San Diego, CA - October 16, 2012 - SoleraTec LLC, a provider of innovative video lifecycle management and storage products, announces the certification and validation of Imation's RDX A8 removable hard disk storage library. This certification provides the compatibility and interoperability between SoleraTec's Phoenix RSM™ video storage management software and Imation's RDX A8 product line delivering affordable long-term video surveillance retention. Comprehensive testing by SoleraTec on the compatibility and ease of use of the Imation RDX A8 removable hard disk storage library confirms that organizations can now obtain long-term retention of their video surveillance feeds when managed by Phoenix RSM software.
"For years, organizations have sought ways to store their increasing volume of video surveillance feeds for longer periods of time. Now, by using RDX media as an affordable, easy to use and durable solution, companies can retain their video assets affordably," said Brian Findlay, Executive Director of Global Product Management, Imation. "The integration of Imation's RDX A8 with SoleraTec's Phoenix RSM represents an important progression of video surveillance storage through multi-tiered storage capabilities."
Benefits of Imation's A8 storage platform:
The multiple-bay RDX A8 networked storage array enables organizations to access up to 12TB of video data (on eight RDX removable disk cartridges, based on 1.5 TB cartridges), instantly, with the Phoenix RSM storage management software. Additionally, users will be directed to specific offline RDX cartridge to reload when searching for older video assets. Leveraging its ability to mix different capacity RDX media (320GB, 500GB, 1 TB and 1.5TB) in a single appliance, the RDX A8 provides "pay-as-you-grow" storage scalability and investment protection.
"For our unique clients, this really becomes the perfect scenario. You have a leading company providing best-in-practice software, a global leader in hardware solutions offering the latest in data storage and an industry recognized security services firm layering strategic insight. From our perspective, there's no doubt this changes the game for the better," said Glenn Aga, COO of Imation master reseller Red5Security of Newport Beach, CA.
This integration between Imation RDX A8 and Phoenix RSM delivers overarching video surveillance asset management into an entire surveillance infrastructure at affordable, cost-efficient price points. The ease of use in searching and video playback with Phoenix RSM combined with the near-line and offline video retention of the RDX A8 provides a viable long-term video retention solution.
