At last month’s ASIS 2012, Salient Systems Corp., Austin, Texas, unveiled CompleteView Cloud, a hosted video surveillance service powered by Dell OEM Solutions’ Dell Cloud with VMware vCloud Datacenter Service at the platform level.

CompleteView Cloud is designed to provide a secure, cloud-based solution to host customer video and provide a simple interface for users to access the complete solution. The solution is also designed to simplify video surveillance deployment and integration while delivering a flexible solution for growth and expansion and allow companies to take advantage of a high-quality solution while controlling costs.

“We are proud to work with a global solution provider like Dell to create a viable, real-time surveillance solution hosted in a reliable cloud environment,” said Bob Wilber, CEO of Salient Systems. “Consolidating surveillance video from multiple locations to a centrally hosted data center opens up a vast new market for service providers and benefits users by decreasing capital expenditures for equipment and installation costs.”

Using video surveillance-as-a-service (VSaaS) technology, CompleteView integrates Axis Communications’ One-Click Camera Connection to stream video from IP cameras and encoders over the Internet to the Dell Cloud, which provides a seamless, multi-tenant environment for running virtual systems. The accessibility and flexibility of cloud-based services makes video available anywhere and at any time via any Internet-connected device.

“Dell’s expertise in cloud computing services provides the foundation and infrastructure to companies like Salient Systems as they design, build and deploy highly efficient cloud solutions in expanding vertical markets,” said Nnamdi Orakwue, vice president, Infrastructure Cloud Services. “We are meeting an ever increasing demand for cloud technologies, including IT virtualization, public and private cloud deployments, turnkey solutions and evolving requirements for data, workflow and applications support.”
