Users with a cloud-first strategy and those looking for a hybrid VMS solution can now deploy a pre-configured XProtect implementation as a solution. The cloud-based VMS is available globally with high flexibility and low maintenance.
XProtect on Amazon Web Services (AWS) is available in the AWS Marketplace. It offers a new way of designing XProtect systems. It is designed to reduce on-premises hardware and leverage AWS to remove the friction involved in setting up and maintaining on-site VMS systems. The result is a highly flexible solution with elastic compute, storage and networking capabilities, and it can be adjusted easily to meet the distributed needs of a business.
Milestone Systems offers two products in AWS Marketplace: the free XProtect Essential+, and XProtect BYOL (Bring Your Own License), which requires a paid license sold through Milestone’s existing distribution channels. Both products provide an experience identical to XProtect software on- premises and are available across all AWS Regions.
By leveraging the power of AWS, XProtect on AWS is ideal for large enterprises, federal organisations and smart cities. Such distributed multi-site-organisations can now accelerate towards cloud-first initiatives and scale easily to meet business demand. AWS’s reliable infrastructure reduces the risk of service disruptions and ensures continuous operation. By reducing on-premises hardware, partial outsourcing of IT infrastructure, and turning CAPEX to OPEX, XProtect on AWS can help organisations optimise their cost structure and deliver better results.
‘Making XProtect available in AWS Marketplace will allow our resellers and partners to scale their businesses, optimise their services, and provide new customer experiences,’ stated Chief Technology Officer at Milestone Systems, Bjørn Skou Eilertsen.
The availability of XProtect in AWS Marketplace allows Milestone to deliver a solution that meets the dynamic scaling needs of customers and enables partners to scale their business. AWS’s global infrastructure and strong innovation strategy made it possible for Milestone Systems to design a solution that is lean, powerful, and globally available, expanding Milestone’s solution portfolio.
