Vegas Valley Locking System Selects DNF Security Seahawk To Simplify Surveillance Management

Hayward, CA – February 09, 2010 – DNF Security, Dynamic Network Factory’s (DNF) mission critical IP Surveillance business unit, today announced that Vegas Valley Locking Systems is using the DNF Security Seahawk IP video storage system to help the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department monitor its two police substations. The decision to choose the Seahawk was based on its superior scalability, low total cost of ownership, and simple system management.

Vegas Valley requested a reliable surveillance system to support the police department’s multiple camera streams, meet data retention initiatives, and support future storage expansion. The advanced storage requirements prompted Vegas Valley to look for a storage solution that was compatible with its own server at a cost point that met both the mandated capacity requirements and the internal budget.

Vegas Valley felt the Seahawk’s external expansion support of up to 128TB, made it perfect for the future expansion needs of the police department. In addition, its open platform architecture was just right for connecting to the police department’s network, and supporting third party appliances such as its Arecont IP cameras, and Exacq video management software.

“The Seahawk was not only an easy installation for Vegas Valley, but a cost effective investment for the police department,” said Jonathan Harms, Security Specialist for Vegas Valley. “The system has required very minimal IT supervision or maintenance. When the department needs to review archived footage, they can simply retrieve the video in a matter of seconds.”

Additionally, the Seahawk is a high availability appliance that incorporates 16 hot-swappable SATA disk drives with support for external expansion. High performance features include redundant power supply and 5 bonded Gigabit iSCSI connections. SATA storage can be configured in RAID levels 0, 1, 3, 5, 6, 10 and JBOD to ensure data safety and continuous operation. Furthermore, the Seahawk IP storage migrates video data from storage that is directly attached to the video server to storage that is on the network, making it easy to decouple incoming video streams from archived video. Advanced alerts and system notifications featured on the Seahawk help the department check the system’s status. The Seahawk is designed to enhance performance without compromising retention, resolution, or functionality.

The Seahawk Series 1601 IP Storage system is available immediately. For more information regarding pricing or the Seahawk contact our sales team.
