Pivot3, a developer of globally hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solutions, announced it has further enhanced its long-standing partnership with Milestone Systems through the certification of its HCI appliances with the XProtect VMS suite. The certification documents how the combination of XProtect software failover with Pivot3 vSTAC OS hardware failover ensures that video data is stored and protected to the industry’s highest standards. The test process details how the two solutions operate together, and provides customers with confidence that the technologies meet maximum performance and integration standards.

Each certification project has three phases, beginning with two scenarios of a benchmark test and a maximum performance test. Statistics from the Milestone XProtect recording servers are analyzed to determine performance rates. In both optimal and degraded mode, the Pivot3 system configured with RAID6E volumes achieves industry-leading throughput while offering unique fault tolerance to ensure continuity of video ingest under the most demanding scenarios, the companies described. These positive results verify that the integration between Pivot3 and XProtect meets established best practices, it was stated.

“The Milestone Solution Certification assures that Pivot3’s high-performance, hyper-converged infrastructure solution is characterized for customer requirements,” said Reinier Tuinzing, strategic alliances manager – Americas, Milestone Systems. “It provides customers and systems integrators the flexibility to reap the full benefits of their chosen surveillance infrastructure while confirming critical video and business data is not only secure, but available when needed.”

Francois Wolf, chief marketing officer, Pivot3, said, “The certification of our Global HCI appliances with Milestone XProtect ensures the reliability and performance of our joint customers’ video surveillance solutions. Milestone’s flexibility and compatibility with third-party architectures make them a leader in scalable VMS solutions. We have enjoyed a very strong relationship with Milestone, resulting in a significant number of large deployments around the world. This certification further extends our partnership and ensures our technologies meet the growing demands of today’s sophisticated surveillance customers.”
