These things make hybrid cloud video attractive

By Tom Buckley on Sep 30, 2020 1:34:47 PM

hybrid-cloudAsmag.com recently wrote an article on the benefits of a hybrid cloud architecture for video surveillance, and highlighted Qumulex in the article. It starts off:

More and more, cloud-based video surveillance is gaining traction. However, to some users, pure cloud has certain shortcomings. In this sense, the so-called hybrid cloud architecture can give end users the benefits of both on-prem and cloud solutions.

A hybrid cloud solution allows the user to store certain video onsite and others in the cloud, providing flexibility. “From a flexibility standpoint, hybrid systems allow customers to use inexpensive local storage for video archiving and less high-value video, while enjoying the benefits of the cloud for high-value video,” said Tom Buckley, Co-Founder of Qumulex. “Additionally, due to regulatory, insurance or other reasons, some customers have cameras in classified or sensitive areas that they don’t want to store in the cloud, yet want to utilize the same system to utilize the remainder of the cameras in the cloud.”

Qumulex growth chronicled in the Indianapolis Business Journal

By Tom Buckley on May 6, 2020 11:55:00 AM

IBJ on Qumulex's early growth

The Indianapolis Business Journal's North of 96th blog recently chronicled the early growth of Qumulex.

The genesis of the article came from the recent grant to Qumulex by the Indiana Economic Development Corp to help with job growth. The article goes on to highlight the founders who are serial entrepreneurs: 

Qumulex’s 21 employees are now working to offer those companies a mobile app and browser-based software that modernizes legacy cameras and access controls by transitioning them to an entirely cloud-based or hybrid system.

If surveillance is all about tracking where someone has been, then Qumulex’s founders are hoping the trail of successful companies they’ve left in their wake will instill confidence in the new brand.

The company’s eight founders have been building transitional technology products and selling them to commercial security systems dealers across the nation for 30 years. Buckley said Qumulex has ties to successful video conversion companies, like Truevision and Integral, from as far back as the late 1980s.

In 2005, Qumulex’s cofounders launched Exacq Technologies. The company, which focuses on security and surveillance video management systems, was named one of IBJ’s 10 fastest-growing private companies in 2012 and 2013.

Later that year, Switzerland-based Tyco International Ltd. saw Exacq was on track to generate $75 million in revenue in 2014 and quickly bought the company for $150 million.

Will lightning strike again for Qumulex’s serial entrepreneur founders?

By Tom Buckley on Mar 24, 2020 1:22:00 PM

Techpoint profile of QumulexTechPoint, the growth accelerator for Indiana's tech ecosystem, recently published a profile of Qumulex, focusing on Qumulex's serial entrepreneur founders, and the unique opportunity of applying new technology to the commercial video surveillance and access control space.

On the time being right to introduce new technology into the commercial physical security channel, they commented:

Qumulex has quickly grown to employ 21 and expects to hire at least 10 more people this year, with the ultimate goal of employing (and hopefully surpassing) the success of previous entrepreneurial ventures. Currently operating out of the Indiana IoT Lab in Fishers, Ind., the company has benefited from the innovative environment and serendipitous relationships built in proximity to other trailblazers and entrepreneurs.

The team at Qumulex has made it a habit to enter markets right as they are undergoing a technology transformation. They launched one of the first hard drive-based digital recorders when the physical security industry standard was still predominantly using time-lapse VCRs and half-inch tapes. They also developed a control box with a modern user interface for high-resolution IP cameras, just as the industry was shifting to the new cameras from the older analog versions.

Today, in their latest venture at Qumulex, they are operating at an intersection of the industry’s shift from on-premise servers and access control systems to the cloud.

Our thanks to the team at TechPoint. You can read the full article here.

Business Spotlight: Qumulex

By Tom Buckley on Jan 16, 2020 10:13:50 AM

Q12020-cutout-for-blog-680bThink Fishers, a quarterly publication of the City of Fishers, IN, where Qumulex is headquartered, has a feature article on Qumulex in its Jan 2020 edition. The article starts off:

As consumers utilize flexible and user-friendly security
technologies in their homes, they have started demanding similar
technologies in their place of work. Commercial security initially
lagged in its transition to the familiar, user-friendly cloud-based
security systems in comparison to other technologies.

Taking advantage of the technology shift in the video
surveillance market is Fishers-based Qumulex, a tech
company specializing in a unified cloud-based surveillance
and access control software for the commercial market.

With a core leadership rooted in the video surveillance
industry, President Dan Rittman and the Qumulex team
were previously a part of two other surveillance companies,
both taking advantage of technology shifts of the time.
