Building Management & Security

SIOS appreciates that every aspect of building management and security (BMS) —from monitoring and surveillance systems to computerized maintenance management to power management systems, relies on critical applications and data. SIOS high availability clustering software protects these critical systems from unplanned failures at any level; infrastructure, network, and application and through local, regional, and/or site-wide disasters.

Video Management Systems (VMS)

Electronic monitoring and surveillance systems may comprise a wide range of subsystems, including video management systems, access control systems, perimeter protection, physical security information management (PSIM) software, fire safety systems and others. Even brief downtime for these systems could put the entire facility at risk of intrusion, theft, vandalism, fire.

Across All Platforms and Operating Systems

Whether these systems are running in virtualized environments (VMware, Hyper-V), traditional on-premises, or cloud environments, SIOS clustering software protects applications without the need for specialized hardware or configuration restrictions. Use SIOS DataKeeper with Windows Server Failover Clustering (WSFC) for robust HA/DR protection without the cost and complexity of shared storage. Use SIOS Protection Suite for Linux for powerful application-aware clustering in a Linux environment.

Building Management

Total building management solutions work by providing an end-to-end solution for all building operations in a single platform. They are a convergence of multiple systems, spanning video surveillance management, recording and archival, voice, data, storage, industrial monitoring (SCADA systems), HVAC, building and power management, security systems, video intercoms, irrigation, billboards, lifts, and lighting control. Many are designed as a powerful platform that integrates multiple vendor applications within it including product from Johnson Control, Philips Dynalite, and Schneider Electric and others.

SIOS DataKeeper integrates with Microsoft Windows Server Failover Clustering to deliver simple, cost efficient, high availability for virtual (VMware or Hyper-V) machines that supported multiple integrations of devices and data security. SIOS LifeKeeper for Linux delivers robust, application-aware HA/DR protection for systems running in open source environments.
