Data Storage Provider Teams with Milestone Systems and SoleraTec to Deliver Optimized Video Lifecycle Management

BOULDER, Colo.—May 10, 2012Spectra Logic today announced that it will be showcasing its TSeries digital data tape library at the IFSEC International security show, May 14-17, 2012 in Birmingham, UK. The company will partner with Milestone Systems and SoleraTec to demonstrate an integrated solution for video lifecycle management in the Milestone Systems’ booth located in Hall 4/Stand F90.

The integrated solution on display at IFSEC features Milestone’s XProtect® software, SoleraTec’s Phoenix RSM software and a Spectra® T50e LTO digital data tape library. The solution offers customers a complete end-to-end package that meets both short and long term video data retention requirements.

“Providing a compelling, easy-to-use, affordable, yet professional video surveillance management solution is our top focus. By teaming with Spectra Logic and Milestone, any organization that needs longer-term video retention can now trust a seamlessly integrated long-term video management system," said Mark Armstrong, CEO of SoleraTec.

Milestone XProtect is an open platform that allows best-in-class solutions to video enable business thereby reducing costs, optimizing processes, protecting people and assets and ultimately increasing value in customers’ products and services.
To provide further value to the Milestone recording server, SoleraTec’s Phoenix RSM software extends archive and retention capacity to removable storage media such as LTO digital computer data tape. Phoenix RSM manages online, near-line, and offline storage resources for the Milestone platform and makes all video assets very quickly searchable and viewable.

“The nice thing is that we are seeing these two companies combine their technologies for an exponentially innovative solution that supports the storage from our video management software. This lifts the Milestone open platform concept to another level of cost-saving benefits for customers,” said Martin Friis-Mikkelsen, head of strategic alliances at Milestone Systems.

With Milestone XProtect combined with Phoenix RSM, megapixel and HD cameras can now be used with no distress over storage limitations. The Spectra Logic data tape libraries managed by the Phoenix RSM solution allow high-resolution video feeds to be stored on lower-cost storage devices while Phoenix RSM-generated low-resolution companion files remain on primary storage for ultra-fast search and video playback.

Spectra Logic’s TSeries family of digital data tape storage systems meets long-term retention and accessibility requirements and provides the lowest cost per GB storage for surveillance video. These systems enable ultra-fast search and playback, the ability to store at maximum frame rates and resolution, near-line and offline video storage capabilities, and cost effective scaling to meet future capacity needs.

“A number of factors are driving the use of video surveillance including the threat of terrorism, overall crime and theft, and the convergence from analog to digital. These trends create a huge opportunity for the storage industry, which is tasked with properly storing and retaining the data contained within the video,” said Brian Grainger, vice president of worldwide sales, Spectra Logic. “Spectra Logic’s libraries allow companies to preserve surveillance video while meeting long-term retention and accessibility requirements.”
