Three industry leaders will bring digital video surveillance to the doorstep,
Empowering users to monitor from virtually anywhere
Service targeted at SMB’s and distributed enterprises
New Delhi, December 2, 2011
– Iomega, an EMC company and an innovator in data storage solutions for small and medium businesses (SMBs), today announced the launch of video surveillance storage management solutions in partnership with Tulip Telecom and Mindtree Limited. The partnership looks to provide India’s first video surveillance services based on cloud technology. The market, which is estimated to be US$ 225 million in 2011*, is largely focused on the enterprise market, and has not fully addressed the needs of SMBs and the Indian consumer.
The cloud solution involves Iomega® StorCenter™ network storage devices, Tulip’s national broadband network with cloud data centers, and Mindtree’s video management software. The solution provides superior yet economical local cloud video surveillance solutions for SMBs and distributed enterprises. The solution will be made available on all Iomega StorCenter ix and px series in India.
“Iomega is helping to redefine video surveillance technology by delivering a high performance, low cost all-in-one IP solution targeting small businesses and distributed enterprises,” said Jonathan Huberman, President, Iomega Corporation. “Our product not only delivers on the promise of an easy to install and use security appliance but also adds business productivity tools such as loss prevention, compliance and a planning tool that businesses can use to increase revenue, improve operations and enhance profitability. With leading video management software partner Mindtree, Iomega StorCenter network storage products deliver the latest hosted video surveillance solutions. We are excited to join with Tulip and Mindtree in delivering advanced, dependable and economical hosted local and cloud video surveillance solutions."
Iomega’s association with Tulip, leading Enterprise Communications Services provider, will enable ‘Iomega StorCenter plus’ to quickly reach India’s top 2400 businesses, currently served by Tulip over its Nationwide Broadband Network. Further, with Tulip launching world’s third largest Data Centre earlier this year in Bangalore with capacity of approx 900,000 square feet will strongly complement the product offering launched by Iomega, Tulip and Mindtree together.
On the partnership, Sanjay Jain, CEO, Tulip Telecom Ltd, said, “We are pleased to partner with Iomega and Mindtree in bringing a future ready product for a large pool of SMB and fast growing Enterprises. We believe our strong Network, and corporate data connectivity services will strongly compliment the product in fast reaching businesses which have been evaluating the adoption of Video Surveillance solution for their business operations. The company has adopted a dual approach of making investments wherever required (e.g Data Centre) and working through domestic and global partnerships. These partnerships have acted as a catalyst in driving company’s positioning towards becoming a one stop shop for its customers for all their data services needs and we intent to walk this path in times to come as well.”
Iomega’s association with Mindtree, a global IT and Product Engineering Services company, will provide Mindtree’s SecureMind Surveillance Manager Video Management System (VMS) application on all Iomega StorCenter network storage devices. The Iomega StorCenter device plus Mindtree SecureMind solution delivers a feature-rich video surveillance management application, enabling users to manage surveillance activities while simultaneously storing the video.

Choosing from hundreds of different camera manufacturers, the StorCenter unit plus SecureMind combination supports up to 48 cameras and up to 36TB** of storage capacity per device. Solution highlights include:
