Centralized Storage

Promise’s high-capacity Auryn Surveillance Storage block is ideal for deployments requiring a large centralized storage solution for surveillance data.  Storage is the underpinning of any surveillance deployment as it the key piece that ultimately makes surveillance work.

Open Platform

Promise is the developer of the open storage platform for video surveillance. This provides great flexibility as Auryn can be used together with a wide range of VMS and cameras from different vendors. Plus, Auryn is also analytics ready!

Simplicity for Complex Projects

Auryn brings simplicity and reliability to complex deployments with long retention periods requiring massive amounts of storage. Auryn offers simple plug and play deployment and provides up to 112 drives and 672TB of capacity. Auryn creates a centralized storage pool that can be easily managed for your deployment of a few to thousands of cameras.

Partner Ecosystem

Auryn is tested and validated with the widest range of VMS and IP cameras in the industry to ensure compatibility. Promise relies on our extensive surveillance lab and close cooperation with partners to help minimize risk and offer more integration possibilities.

Outstanding Support

Promise prides itself on providing outstanding global coverage and local support. That’s why every purchase of Auryn includes FAE support for installation.

Purpose-Built for Surveillance

  • OPAS – simplified and fast hardware diagnostic mechanism to keep your surveillance system up and running
  • PerfectRebuild - the fastest recovery from hard drive failures for continuous surveillance video recording and playback
  • Online LUN clone - preventive disaster recovery mechanism for video surveillance. Easily keep two copies of surveillance video, so if one is damaged the video is still safe somewhere else
  • PerfectFlash - No interruption during surveillance video recording or playback during maintenance, such as firmware updates
  • Advanced Battery Flash Backup - Advanced surveillance video protection for power outages. In write-back cache mode, power from the battery backup unit (BBU) is used to write the video surveillance data of the RAID controller write cache to non-volatile flash memory in order to extend the period of cache protection beyond the standard 72 hours.
