Video Surveillance

The most comprehensive IT infrastructure solution
for the modern security and surveillance ecosystem

Demand for video surveillance technology is growing rapidly. More than just a means to “catch the bad guy,” video is a strategic business tool used to reduce organizational risk and improve financial returns. Modern high definition IP video surveillance systems generate massive amounts of critical, sensitive data. Capturing, protecting and mobilizing this data is paramount, and a very challenging task for traditional IT infrastructure.

Pivot3’s hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) offers software-defined SAN storage and server infrastructure in cost-effective, off-the-shelf server hardware. Purpose-built for demanding, data-intensive video surveillance workloads, Pivot3 provides the highest levels of performance, resiliency and availability so critical video surveillance data is stored without loss, protected from any failures and always available when and where it is needed most.

With data from over one million cameras protected in 53 countries, Pivot3 delivers enterprise-class video surveillance infrastructure in an easy to manage, simple to deploy, scale-out appliance model and serves major customers in demanding video environments including transportation, government, gaming, education, manufacturing, hospitality and healthcare.

Use Cases


Airports, seaports and railways have become top priority surveillance upgrade sites as authorities look to apply the latest technologies to meet strict security objectives.

Law Enforcement

Video surveillance has become a proven tool in monitoring, analyzing and even preventing criminal activity. Recent developments in retention policies increase the need for storage efficiency and availability.


Security is an important issue for governments at all levels around the world.  IP video surveillance has proven to be an effective preventative tool to create safer and more secure environments within public areas.


Casinos frequently deploy hundreds or thousands of cameras to meet stringent gaming regulations and to ensure the safety and protection of employees and visitors. Gaming applications have been at the forefront of new technology adoption such as megapixel cameras, which can drive requirements for petabytes of storage and hundreds of servers.


The retail market is one of the fastest growing market segments in the physical security space. Newer digital surveillance systems reduce liability and shrinkage by providing more reliable video retention and faster access to relevant saved video.


From secure campuses to federal regulations and data retention mandates, institutions are increasingly modernizing their IT infrastructure to ensure compliance and keep their students safe.
