Trenton City and Trenton Police Department select Pivot3 clustered storage

To support two different video surveillance projects

By CBR Staff Writer

Pivot3, a provider of high-definition storage services, has announced that both the city of Trenton and the Trenton Police Department in New Jersey are using Pivot3 clustered storage to support two different video surveillance projects.

Pivot3 said that the implementation illustrates the use of open systems, where two city environments with different goals and different video software vendors benefit from the availability, performance and management of centralized Pivot3 High-Definition Storage.

At the Trenton Hall, goal was to provide instant access 30 days of stored video from IP cameras used for general facilities security. The data storage requirements prompted the City to look for a scalable storage system that provides fast access at a cost point that met both the mandated capacity requirements and the internal budget.

The company also said that the Pivot3 High-Definition Storage system provides high availability by clustering storage appliances together to meet the availability, performance and capacity needs of the surveillance user.

According to the company, the system protects data for the reliability environments and can be configured and installed without special training, because it is based on well-known server and network standards. This standards-based approach allows Pivot3 storage to work as an open-systems component with many different camera, software and service providers.

Damron, director of IT at the city of Trenton, said: Pivot3 solved that issue and gave us a simple path to add more cameras and storage in the near future. Also, because the storage can work with many different applications and cameras, I was able to introduce the Pivot3 solution to the Trenton Police Department, where we shared a common need for scalable storage, even though our systems are designed to meet different goals.
