New Quantum Application Server Brings Greater Versatility for VMS And Analytic Applications In Surveillance Environments

QUANTUM_LOGO_IT-VOICEQuantum  announced Xcellis™ Application Director, a new addition to its surveillance and security solution family which enables customers to run video management systems (VMS) or analytic applications with directly attached storage. With the new server, these applications can connect directly to Quantum’s QXS™ Series disk storage or as clients in an Xcellis environment powered by Quantum’s industry-leading StorNext® data management platform. As a result, users can access data without adding to network traffic for a more efficient video surveillance infrastructure, regardless of scope.
By incorporating Xcellis Application Director into a video surveillance solution, Quantum offers the unique ability to scale from simple environments with fewer than 50 cameras to complex infrastructures integrating more than 10,000 cameras, as well as other distinct advantages:

  • Large Environments: Because Xcellis is powered by StorNext, Application Director users can meet the most demanding performance requirements, scale to hundreds of petabytes and integrate easily into existing video surveillance workflows.

  • Small Environments: When coupled with QXS-3 Series, QXS-4 Series or QXS-6 Series disk storage, Xcellis Application Director offers a powerful solution enabling small camera count environments to achieve the same data management efficiencies as larger deployments. As an implementation grows, it also provides the flexibility to evolve into a tiered environment.

A Design That Anticipates Future Growth

Xcellis Application Director offers multiple methods of connecting to storage for efficient data management. This versatile approach allows smaller systems to directly attach to QXS storage systems and enables the redeployment of assets as the infrastructure changes, unlike other appliance-based solutions. As these smaller installations expand capacity they can connect their Xcellis Application Director to a StorNext-based environment. The QXS hardware can later be integrated as part of a StorNext infrastructure, allowing users to take advantage of a multi-tier storage approach utilizing low-cost high-capacity disk, file-based tape, or cloud as a security infrastructure grows, and avoiding a complete forklift upgrade.

Lenovo’s recently unveiled Vibe K5 smartphone

Lenovo’s recently unveiled Vibe K5 smartphone will be available via its first open sale from Monday. Interested consumers can purchase the Lenovo Vibe K5 in open sale via Amazon India, which no longer requires users to register in advance.The Chinese company announced the open sale for the Vibe K5 last week and also revealed that it sold over 100,000 units of the smartphone across two flash sales, with 48,500 units sold in the last sale. Lenovo India also says that it is ramping up the production of the Vibe K5 to meet demand in the country.The Lenovo Vibe K5 is a dual-SIM (Micro-SIM cards) smartphone that was first unveiled back at MWC 2016 alongside the Vibe K5 Plus. The Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus however made it to India in March at Rs. 8,499.To refresh on the specifications of the Lenovo Vibe K5, it features a 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) display and is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 415 processor clocked at 1.4GHz paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage.

Samsung is expected to launch the next Note offering on August 2

Samsung is expected to launch the next Note offering on August 2, but before that happens, leaks have been aplenty. Now, renders of the Galaxy Note 7 have been spotted revealing the different colour options the phablet is expected to release in.The renders come from noted tipster Evan Blass, and they give us a glimpse of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 from the front and the back. He claims that the phablet will be available in Black Onyx, Silver Titanium, and Blue Coral colour variants. Notably, there is no Gold colour option mentioned by the tipster.The image reiterates the dual-edged display tipped to be coming back with the Galaxy Note 7. Samsunghad ditched the Edge variant with the Galaxy Note 5 due to S Pen issues, but it looks to have sorted it out and is set to release an Edge variant this year. So much so that Samsung is expected to ditch the flat screen variant altogether, and only release the dual-edged Samsung Galaxy S7.The image also testifies to the heavily rumoured iris scanner at the front. The additional sensors above the display screen hints at the scanner integration – a first on a Samsung smartphone. The iris scanner will essentially give users the ability to unlock their smartphone just by looking at it.A separate leak spotted first by Sammobile indicates that the Galaxy Note 7 may come with a 6-inch display. The report cites a Zauba listing which shows a model number SM-N930R4 with 6-inch screen size. While the Galaxy Note 7 has previously been listed on the site with the model number SM-N930, this could just be an error from Zauba’s end. Another possibility could also be that Samsung is just testing a prototype, and the final Galaxy Note 7 will come with a 5.7-inch screen only. In any case, we recommend you to take this leak with a pinch of salt.Another leak from accessory maker Olixar has released a separate image of the Galaxy Note 7 hinting at the addition of the USB Type-C port. If this is true, it will be the first Samsung phablet to make the switch. The image again reiterates the iris scanner rumour.With this year’s phablet, the company is also skipping a numeral and naming the Galaxy Note 5successor – Galaxy Note 7. This move is apparently done by Samsung, to un-complicate things for the customer. While the flagship Galaxy S series released the Galaxy S7 this year, the company thinks that users would think that the Galaxy Note 6 would confuse them, and make them presume that it was launched last year.Past rumours hint at a new Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow-based TouchWiz ‘Grace’ UX. The Galaxy Note 7 is expected to optimise its hardware in a battery-efficient manner, so much so that the phablet is expected to last for up to 20 hours of video playback with the brightness levels at maximum. It is expected to come with a QHD Super Amoled display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 or Exynos 8893 SoC, and 6GB of RAM. Storage options will be at 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB (with option to expand as well). Additionally, there is expected to be a 12-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front camera, and a 3600mAh battery on the phablet.
