12 Sep BCD Partners with Tiger Technology to deliver Zero-loss Failover for Milestone XProtect
BCD, a global leader in purpose-built video data infrastructure solutions, has announced they are partnering with Tiger Technology to provide Surveillance HA, an on-premises zero-loss failover solution for Milestone XProtect ® appliances.
This solution utilises Tiger Technology’s plug-in integrated with BCD’s trusted hardware to cluster two servers together to detect failover and ensure that when one server fails, another is ready to bridge the data gap and continue recording. This solution offers three different configurations to provide users with maximum flexibility, depending on the desired functionality.
Brent Edmunds, CEO of Stone Security, explained the benefits he has found. He said: “As a Milestone Premier Partner, we have deployed numerous projects using Tiger Technology and have deployed BCD hardware for the last 10 years. The announcement of their official partnership to provide Surveillance HA will allow us to provide a higher level of service and system reliability ensuring our clients are getting Milestone certified technologies preconfigured and proven to work right out of the box.”
A Milestone technology partner since 2009, BCD first announced its partnership with Tiger Technology in 2021 as it released the Harmonize Bridge plug-in for hybrid cloud storage capabilities. Along with a seamless adoption of hybrid cloud storage that works with any private or public cloud provider, this solution also offered immediate disaster recovery for data stored through the cloud. Now, that same level of data protection is being offered for on-premises hardware to ensure that whether your data is on-site or in the cloud, users never lose a single second of critical video data.
Kevin Domene, BCD Business Development Manager and former Milestone CBM, said: “I have watched countless Milestone resellers attempt to provide a seamless failover and disaster recovery solutions as part of their project. Each time there are always unforeseen challenges, costing them hefty amounts or resource allocation while eroding their project’s margin. BCD and Tiger Technology have risen to the challenge by partnering to provide an out of the box solution with proven Milestone certified technologies to meet the increasing demand for these mission critical systems. Whether you are replicating a Management Server or setting up failover on numerous Recording Servers, BCD and Tiger Technology can provide the high availability design solution your clients require.”
