfolio of video recording appliances specifically pre-engineered for Milestone Systems XProtect video surveillance software. The systems range from desktop tower and 1U short-depth to 2U rack models capable of housing up to 364TB of storage. For those Milestone-based projects requiring long-term archiving, 1PB external storage options are also available. This extensive family of products also includes client viewing stations with multiple GPU support. All systems are bandwidth-guaranteed and VSS-certified to support Milestone XProtect surveillance projects. At press time, models were in the final status of Milestone Systems’ Hardware Verification processing.

The V-Series models are perfect for budget-challenged projects that still require professional-grade quality, reliability, and maximum uptime. All systems come standard with Intel® Core™ 9th generation processors. These appliances include options of single or dual-SSD operating system drives, single or redundant power, and Microsoft Windows 10 Pro or Windows Server 2016 operating systems. All of the V-Series systems utilize Seagate Skyhawk surveillance drives and come standard with a three-year worldwide on-site warranty.

The Enterprise-grade M-Series incorporates a variety of Intel processors, including, Intel® Xeon® E-2136 Processor, Intel Core 9th generation, and second-generation Xeon Scalable Processors, optional SAS hard drives, and a five-year worldwide on-site warranty.

The M-Series also features the VSS Storage Accelerator, which, with data speeds exceeding 2500MB/s, allows for continuous read and write of video data. This eliminates the need for live video drives within the system and delivers the highest throughput rates ever recorded on a Milestone XProtect-based appliance without the use of 15K live video drives. The M-Series systems are capable of recording hundreds and hundreds of high-resolution cameras on a single video recording appliance. The M-Series portfolio also includes management appliances supporting over 5000 cameras.

As data integrity is more critical than ever, every VSS system comes standard with the Keep Your Hard Drive feature, in addition to the on-site warranty. This allows the customer to retain control over their most sensitive data and be compliant with data privacy regulations and internal company policies. This also protects against civil liability and safeguards the organization from the risks associated with third-party mismanagement. The Keep Your Hard Drive warranty extends to the Client Viewing Stations, which also includes a five-year on-site warranty.

This entire family of products is exclusively available through Milestone Systems’ worldwide authorized distribution channel and immediately available for delivery in less than two weeks upon order.
