Nice to hear that they are offering more product offerings to their dealers, we've been a long time dealer and every-time they suggest that the pricing "should be" the same, it rarely turns out to be true. 

Genetec had maintained they didn't want their sales guys to be selling storage (at least at the high end) so much for that...further driving a wedge between their storage partners (EMC, Quantuum... Veracity? Intransa?!..their partner page needs a refresh http://www.genetec.com/partners/technology-alliance/existing-partners?category=371&type=) and with a name like "Streamvault" you would think there would be some "cloud" component as Genetec has echoed the mantra "cloud first" lately.

Disclaimer : I am a Genetec employee.

Genetec’s cloud-first philosophy means we are always evaluating ways we can use the cloud to enhance our solutions. Streamvault appliances natively take advantage of our various cloud-based services which allow proactive maintenance and system updates, eg. the System Availability Monitor and the Genetec Update Service. Our customers can also archive video to the cloud for longer-term storage directly from Streamvault equipment.

Each Streamvault appliance is pre-hardened to minimize any cybersecurity-related risks and vulnerabilities. And, through the update service mentioned above, our customers can quickly deploy the latest Genetec software, as well as Windows updates, so they benefit from the most recent cybersecurity enhancements as they become available.

Genetec Still uses BCDvideo junk. Have never received a BCD Server that worked right out of the box.

BCDVideo uses HP servers, which most would not call "junk" (though, like anything with electronics these days there will certainly be strong haters and lovers of any given brand/technology).

In our 2016 survey on favorite video/storage servers, BCDVideo ranked well and was generally praised by other integrators.

What kinds of problems have you encountered out of the box with them? Since they also promote their warranties, how were these resolved? I would be interested in hearing more specifics on your experience.
