DDN's Web Object Scaler (WOS) Cloud Storage Awarded Top Prize at ISC West 2011

ISC West Award Recognizes the Critical Role Massively Scalable Cloud Storage Plays in Video Surveillance Industry

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - April 7, 2011) -  DataDirect Networks (DDN), the world's largest privately-held information storage company, today announced that Web Object Scaler (WOS), DDN's massively scalable cloud storage solution, won the New Product Showcase Award at the International Security Conference (ISC), the leading event for the security industry.

"We are entering a new age in video surveillance, an age where we will be able to predict and react to ongoing threats and safety concerns, as opposed to investigating them after the harm has already been done," said Alex Bouzari, DDN CEO. "The future of video surveillance is being enabled by new and innovative software tools and devices. We are grateful to the ISC West judges for recognizing that DDN's WOS cloud and object management software is helping create a better and safer world through technology."

WOS cloud storage infrastructure provides unprecedented levels of speed, replication, data integrity and reliability to store, manage and access surveillance video. With WOS cloud storage, customers can greatly simplify their video surveillance systems by eliminating network video recorders and having IP cameras record directly to the cloud. This reduces cost and complexity and, with the inherent versatility of WOS, allows multiple monitoring centers to have access to the video archive at the same time. WOS also provides complete failover and disaster recovery capability, which is critical for sensitive security video data.
