The VSS310-8TB-32ACS appliance, which will be sold through Ingram Micro, comes standard with 8TB of video storage and 32 pre-activated Axis Cameras Station licenses.

Video Storage Solutions, a BCD company, signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Ingram Micro Inc. to resell its Video Storage Solutions’ (VSS) IP Video Recording Servers to their channel partners in the United States.

“The SMB market represents a significant growth opportunity for channel partners who specialize in network video solutions and services,” said Tom Burns, director, Ingram Micro Physical Security Business Unit, North America. “We’re pleased to extend our network video solutions portfolio and offer the VSS line and entire catalog of purpose-built surveillance appliances.”

Available in both tower and rack-mount configurations, these value-priced recording appliances come standard with up to 48TB of video-optimized 6G SAS storage. All units include a five-year HP on-site warranty. VSS systems also ship standard with either Axis Camera Station or Milestone software licenses pre-loaded and ready to deploy.

“We were looking to manufacture a unit that is as simple to use as a DVR,” said Tom Yeargin, VSS’ national sales manager. “The security customer just wants to plug his cameras in and go, just like the old days — of course, with much more sophisticated technology on the inside.”
