Samsung CCTV products for video surveillance (network cameras, encoders, Digital Video Recorders and Network Video Recorders) are managed through a single application, named Samsung Security Manager (SSM).
The SSM application is critical because,
The operators relying on the Samsung Security Manager application must react immediately to the slightest incident. The idea of an IT failure compromising the video surveillance and the operators’ view is totally unthinkable.
SafeKit is a simple and economical high availability software. SafeKit is installed on two standard Windows PCs or servers (physical or virtual). Without changing the Samsung Security Manager (SSM) application, a mirror module implements real-time replication of SSM data over the network, automatic restart of the SSM application in case of failure and failover of the virtual IP address.
Tommy Park, CEO, WithNCompany, South Korea:
“WithNCompany is a reseller of Evidian SafeKit in South Korea. WithNCompany has deployed many SafeKit high availability solutions with the Samsung Video Surveillance Platform and with the SSM application. SafeKit is appreciated because the product is easy to install and very quickly deployed. The SSM application does not need to be modified to run in the high availability mode. The SSM application can be installed on the default C: drive and there is no need to configure a separate disk volume. SafeKit is able to make real-time replication of SSM folders inside the C: drive. Moreover, for cost saving, SafeKit can be installed on 2 Windows PCs instead of 2 servers.”
