BCD Video & Wasabi collaborate on versatile storage

Buffalo Grove, Il

BCD Video, a leader in video data infrastructure, has partnered with Wasabi, the hot cloud storage company for video surveillance storage in the cloud. In an industry moving rapidly toward a hybrid-cloud model, this partnership expands the ability for both manufacturers to offer their customers a complete package.

With BCD Video’s purpose-built, on-premises storage options and Wasabi’s competitive hot cloud storage solutions, together, these two companies are able to deliver a hybrid cloud solution that takes advantage of existing infrastructure, as well as next-generation cloud storage technology, to secure high volumes of video efficiently and affordably.

“We are thrilled about the opportunities this partnership will open up,” said Jeff Burgess, CEO at BCD International. “Wasabi’s cloud technology is already optimised for the video surveillance cloud storage space, which makes it a perfect extension for our purpose-built on-premises devices — working together is a no-brainer.”

Building on more than two decades of experience manufacturing video appliances in the surveillance security market, BCD is committed to offering customers the best user experience and value. Marrying Wasabi hot cloud storage with BCD Video’s Harmonize Bridge enables BCD and video storage solutions (VSS) appliances to interact with Wasabi cloud storage and allows BCD to deliver on that commitment. According to the company, with a cloud storage option that is one-fifth the price and faster than much of the competition, with no additional egress fees or API request charges, Wasabi is a game-changing, leading-edge cloud technology provider. Together, these companies aim to move the industry forward.

“We see video surveillance storage requirements growing quickly and outpacing the capacities of on-premises storage alone. By adding affordable, high performance cloud storage to the equation with BCD’s on-premises storage, you get the best of both worlds,” said David Friend, CEO of Wasabi. “Wasabi has a goal to make cloud storage a simple commodity and utility, just like electricity, so together with BCD, we make video surveillance storage simple and affordable in high volumes.”

Because Wasabi’s cloud offering integrates with leading video surveillance vendors, customers can operate surveillance systems using anywhere from one to 1,000 cameras with varying storage needs, all with plenty of room to scale. Wasabi offers existing BCD customers flexibility as well, allowing users to use as much or as little cloud storage as works best for their system. Using cloud storage as part of surveillance solutions allows customers to take advantage of bottomless storage, while reducing the close and build-time required for hardware overhauls.
