Iomega Network Storage with Axis Video Hosting System
Iomega StorCenter network storage products have integrated the Axis Video Hosting System (AVHS), jointly developed with Axis Communications, the market leader in network video. The integrated AVHS client enables customers to store video files locally at megapixel resolution and high frame reates while supporting simultaneously streaming or batch uploading of video data to a secure off-site storage facility developed by their hosting provider.
Iomega StorCenter network storage devices with AVHS are designed for professional-level video surveillance with fast onsite camera deployments, which can be especially beneficial for organizations with many locations, such as franchises and bank branches.
The combination of Iomega StorCenter devices and Axis network cameras allows customers to select different recording and retention policies for both on-site and off-site video files, and also allows remote access for monitoring and configuration from any web browser. The solution enables businesses to leverage the power and cost-effectiveness of cloud services. Hosted video customers pay for only the storage they need, allowing them to grow their infrastructure without requiring additional capital investment. Deployment times will also be greatly reduced due to limited infrastructure requirements.
AVHS-enabled Iomega StorCenter network storage devices include the double-drive desktop Iomega StorCenter ix2-200 Cloud Edition NAS unit, which ships with up to 6TB* of networked storage capacity, the four-drive desktop Iomega StorCenter ix4-200d Cloud Edition, with up to 12TB of storage capacity; additionally, the new four-drive desktop Iomega StorCenter px4-300d and six-drive px6-300d, with up to 18TB of storage. There are also StorCenter rackmount models with the embedded AVHS client that offer up to 38TB of storage capacity.
