Genetec, a technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions, unveiled Streamvault Edge at ISC West. The Edge is an innovative new line of connected appliances that enables the easy transition to a hybrid-cloud infrastructure and marks the beginning of a new edge platform strategy for Genetec.
Ideally suited for multi-site operations such as banking, retail, or businesses with remote or unmanned sites, Streamvault Edge enables organisations to modernise their security infrastructure while leveraging existing legacy sensor infrastructure. The Edge enables the gradual migration of security systems to a hybrid architecture without disrupting operations. The appliance is also a low-maintenance, easy to install edge device that makes the commissioning, deployment, and management of connected remote sites simple and straightforward without the need of specialised IT expertise.
At its initial launch, Streamvault Edge will focus on delivering a hybrid cloud architecture for enterprise-grade video surveillance, with more security and IoT devices to be supported in the coming months. “This is just the beginning of a new edge platform strategy, and a more efficient way of delivering our solutions to customers,” said Christian Morin, Vice President Product Engineering and Chief Security Officer at Genetec. “We are starting with video, but Streamvault Edge will soon evolve to power a broader range of capabilities from access control to advanced operations technologies.”
A connected Linux-based appliance, Streamvault Edge has little to no impact on IT resources and can be easily installed and configured by non-specialised technicians. It offers the simplicity of the cloud for easy connectivity, configuration/deployment, scalability, maintenance and updates, regardless of where sensor data is archived.
For systems integrators, Streamvault Edge offers an ideal solution to help modernise existing installations and extend the useful life of legacy equipment while future-proofing new infrastructure.
Streamvault Edge will be available worldwide from the Genetec network of authorised partners.
