CUPERTINO, CA and JACKSONVILLE, IL – December 13, 2011 – Intransa, the VideoAppliance Company, announced today that the Morgan County Housing Authority is the 2,000th customer to deploy an Intransa physical security platform. First introduced in mid-2009, Intransa’s award-winning server and storage platforms have been installed in a wide range of video surveillance, access control, video analytics and PSIM projects in municipal surveillance, infrastructure protection, education, medical, law enforcement, retail, transportation and other critical security environments.

"We are extremely proud of the rapid and continued success that Intransa platforms have seen in the security marketplace," said Tom O’Leary, vice president worldwide sales, Intransa. "The 2,000th customer milestone is an achievement that excites our entire partner ecosystem and ensures our continued commitment to customer satisfaction from project inception through ongoing operational support."

Morgan County Housing Authority chose an Intransa Enterprise VDMR solution to provide a video optimized server and storage infrastructure for its latest video surveillance deployment. With the Intransa platform, the Housing Authority is now able to record increased amounts of high quality video without modification or risk of lost video frames all while leveraging its standard HP data center grade storage, according to Novanis IT Solutions.

As the only HP Enterprise storage partner in central Illinois Novanis is experienced in server consolidation, virtualization, network design and implementation, desktop deployment, application development and post-sales support solutions.

"With Intransa, Morgan County Housing Authority’s investment in HP enterprise storage can be efficiently used for storing video without requiring the IT team to modify their data center operations for the unique challenges of physical security," said Walter Meek, director of business development, Novanis. "Intransa’s experience and knowledge gained through the installation of thousands of security systems offers a significant decrease in project risk and both initial and ongoing cost for the customer."

Intransa platforms eliminate the risk of untested servers and storage when deployed for physical security needs, and shrink both complexity and operational challenges for significant initial and ongoing savings. Each platform leverages the power of Intransa’s patented and patent-pending Video and Data Management & Retention (VDMR) software technology.
