IRVINE, Calif.–

DiscoverIT Solutions (DiscoverIT), a solution provider that helps to reduce complexity within an IT infrastructure and Gold Level Member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced it has implemented a video surveillance management solution for the City of Oceanside’s Las Salinas Waste Water Treatment Plant.

City of Oceanside’s Las Salinas Water Treatment Plant needed to replace aging infrastructure and solve the problem of retention, cost of storage, and easy search and access.

“The video surveillance solution, including the video storage component, as offered by DiscoverIT delivered the scalability, ease-of-use, and long-term retention our City needed. A number of our City Departments are dealing with various needs of the video surveillance system and the DiscoverIT offering is providing us the integrated solution we need to support our various Department needs,” stated Dave Riha, Senior Information Systems Analyst, City of Oceanside, CA.

DiscoverIT Solutions collaborated with Oracle and SoleraTec to deliver an integrated solution with a base unit and four expansion modules providing 375 terabytes of capacity, an Oracle Server X5-2, SoleraTec’s Phoenix RSM Software, and six Arecont IP cameras.

Oracle storage for video surveillance archiving provides an efficient, high-performance architecture that maximizes the value of digital video surveillance by allowing for longer retention times while simultaneously reducing the cost of storage. Together, the reliability of Oracle servers, storage, and LTO libraries provides a level of stability and dependability required by 24/7 video surveillance operations. Oracle’s scalable hardware platform also allows for high-resolution, megapixel IP cameras and video retention storage on a “pay-as-you-grow” basis.

“The SoleraTec Phoenix RSM solution with Oracle’s StorageTek tape storage allows the City of Oceanside to retain one year’s worth of video at a low cost when compared to a disk-only configuration,” said Karena Angell, Chief Technologist at DiscoverIT. “Phoenix RSM was designed to support LTO tape as an active tier of storage. This gives the customer instant access to their video when needed at a TCO lower than an all disk solution ”

Phoenix RSM is a professional grade Video Management Solution that manages multiple tiers of storage resources. It can capture video on a traditional hard disk drive and then move it to less expensive storage devices such as near-line and offline digital tape libraries.

When integrating multiple storage tiers to expand video retention there are cost savings in contrast to the high price for hard disk only based storage solutions. Not only is near-line/offline storage less expensive, it can be more durable and kept for decades while retaining video quality.
DiscoverIT continues to work with cities, counties, police departments, and district attorney’s offices to help manage video from body worn, in-car, interview room and fixed cameras with low storage cost.
