Upgrading Warehouse Video Surveillance
Vos Logistics is committed to going the extra mile by providing a safe environment for its warehouses and ensuring their customers receive excellent and professional service. In order to deliver on the core company values, Vos Logistics decided to upgrade their video surveillance solution at their warehouses to protect the millions of dollars of assets that it stores every day. Vos Logistics faced stricter security requirements and therefore wanted an IP video surveillance solution to leverage the latest innovations in security systems. Vos Logistics placed a premium on deploying a solution that streamlines configuration and management, is easy to use, and delivers consistent throughput and reliable data protection. Promise Technology's Vess A2000 Series NVR Appliances, Milestone XProtect® Video Management Software (VMS) and cameras from Axis Communications proved to be the answer for Vos Logistics as the solution offered unmatched quality, interoperability and performance for video surveillance of the company’s warehouse.
The PROMISE Solution
PROMISE Vess A2000 NVR storage appliances and Vess R2000 external storage solutions are specifically designed for the challenges customers face in surveillance environments and can scale to meet long-term data retention requirements. Vos Logistics deployed Vess A2210 NVR storage appliances with the video recorded from all of the Axis cameras at the warehouses to a large-scale centralized storage infrastructure.
Vess A2210 is a 2U 6-Bay NVR
Vess A2210 is a 2U 6-Bay NVR storage appliance with the latest Intel® I3 processor and PROMISE enterprise-grade raid engine. Vess A2210 delivers low latency performance with bandwidth optimized for capturing and storing live feeds of high resolution video from Vos Logistics’ megapixel cameras. Vess A2210 is optimized for video surveillance recording, playback, live view and archive I/O access with incredibly steady and reliable behavior that limits dropped frames.
Benefits Of The Vess A2000 Series
The Vess A2000 Series is certified by Milestone for interoperability with XProtect VMS as it was verified to not only offer an optimized user experience, but it delivered over four times the performance required for certification with XProtect VMS. Vos Logistics were able to deploy the PROMISE and Milestone solution with confidence that the system will record and archive video reliably.
The Vess A2000 Series supports the XProtect plug-in which allows Vos Logistics to manage Vess via the management user interface of XProtect - making it significantly more convenient for Vos Logistics to manage their storage.
The Vess and XProtect architecture is highly scalable and could support any size system, which means Vos Logistics can easily add more capacity with Vess R2000 external storage when they need more warehousing space. Additionally, since the NVR appliance and external storage are both developed by PROMISE, it is a very simple and smooth process for Vos Logistics to grow their solution along with their security needs.
“Every day we are faced with the need to protect millions of dollars of assets and infrastructure, so a reliable and optimized video surveillance solution is an absolute necessity,” said Toine van Gils, as Director Contract Logistics, Vos Logistics. “The solution we deployed from PROMISE, Milestone and Axis has been exactly what we needed and has performed beyond our expectations.”
