press release

Munich – The new DSA E-Series (Digital Storage Appliance) represents the second generation of iSCSI Disk Arrays from Bosch. They are designed to meet the increasing needs of security installations to archive all digital video data in one place. The storage solution provides both high bandwidth and availability for large applications requiring HD quality video surveillance. Up to seven expansion shelves (12 x 2 TB HDD per expansion shelf) can be connected to one controller unit to reach 192Tb. Furthermore, two “redundant array of independent disks” (RAID) options – a technology that combines multiple disk drive components into one logical unit – are offered: RAID-5 protection for capacity-oriented environments and RAID-6 protection for availability-oriented environments that require a large number of disk shelf expansion units. This solution will reduce the costs for the data storage more than 30 percent. The units are available from September 2012.

HD IP cameras are important recent additions to the Bosch Video System portfolio. While these cameras enhance safety, security operators consequently have large storage requirements when archiving the resulting video data. The new DSA E-Series iSCSI Disk Arrays offer a single network solution that provides high levels of security, data protection and scalability, as well as simple video data management. The product is designed for medium to large applications, such as airports, train stations and shopping malls.

Storage management with video solutions software from Bosch
The Video Client and the Video Management System from Bosch allow central organization of all DSA E-Series arrays available in any one location within the network. Peripheral devices are readily accessible, and no additional software is necessary.
Depending on customers’ requirements, part-time storage administrators benefit from the ready-to-use intuitive interface and wizards, while full-time administrators can optimize system performance due to a range of optional extensive configuration possibilities.

Automatic e-mail alert notifications
Full support of the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) with MIB-II and custom MIBs is provided to customers. In case of component failure, SNMP e-mail alert notifications will be generated, providing information on which device is causing a problem and where.
