The Pivot3 HardBank is the version of the award-winning MiniBank product ideal for military, air-constrained and mobile applications that have poor ventilation, high particulate matter or heavy vibration. The HardBank is now upgraded with advanced processors that boost system performance by 20 percent and incorporates new Smartfan Technology to reduce noise by up to 50 percent.
The HardBank individually handles up to 70 cameras with 4-8TB of RAID storage supporting VMS applications from more than 30 open systems partners. HardBanks are easily configured to support larger camera counts of up to 48TB of shared SAN storage with embedded VMS failover protection. The unique approach of combining virtual servers with high-availability shared storage eliminates the need for separate physical servers, reducing acquisition and operating costs by up to 40 percent.
The appliance approach also lets users dynamically expand over time without affecting existing infrastructure. The HardBank will be on display at ISC West 2011 at booth #5053. For more information on this product and other Pivot3 platforms, visit www.pivot3.com.
