Scale Computing, the market leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, today announced its edge video surveillance solutions have been extended to include cloud video surveillance storage with Wasabi Surveillance Cloud and the Intel® NUC Enterprise Edge Compute Built with Scale Computing. Together, Scale Computing and Wasabi deliver an edge to cloud surveillance solution that is easy to use, minimizes disruption, and allows access to video as usual, and when paired with the Intel EEC customers have a bottomless-storage, edge to cloud appliance. The company also announced its participation at ISC West in Las Vegas this week.
"Video and AI are going through a massive transformation, creating an opportunity for the industry to leverage edge technologies from companies like Scale Computing and Wasabi that enable better performance, agility, choice, and cost," said Kasia Hanson, Global Director, Video, Safety & Security Sales at Intel. "As the video surveillance and security markets continue to grow rapidly, shifting from analog video cameras, CCTV, and proprietary recording appliances to digital IP-based cameras, the demand for near real-time response is driving this need for computing power at the edge of a network. By combining the power of Intel® NUC EEC with the simplicity and reliability of Scale Computing HyperCore software, organizations have an efficient, scalable, and comprehensive edge computing solution."
"Organizations are making significant technology investments in video surveillance, and Wasabi Surveillance Cloud is a first-of-its-kind solution offered by a cloud provider that enables these organizations to offload video surveillance footage from their local storage environment directly to the cloud without ever running out of capacity," said David Boland, VP of Cloud Strategy at Wasabi. "This 'bottomless' approach to video storage, combined with Scale Computing, is vital for the surveillance industry as it struggles to manage enormous amounts of video in high resolution environments and increasingly large file sizes tied to surveillance."
Scale Computing and Wasabi combine industry-leading, on-premises edge computing with easy-to-use cloud data retention and archival to create the agile, hybrid-cloud environment needed today. With seamless integration with all major VMS providers inside of Wasabi Surveillance Cloud, Scale Computing is now able to expand to organizations' needs for critical video surveillance at the edge to the cloud.
"We're seeing a lot of security organizations and businesses beginning to adopt cloud storage as a way to reduce video storage complexity and costs. As they do so, one of the main obstacles that they face is converting the file-based format to a cloud object storage format," said Scott Loughmiller, Chief Product Officer and co-founder of Scale Computing. "Organizations can now combine on-premises Scale Computing clusters and Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage, allowing recent video to be stored locally at the edge until it's moved to the cloud where it can be kept for as long as the organization needs it."

Stratus Technologies | February 07, 2023
On February 6, 2023, Stratus Technologies, Inc. (Stratus), an SGH company and a pioneer in protected, simplified, and autonomous Edge Computing platforms announced that it will display its Edge Computing platforms and pre-validated control architectures, made with Rockwell Automation and Schneider Electric, at the 27th annual ARC Industry Leadership Forum from February 6–9, in Orlando, Florida.
The subject of this year's conference is energy transition, driving sustainability and performance through digitalization. During the Oil & Gas Transformation session, Stratus and customer Streamline Innovations will present on sustainable gas treating solutions.
Stratus will showcase its Edge Computing platforms and solutions at booth #34, including:
Stratus ztC Edge Platform - the second-generation Stratus ztC Edge platform integrates in-built fault tolerance and application virtualization in an easy-to-install, rugged design for the edge.
Stratus Edge Computing Experience (ECX) - This immersive environment enables IT and OT users to explore a broad range of Edge Computing application cases in industrial automation, allowing users to extend edge automation and exploit essential data for insight using easy, secure, autonomous Edge Computing.
Edge Analytics - The IoT analytics software from Litmus on the Stratus Edge 110i and the second-gen Stratus ztC Edge 200i exhibits predictive maintenance, condition-based monitoring, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. The partnership shows a simple, secure, autonomous solution for deploying analytics for any MES, SCADA, or IoT software at edge locations in order to overcome network bandwidth, latency, and risk of downtime.
Stratus will also highlight the following to illustrate how pre-validated and tested architectures may reduce engineering time, enable quick deployment, and simplify OT and IT management:
PlantPAx® Solution-in-a-Box from Rockwell Automation - A jointly-tested process control architecture running on ztC Edge to facilitate the deployment of small to medium-sized distributed control systems (DCS) that need less than 5,000 I/Os at edge locations.
Schneider Electric EcoStruxure™ Micro Data Center with Stratus ftServer® Platform - Designed for edge environments, it combines virtualization, fault tolerance, physical protection and smart uninterrupted power. These pre-validated designs are ideal for Systems Integrators since they save 40% in field engineering work and 20% in time-to-deployment.
