SUSE and HPE Team Together to Assist the Police with Their Storage Needs


We live in a fast, ever changing world where our needs are often greater and greater. This is true in general, but it goes to a whole new level when you think about technology and innovation.

We all know this because we live it regularly; our old and not-so-old devices are quickly lagging behind against the amount of music, photos, video and information in general that we generate and that we need to store and use, and it can be frustrating to be stuck with a tablet/smartphone/lap top that isn’t flexible enough to meet our dynamic requirements and then watching how they turn into an obsolete object that it just doesn’t meet your needs anymore.

Take that situation and imagine it is not about a $500 dollars smartphone, but about a thousand dollars solution, and not about the amount of songs you can carry on your pocket, but about the Police Department in your local community that manages sensitive data (evidence, warrants, security camera footage, etc.)

SUSE and HPE recently teamed up to provide the Orchard Park Police Department a solution that can handle the large influx of data it would receive from their cameras. SUSE Enterprise Storage™ met this need via an open source, software-defined storage solution that offers optimum flexibility and scalability. To go with this solution, Orchard Park chosen HPE Hardware because of its cost-effectiveness, because HPE has provided exceptional servers and service based on four HPE ProLiant DL380 server nodes as the object storage device (OSD) storage nodes, two HPE Flex Fabric switches and three HPE ProLiant DL360 monitoring servers. 

Now with this open source, Ceph-based SUSE Enterprise Storage solution running on HPE servers, the Orchard Park Police Department has a system that is: 

  • Open
  • Scalable
  • Flexible
  • Cost-efficient
  • Resilient


So now the Police Department can focus on the security of the community, while the experts manage their Storage solutions.
