Arcules partners with Milestone Systems to deliver hybrid VMS solution

Arcules, the specialist in integrated video and access control cloud services, has announced the commercial availability of the Arcules-XProtect Hybrid VMS solution in Europe and North . The solution represents a combination of the Arcules Video Surveillance-as-a-Service (VSaaS) integrated with Milestone XProtect Corporate on-premise video management software (VMS). The result is a flexible and feature-rich hybrid video surveillance solution ideal for organisations looking to centralise their dispersed video surveillance operations.

Organisations that require both the flexibility of VSaaS and the functionality of on-premise VMS benefit from the Arcules-XProtect Hybrid VMS solution with performance built on enterprise-grade infrastructure and security.

With the Arcules-XProtect Hybrid VMS solution, Milestone XProtect customers can deploy remote sites quickly, with minimal IT resources and downtime, while still benefiting from the strong capabilities of XProtect on-premise VMS. Additionally, Arcules’ intuitive platform provides sites and cameras connected to Arcules VSaaS an underlying cloud infrastructure such as compatibility between sites, low video latency, data encryption, redundancy, streamlined maintenance with automatic updates and easy on-boarding.

“Milestone resellers and end user customers are planning their deployment to take advantage of the many benefits of cloud computing,” said Bjørn Skou Eilertsen, CTO of Milestone Systems. “This integration gives Milestone XProtect Corporate customers a new hybrid cloud computing deployment option. The typical Milestone XProtect Corporate user has many branch offices of different sizes and locations. Enabling this hybrid deployment option can allow them to simplify large scale deployments. After the Arcules system is interconnected, the user can use these Arcules connected cameras with the advanced XProtect Corporate product capabilities.”

The Arcules-XProtect Hybrid VMS solution uses Milestone Interconnect technology to combine the hyper-scalability and licensing flexibility of Arcules cloud service with the feature-rich video management functions of XProtect Corporate. The combination of these advanced technologies provides uniform access to live video, recordings and alarms across cameras physically connected on-premise and virtually connected via the Arcules cloud through XProtect Smart Client, XProtect Smart Wall and the web and mobile clients.

Organisations with distributed locations such as healthcare, retail, corporate campuses and education and utility environments all benefit from high-performance cloud services to provide real-time insight in the event of an incident in remote areas. The Arcules-XProtect Hybrid VMS solution also adds value to monitoring stations and law enforcement organisations that use XProtect Corporate as their VMS platform. Such organisations can now access cameras and customers subscribed to the Arcules cloud service directly from their on-premise XProtect system.

“The Arcules-XProtect Hybrid VMS solution is an ideal solution for businesses looking to expand their surveillance operation across geographically dispersed locations,” explained Arcules’ CEO Andreas Pettersson. “These businesses can enjoy the strong capabilities of on-premise VMS while reducing their capital investment. The solution also enables organisations to better manage their operational costs as a result of flexible pricing schemes and minimal hardware requirements.”
