Easier security with SAMS

Easier security with SAMS

EMC has introduced a surveillance analysis and management solution (SAMS), a storage archive that combines hardware and software to store data from security cameras and access control systems.

Clive Gold, EMC product manager, says his company is looking for specialist resellers, typically independent software developers. “We’re already striking up partnerships in the region and some of these are now active,” he says.

Gold says SAMS means that video and data from surveillance equipment, either digital or analogue, can be stored and accessed quickly and adds that the recent spate of bombings is a key driver for the technology.

“But it’s more than that. Finally the technology and capability are there to make this happen.”

The service will be delivered through EMC authorised services network partners and security integrators.

SAMS consists of EMC’s Clariion storage and its Centera content system and Gold says it offers robust tools for video capture, load-balancing network bandwidth and content management.

Meanwhile, the company has also updated its Clariion range with four new models. Gold says this comes after looking at how customers are using the product.

“We constantly find new ways to improve how it works. For example, now there is the option to run it off batteries or a DC power supply.”

There is no pricing difference in the upgraded model and Gold says existing customers can mix and match if they are running the current generation of Clariion.

“Anyone running 100plus drives might want to look at this technology. It’s the new software that makes this so exciting, not the hardware.”
