Milestone Systems today announced the availability of its XProtect on Amazon Web Services (AWS) solution in AWS Marketplace. XProtect on AWS 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, that adjusts easily to the distributed needs of the 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 and thanks to its flexible design, XProtect on AWS is ideal for large enterprises, federal organizations, and smart cities. Such distributed multi-site-organizations 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 organizations optimize their cost structure and deliver better results.
“Making XProtect available in AWS Marketplace will allow our resellers and partners to scale their businesses, optimize their services, and provide new customer experiences”, said Chief Technology Officer Bjørn Skou Eilertsen, Milestone Systems.
