SecuriGuard opts for NEC servers

SecuriGuard has chosen NEC Express servers to host its CCTV and access control systems

Canada-based SecuriGuard has announced the selection of NEC Express servers to house its integrated security solution for Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) surveillance and access control systems in the Middle East. The announcement concludes a study of available options on the market that spanned several weeks.

The SecuriGuard applications are now up and running on NEC Express Fault Tolerant (FT) Intel-based servers after NEC engineers spent several days deploying them.

"The NEC servers, the implementation process and the support services has been a successful project and we are very pleased with the level of benefits it provides us. FT servers were the perfect solution to our needs,” said Baldev Singh Sandhu, managing director of SecuriGuard in the UAE.

According to a statement released by NEC, SecuriGuard initially considered running applications on software-clustered servers, but the cluster resulted in setup and failover issues.

The server deployment was handled by NEC-certified engineers from Al Yousuf Computers, providers of NEC FT Servers in the United Arab Emirates.
