PROMISE VessRAID Chosen by Johnson Controls for Major Surveillance Project in Iraq

PROMISE VessRAID Chosen by Johnson Controls for Major Surveillance Project in 
Over 40 VessRAID External Storage Units Deployed as Part of New
Security Platform From Baghdad International Airport to the City
(Marketwired) -- 11/07/13 --  Johnson Controls Inc. (JCI) is trusted
around the world to deliver integrated security solutions designed
specifically to meet the requirements of the customer. When JCI was
approached to create a new security platform for the Baghdad
International Airport, the main route to the airport and the city
center, it was imperative to select the highest quality products from
the world's premier manufacturers. Requiring a storage solution with
a high level of flexibility which offered high-bandwidth and low
latency for the video recorded by over 400 cameras, JCI turned to
PROMISE Technology. 
PROMISE is the developer of high-performance storage solutions
optimized for video surveillance applications. PROMISE's surveillance
solutions include the VessRAID external storage series, the family of
products which deliver massive capacity and throughput designed for
mid-size to large scale surveillance deployments. 
Faced with storing data from over 400 cameras as part of the security
project to observe and control the traffic flow from Baghdad
International Airport to Baghdad's city center, JCI deployed more
than 40 VessRAID systems in the installation, which includes more
than 20 servers and over 30 workstations. Bandwidth was a top
priority in order to avoid bottlenecks when concurrent video streams
were required at multiple workstations, and VessRAID has answered the
challenge by delivering reliable throughput in addition to massive
capacity to store data for an extended period of time. Plus, VessRAID
offered a high level of flexibility which helped reduce the
complexity of the installation and shortened the engineering stage of
the project. 
"JCI is trusted by companies around the world to deliver solutions
that solve challenges customers face in even the most demanding
environments," said Bilsay Cıtak, senior sales engineer, Johnson
Controls Inc. "The video surveillance project in Baghdad was an
important part of rebuilding the infrastructure of the city, whi
not only ensures the security of the environment but also helps
manage the flow of traffic. VessRAID delivered the performance,
flexibility and capacity the project required in a storage system
that was more cost-effective than competing solutions." 
"PROMISE is very excited to be part of the surveillance project in
Baghdad which will safeguard the people of Iraq and help improve the
efficiency of the major transportation channels," said John van den
Elzen, managing director of PROMISE Technology EMEA. "JCI is one of
the leading companies in the world building some of the most advanced
solutions in the security industry and it is a testament to the
design and quality of VessRAID that it delivered the flexibility and
performance to excel in this project."
