ACCORDING to Jon Tinberg, marketing and channel sales manager, ANZ, Quantum’s Xcellis product was recognised recently with a Top 10 Innovations in Security Products Award in China. 

“Storage is a very competitive space – especially in China – and this award further validates our unique proposition in the market and ability to support the security industry’s video surveillance solutions,” Tinberg said.

The award recognizes companies advancing the state of the art in storage technologies designed to enhance security. Quantum, through its Xcellis scale-out storage solution, provides a simple-to-manage surveillance storage foundation that can grow under a single file system designed specifically for video applications. This foundation enables a tiered approach to storage architectures for surveillance and security applications, which leverages high-performance disk, high-capacity disk, file-based tape and the cloud. 

The tiered system enables customers to meet their total capacity needs more cost-effectively and optimize their storage infrastructure based on budget, retention policies and access requirements, yet make it easy to manage under a single file system, reducing IT intervention and management costs.

The Top 10 Innovative Security Products Award Ceremony focuses on the latest innovations in public security solutions in China. Hosted by the Shenzhen Security and Protection Industry Association, CPS.com.cn, China Public Security Magazine and journalists of Smart China, this year’s event took place at Window of the World in Shenzhen, China, last month.♦
