Pivot3, provider of intelligent hyperconverged infrastructure solutions for mission critical video, announced a new platform for video surveillance solutions that enable organizations to do more with less in supporting their mission-critical security operations. These Pivot3 solutions are powered by the next generation Lenovo ThinkSystem SR655 server platform with 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processor, resulting in improved camera density at a lower overall TCO for customers who consider their video mission critical, according to the company.
“More and more customers are juggling how to enable better business decisions through technology, including capturing, storing and analyzing massive amounts of video data to enable real-time decision making with tight budgets,” said Kamran Amini, vice president and general manager of server, storage and software defined infrastructure, Lenovo Data Center Group. “Lenovo is collaborating with Pivot3 to deliver innovative solutions that empower customers with the performance they need to handle today’s fast-paced environments while eliminating their challenges.”
With the Lenovo ThinkSystem SR655 server platform, the new Pivot3 Surveillance Series appliances provide the performance of a dual-socket server at a lower acquisition cost. The company also says the single-socket configuration also offers the potential of up to 50 percent savings on software licensing compared to the dual socket x86 alternative without sacrificing any performance. These savings are due to the solution’s use of one CPU instead of two CPUs. Because the Lenovo ThinkSystem servers include the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors they also support PCIe 4, which delivers 100% bandwidth increases compared to PCIe 3. With this update, customers get more bandwidth for video recording and an increase in networking speed, with 25GbE support to enable faster video transfer from the edge to the core. The Pivot3 solutions empower organizations dealing with the enormous growth of video to capture, store and analyze massive amounts of video data while controlling infrastructure investments.
The flexibility of the Lenovo ThinkSystem SR655 allows servers to be configured to support the massive processing requirements of new video analytics applications as well, meaning customers can deploy one modular, flexible software-defined platform to meet all their mixed security-workload requirements. This significantly reduces complexity and cost of ownership over traditional 3-tier proprietary systems or bare-metal servers.
