Eagle Eye Networks announces new data center in Austin, Texas, for cloud video recording
AUSTIN, Texas—Eagle Eye Networks in September announced the addition of a new data center, located here. This is Eagle Eye’s second data center in the United States; the first is located in Santa Clara, Calif. Eagle Eye Networks has plans to add data centers worldwide to meet expanding demand for the Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera VMS.
The Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS is powered by multiple, redundant Tier IV data centers. This infrastructure has been specifically designed for video and is managed directly by Eagle Eye personnel to provide maximum security, performance, and availability.
A recent survey showed that 65 percent of businesses wanted at least some cloud video recording, according to Eagle Eye.
“Companies are demanding flexible cloud video recording for better access to the video content, off-site redundancy, and greater flexibility,” said Dean Drako, Eagle Eye Networks’ President and CEO in a prepared statement. “Video takes up more room than other IT data, and Eagle Eye will continue to build large data centers in North America and in other locations around the world.”
The data centers will also support developer activity for the cloud-based Eagle Eye Video API, which allows businesses and developers to integrate camera video into their applications without having to worry about a complex infrastructure. Developers can use the Eagle Eye Video API access to integrate alerts, user interfaces, and analysis ranging from simple searches to Big Data analytics.
