PSA TEC 2019

BUFFALO GROVE, IL – February 21, 2019 – Representing BCDVideo at TEC 2019, the premier annual education and networking event for professional systems integrators in the security market; Darren Giacomini, Director of Advanced Systems Architecture; joins industry leaders from across the country in Denver, Colorado as a conference speaker this March. 

Titled “How HCI Architecture is Disrupting the Video Surveillance Market,” Darren’s TEC 2019 session will take an intensive look at Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) and showcase BCDVideo’s latest hyperconverged solutions. During the discussion, Giacomini will evaluate currently available architecture, identify and examine key players in the emerging market and the critical role of systems builders, and discuss recommendations on how HCI will impact the physical security infrastructure business.

System integration leaders are challenged by their customers to deliver solutions around a broad set of use cases while meeting their demand for cost-effective, scalable network solutions in an ever-evolving marketplace. The newest architecture to be adopted into the video surveillance space is HCI, which utilizes modular compute/network/storage building block nodes, with direct-attached storage and a management layer on minimal, stackable hardware to deliver flexible and powerful building blocks under unified management.
