Intransa Introduces Shared, Scalable and Simple Next Generation IP Video Storage

New Video Surveillance Management Tool for Rapid Storage Setup Reduces Costs and Integration

The Intransa EdgeBlock M12 is an ideal platform for recording directly from IP-enabled surveillance cameras or through standard DVRs and NVRs. Perfect for tight spaces, the 2U rack-sized EdgeBlock offers up to 12TB of hot-swap disk drives, advanced RAID 0, 1, 5, 6 and 10 protection, and optional high availability configurations. DVRs and NVRs now have the ability to share scalable storage improving overall utilization and virtualization. With inexpensive modular upgrades the EdgeBlock M12 can scale to 84TB in just 14U and supports high capacity, low cost SATA and high performance SAS IT-grade disk drives.

The M12 series supports StorStac BuildingBlock and 1GbE IP infrastructures in addition to PerformanceBlock 10GbE deployments. Built on a modular system the EdgeBlock can grow into a BuildingBlock or PerformanceBlock systems without forklift upgrades, since all use the same modules, and scale from 4 to 1,500TB.

The M12 joins the customer-proven Intransa M15 storage module series, which offers up to 15TB in a 3U enclosure and continues to deliver the best price per terabyte of any shared, scalable external IP storage in the industry.

Intransa's StorStac Systems have garnered industry awards since their introduction in 2007. And, the new EdgeBlock M12 is now in consideration for a Security Industry Association New Product Showcase award at ISC West. Intransa IP storage supports integration with common video management system software from StorAlliance Technology partners including AMAG Technology, Inc., Cisco Systems, Genetec Inc., JDS Digital Security Systems, Milestone Systems, On-Net Surveillance Systems Inc. (OnSSI), VideoNEXT and VideoProtein, as well as integration with Computer Network Limited (CNL) and IndigoVision PLC solutions.


The new StorStac software features, including the VSA toolset, are included in all new Intransa StorStac Systems, as well as field-installable upgrades for existing customer systems under both the StorWarranty or StorSupport extended coverage programs.

EdgeBlock, BuildingBlock and PerformanceBlock equipped with either the M12 or M15 module options are immediately available exclusively through Intransa StorPartner security and systems integrators worldwide.
