Synergy 3 Receives Dell EMC Partner Validation for Storage Compatibility
01 March 2017
Global surveillance business Synectics has announced that its Synergy 3 command and control software is certified as fully compatible with Dell EMC storage solutions.
The certification ‒ achieved by meeting strict performance criteria specified and tested by EMC’s dedicated Surveillance Validation Labs ‒ means organizations using an EMC storage area network (SAN) solution can adopt Synergy 3 as their chosen digital recording and video management solution without needing to implement a separate, dedicated surveillance storage depository.
Synergy 3 is a flexible, open architecture software platform that enables video, alarms and events, third party subsystems, transactional and process data to be monitored, managed and recorded from a single, unified interface.
Its third party integration capabilities and uncapped scalability make it a leading solution for large-scale, complex environments with demanding security and surveillance needs in sectors such as Oil & Gas, Critical Infrastructure and Transport.
Commenting on the partnership, Synectics’ Product Manager, Sean Kettlewood, said: “Synergy 3’s ability to unify, monitor and make sense of disparate streams of mission critical data, ensures it meets the demands of organizations that need to achieve constant situational awareness for improved security, safety and efficiency. Those customers therefore require a high capacity, reliable and robust data storage solution.
“For many of our customers, the preference is to source their storage requirements from Synectics as part of a complete end-to-end solution. As a strong industry advocate of interoperability, we also want to make sure that our surveillance solutions are compatible with best-of-breed storage providers such as Dell EMC.
“Their partner validation program is one of the most rigorous and respected in the industry and we have worked closely with Dell EMC2 to ensure that every aspect of our respective solutions is compatible.”
For further information and insight into storage for large-scale surveillance systems, Synectics has produced a dedicated white paper on storage area networks.
