Qognify Introduces VisionHub Qblock Converged Infrastructure for the Surveillance Industry

16 Mar 2017

Built on industry-leading Dell EMC technology, it is the security market’s most reliable, enterprise class, turnkey VMS Network Attached Storage (NAS) solution providing a one-stop-shop for centralized video data management

Qognify, the leader in big data solutions for physical security and operations, today announced the launch of Qblock. Qblock is a unique offering built on industry’s leading technology from Dell EMC to address the growing need for securely and efficiently storing critical video data. The Qblock converged infrastructure is designed specifically for the surveillance industry, optimized with Qognify’s state-of-the-art video management solution. Qblock meets the needs of clients who have expanded surveillance environments and/or critical video data with storage intense requirements.  This integrated solution can scale to support thousands of video channels with easy, centralized management, avoiding complex storage migrations.

Qblock combines the power of Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, Dell EMC Isilon storage and Qognify’s VisionHub Video Management Solution to create a best-of-breed, large-scale solution. As storage requirements are rapidly increasing, the need for a turnkey solution that is easy to deploy and manage has become a market necessity.  VisionHub Qblock uniquely addresses this need, allowing users to scale their solution as much as required, without having to re-architect it.

Qblock is now offered to the market by Qognify to meet the needs of both Security and IT in a single solution. Support for the solution and all its components is provided from a single point of contact. “Based on the surveillance market’s trajectory, the need for a reliable, scalable, and simple video storage solution was clear. Coupled with our leading video storage management capabilities and Dell EMC technology, we are delivering a truly unique solution that addresses the stringent IT requirements from a VMS solution,” commented Moti Shabtai, CEO & President of Qognify. “We’re proud to be the leading Video Management Solution provider offering a solution based on Isilon scale-out network attached storage (NAS) platform.”

For security conscious organizations, the loss of video is unacceptable, making high availability and fault tolerance critical. Qblock responds to this need by reducing failover time and increasing fault tolerance beyond typical RAID storage configurations. “Qblock is ideal for storage-savvy organizations that understand their needs will only increase, and wish to avoid complex migrations,” said Ken Mills, General Manager & Chief Technology Officer, Surveillance and Security, Dell EMC. “The powerful combination of market-leading technologies allows organizations to future-proof their surveillance storage solution. Dell EMC is proud to collaborate with Qognify to address this growing market need.”
