PROMISE VessRAID Chosen by Johnson Controls for Major Surveillance Project in Iraq

Over 40 VessRAID External Storage Units Deployed as Part of New Security Platform From Baghdad International Airport to the City Center

HSINCHU, TAIWAN and SON, THE NETHERLANDS and MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 7, 2013) - Johnson Controls Inc. (JCI) is trusted around the world to deliver integrated security solutions designed specifically to meet the requirements of the customer. When JCI was approached to create a new security platform for the Baghdad International Airport, the main route to the airport and the city center, it was imperative to select the highest quality products from the world's premier manufacturers. Requiring a storage solution with a high level of flexibility which offered high-bandwidth and low latency for the video recorded by over 400 cameras, JCI turned to PROMISE Technology.

PROMISE is the developer of high-performance storage solutions optimized for video surveillance applications. PROMISE's surveillance solutions include the VessRAID external storage series, the family of products which deliver massive capacity and throughput designed for mid-size to large scale surveillance deployments.

Faced with storing data from over 400 cameras as part of the security project to observe and control the traffic flow from Baghdad International Airport to Baghdad's city center, JCI deployed more than 40 VessRAID systems in the installation, which includes more than 20 servers and over 30 workstations. Bandwidth was a top priority in order to avoid bottlenecks when concurrent video streams were required at multiple workstations, and VessRAID has answered the challenge by delivering reliable throughput in addition to massive capacity to store data for an extended period of time. Plus, VessRAID offered a high level of flexibility which helped reduce the complexity of the installation and shortened the engineering stage of the project.

"JCI is trusted by companies around the world to deliver solutions that solve challenges customers face in even the most demanding environments," said Bilsay Çıtak, senior sales engineer, Johnson Controls Inc. "The video surveillance project in Baghdad was an important part of rebuilding the infrastructure of the city, which not only ensures the security of the environment but also helps manage the flow of traffic. VessRAID delivered the performance, flexibility and capacity the project required in a storage system that was more cost-effective than competing solutions."

"PROMISE is very excited to be part of the surveillance project in Baghdad which will safeguard the people of Iraq and help improve the efficiency of the major transportation channels," said John van den Elzen, managing director of PROMISE Technology EMEA. "JCI is one of the leading companies in the world building some of the most advanced solutions in the security industry and it is a testament to the design and quality of VessRAID that it delivered the flexibility and performance to excel in this project."
