Exacq Technologies updates exacqVision 6.6 and Enterprise System Manager version 3.0 with ESM Failover

by vmstoday - on Jan 13th 2015 - No Comments

Exacq Technologies introduces the ability to set up and manage failover on exacqVision servers with exacqVision 6.6 and Enterprise System Manager (ESM) version 3.0, a health monitoring program for use with exacqVision Enterprise networked video recorders (NVRs). The new exacqVision version 6.6 VMS (video management system) also includes updates to the views and event monitoring features in exacqVision, faster searching with the Exacq mobile app and additional updates to ESM.

The new ESM failover functionality continually monitors exacqVision recorders. A system failure can be detected within 15-30 seconds and an actual failover to a spare server or servers can be automatically instigated in a matter of minutes. Failover functions include IP cameras, recording schedules, user rights, event linking, serial profiles, archiving configuration and more. Once the protected recorder is back online, ESM automatically transfers all functionality back to the original server. Users can also use ESM Failover to perform manual failover on exacqVision recorders at any time to conduct system maintenance.

In addition to the new failover feature, ESM version 3.0 also adds features that improve server user management over an enterprise network. This makes it easier for system administrators to add and remove servers and users from defined groups.

exacqVision 6.6 gives users and system administrators greater flexibility and personalisation when creating and using the views feature. Views can now be shared with all users, shared with a defined group of users or kept private to individual users – Read more
