John van den Elzen, General Manager, Surveillance Business UnitWith the ever evolving surveillance technology, end-users are leveraging high-resolution video monitoring to address their security risks. Furthermore, the ongoing shift from analog to IP cameras, the Internet of Things, video in the cloud with intelligent video recording, and big data marketing through video analytics also contribute to the growth of surveillance technology.
Being abreast of the world events and technological changeovers, Milpitas, CA based PROMISE Technology provides storage solutions for the cloud/IT, rich media, and video surveillance markets. As the open storage platform for video surveillance, PROMISE continuously interacts with end customers, eco-system partners, installers, and integrators to create optimized storage solutions for the surveillance industry. “Our surveillance infrastructure solutions are built to fit for deployments of any size—from standalone units to scale-out solutions and video surveillance cloud services,” exclaims John van den Elzen, General Manager, Surveillance Business Unit, PROMISE Technology.
For an ultimate user experience for end customers, PROMISE offers 24/7 free phone support, advance spare part replacement for modular built systems to guarantee the recordings, and software development kits for deeper integration. “We are creating plug-ins for a smooth interaction between the VMS companies and our storage solutions which creates a more streamlined user experience,” says van den Elzen. PROMISE understands that determining the requirements for a surveillance project can be time-consuming and requires complex configurations. “Our Surveillance Project Design Tool simplifies the work for system integrators and security professionals. The online tool also helps users choose an optimal solution for their project—quickly and easily,” says van den Elzen. After the user enters the required settings, the tool showcases what PROMISE recommends for NVRs and storage, and provides a detailed report showing a topology of the interconnecting systems of the user’s surveillance project. Besides that, a range of advanced functions—multi-group camera entry support, multiple video management software and high-availability options are also offered.
To better meet the needs of its customers, PROMISE transitioned over a decade ago from designing and manufacturing components to developing storage systems for the rich media and cloud/IT markets in addition to various surveillance applications—retail, gaming, government and many more.

Higher processor capacity in combination with PROMISE’s proprietary advanced RAID engine, PROMISE SDK and PROMISE Surveillance Optimizer are the key differentiators for clients in retail. “Additionally, in the Government sector we are working closely with our security ecosystem partners to create optimized NVR appliances and storage solutions to serve the specifics in this vertical,” points out van den Elzen. PROMISE has also built up a considerable amount of experience in the gaming sector—casino industry.
What makes PROMISE Technology unexampled? The company’s state-of-the-art innovation lab, where its offerings are refined, tested and molded as high performance and easy to use solutions. This uncommon trait has steered the company’s core foundation—to transform the industry and its clients with its solutions, and one of them was Johnson Controls Inc. (JCI). This automation company delivers integrated security solutions for large buildings, and was approached to create a new security platform for the Baghdad International Airport. Not knowing how to store data from over 400 cameras—as part of the security project, JCI deployed more than 40 high capacity Vess systems from PROMISE Technology, only to gain performance, flexibility and capacity.
PROMISE is committed to provide its clients innovative and high-performance storage solutions. “We want to deliver practical answers to the business challenges of security professionals and system integrators. By working closely with our ecosystem of partners, including the top VMS and IP camera vendors, we are able to address these challenges and meet the requirements of even the most demanding environments,” concludes van den Elzen.
