Promise’s Vess A2000 NVR Storage Appliance Certified for Milestone XProtect

PROMISE Technology, Inc. announced that the Vess A2000 Series NVR storage appliance is one of the first IT infrastructure solutions to be certified by Milestone Systems A/S for interoperability with XProtect video management software (VMS), an open platform IP video surveillance software.

After a testing process, the Vess A2000 Series was verified to not only offer an optimized user experience, but it delivered over four times the performance required for certification with XProtect VMS. The testing results prove that customers building surveillance solutions can deploy the Vess A2000 Series with XProtect VMS knowing the solution will perform reliably for recording and storing surveillance video.

The Milestone IT Infrastructure Certification Program tests and evaluates components to verify and document that they are interoperable and optimized for XProtect VMS. As a Milestone Certified Solution, customers are assured that the Vess A2000 Series can be deployed with XProtect VMS to meet the security needs of a range of projects, from small installations that only require a handful of cameras to large-scale deployments such as airports or city surveillance.

"PROMISE Technology has completed the Milestone Solution Certification for the Vess A2000 Series NVR storage appliances, which verifies the performance and reliability of Vess A2000 NVRs in operation with Milestone XProtect video management software," said Trine Voss, head of Milestone Solution Partner Program. "The performance results of the Vess A2000 Series certification are excellent; the NVRs performed 4 times better than the Milestone default benchmark. This Milestone Solution Certification is a clear indication of PROMISE Technology's commitment to end-users who are considering investing in high-performance security appliances and video management software."

 "We are very pleased that the Vess A2000 Series NVR storage appliance is one of the first IT infrastructure solutions to be certified by Milestone," said Jack Yang, senior product planning and marketing manager, PROMISE. "As a Milestone Certified Solution, Vess has been tested extensively with XProtect to ensure channel partners and customers a reliable and well-performing solution as well as an optimal user experience."

Qualstar Corporation Celebrates 30 Years in Business

Qualstar Corporation a manufacturer of data security and archive storage solutions and high efficiency power supplies, celebrates its 30th anniversary this year since commencing business operations in 1984.

"It is quite an accomplishment for any company to obtain their 30th anniversary, and I am very proud to be a part of that significant milestone for Qualstar. Over the course of three decades, we have successfully developed a lasting reliable product, a loyal customer base and we are well positioned for future growth," said Steven Bronson, Qualstar's Chief Executive Officer.

Qualstar has been creating reliable, cost effective and easy to use automated tape libraries for thirty years. Our tape library models provide combinations of capacity and throughput to match any storage management requirement, including multiple tape drives and span capacities from 310 terabytes to more than 73 petabytes. With low cost, high density Ultrium LTO technology, tape libraries are clearly the most efficient and cost effective storage for backup, data protection and archiving of electronic information. Qualstar tape libraries are designed for years of continuous unattended operation and allow simultaneous reading and writing to multiple drives. They also offer key features such as built in data encryption, key management and scalability to keep pace with rapidly expanding storage requirements.

Qualstar's tape libraries have a long history of quietly and reliably preserving and protecting our customers' most essential past, present and future data assets. We've built on that foundation and have added intelligent and focused talent to our engineering, sales and support teams so we can keep doing what we do best, even better -- designing and manufacturing products that continue to set standards for data capacity, density, reliability, power efficiency and scalability: all things that add up to the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in the industry. Our customers know they can count on us to design and manufacture reliable products so they can do theirs.

We also note that through our N2 Power division, for the past 16 years, we manufactured and offered state of the art power supply components for the electronics industry.

We look forward to the exciting opportunities in the data storage business and the power supply business based on technology advances and increased data that needs to be stored.
