Video Storage Solutions, a BCD company, recently signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Ingram Micro Inc. to resell its Video Storage Solutions (VSS) IP Video Recording Servers to their channel partners throughout the United States.
“The SMB market represents a significant growth opportunity for channel partners who specialize in network video solutions and services,” says Tom Burns, Director, Ingram Micro Physical Security Business Unit, North America. “We’re pleased to extend our network video solutions portfolio and offer the VSS line and entire catalog of purpose-built surveillance appliances.”
Available in both Tower and Rack-Mount configurations, these value-priced recording appliances come standard with up to 48TB of video-optimized 6G SAS storage. All units include a five-year HP on-site warranty. In addition to the high-performance hardware, VSS systems also ship standard with either Axis Camera Station or Milestone software licenses pre-loaded and ready to deploy. “We were looking to manufacture a unit that is as simple to use as a DVR,” states Tom Yeargin, VSS’ National Sales Manager. “The security customer just wants to plug his cameras in and go, just like the old days. Of course, with much more sophisticated technology on the inside.”
Yeargin added: “When we looked at the target market for the VSS platform, Ingram Micro’s Physical Security business unit was a perfect fit. They have forged great relationships and are a trusted advisor to help their IT resellers and emerging growth customers make the transformation into IP video surveillance. The wide range of VSS systems will both enhance and complement Ingram Micro’s existing line of security products.”
