IBM’s Storwize and Tiger Bridge Are Milestone Certified Solutions


Scalable and cost-effective video data storage is tested and documented with XProtect

Copenhagen – September 14, 2017. Milestone Systems, the global leader in open platform IP video management software (VMS), has completed the Milestone Solution Certification of IBM’s Storwize and Tiger Bridge, a cost-effective online data storage system.

Important considerations for storing huge volumes of video archives include simplicity, scalability and affordability. IBM Storage, including IBM Storwize systems, provide a cost-effective platform for online storage. Tiger Bridge provides a secure and flexible connector for transparent data movement between the local IBM Storage systems and cloud storage residing either locally, in a hybrid configuration or in a public/government cloud environment.

This validated and optimized solution allows organizations to better match their storage technology with their data lifecycle in order to realize substantial costs savings.

Key features

  • Simplifies storage allocation and tiering while enabling easy growth with IBM Cloud Object Storage
  • Minimizes online storage requirements by using advanced data replication and space reclamation capabilities from Tiger Technology
  • Enables Milestone XProtect recording server attachment to IBM Cloud Object Storage without a gateway server
  • Allows both CAPEX or OPEX storage pricing models for archive and performance storage
  • Enables an easy, smooth transition to the cloud: start with an on-premise storage solution and then migrate to the cloud with no changes to the Milestone environment

”Customers are looking for flexibility in their storage options. This solution allows the customer to make informed business choices regarding where and how to store their data, without the complexity of external gateways or converters. This also protects the ’chain of custody’ of their data because external gateways and tamper risk points are removed from the solution. The additional benefit of this solution is that customers can choose to move to a cloud-centric solution model at their own pace without disruption to the existing infrastructure.” Dave Taylor, Executive Architect IBM Software Defined Infrastructure Solutions

”The flexibility of putting your storage in a variety of different locations, on-premise or cloud, and on a variety of different media really gives our customers a lot of valuable choices,” Reinier Tuinzing, Strategic Alliances Manager – Americas, Milestone Systems.
