Hybrid Hyperconverged Infrastructure

Hybrid hyperconverged infrastructure (hHCI) provides a new powerful option for companies who want to increase
or scale one virtual hardware system without increasing or scaling another at the same time.

HCI Vs. hHCI

All data is stored on the physical nodes. VMs, operating systems, and databases are stored on the vSAN SSD drives, and the camera recordings are archived/stored on the vSAN rotational drives.

VMs, operating systems, and databases are stored on the vSAN SSD drives located on the physical nodes, and all camera recordings are offloaded and stored on the SAN.

Key Features

Virtualize hardware systems, protect against data loss, keep costs downs, and ensure valuable systems aren’t sitting idle.

REVOLV hybrid hyperconverged infrastructure (hHCI) is a valuable and powerful option for businesses.
  1. Lower Total Cost of Ownership
  2. Independent scalability
  3. Fast Disaster Recovery
  4. Shared Resources
  5. Centralized system management
  6. Purpose-built for safety and security

DEEPSTOR®

REVOLV comes in three different solutions: DEEPSTOR Lite, DEEPSTOR, and DEEPSTOR+. Each solution is built using servers from Dell, specialized switching from Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, powerful SAN storage from Dell EMC, and the latest hypervisor technology from VMware.

DEEPSTOR Lite

Allows a customer to gain initial access into the virtualized environment. It includes three nodes, two ALE switches, and one SAN. DEEPSTOR Lite includes either a 12 bay, which allows for 192 TBs RAW, or an 84 bay, which allows for 1.3 PBs RAW, depending on the storage requirements. Finally, this solution can support roughly 1,500 Mbps during a failed node scenario and up to 2,000 Mbps when all nodes are online.

DEEPSTOR

Can be built depending on the end user’s specifications with about four to eight nodes per cluster, two switches, and a SAN for storage. It includes four nodes that can be scaled up to 64 nodes, two ALE switches, and one SAN, including either a 12 bay or 84 bay. The DEEPSTOR solution can support roughly 2,500 to 2,700 Mbps of bandwidth during a failed node scenario.

DEEPSTOR+

For customers who want to add an additional SAN for extra redundancy in their video storage. This solution can also potentially store the second SAN in a disaster recovery site. It includes four nodes that can be scaled up to 64 nodes, two ALE switches, and two 84 bay SANs, which are mirrored for redundancy.

REVOLV Verified for Milestone Systems XProtect®️ VMS

Milestone Systems has verified BCD’s REVOLV hHCI solution for XProtect Corporate 2021 R1. The test environment consisted of 600 cameras with management and recording on separate servers. REVOLV achieved a combined maximum throughput of 2457.6 Mbit/s.
