COPENHAGEN, Denmark—Arcules and Milestone Systems are partnering up to bring a cloud-based hybrid VMS solution for enterprise applications.

Now available in North America and Europe, the Arcules-XProtect Hybrid VMS solution represents a combination of the Arcules Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) integrated with Milestone XProtect Corporate on-premise video management software (VMS), resulting in a flexible hybrid video surveillance solution ideal for organizations looking to centralize their dispersed video surveillance operations, or requiring both the flexibility of VSaaS and the functionality of on-premise VMS.

“Milestone resellers and end customers are planning their deployment to take advantage of the many benefits of cloud computing. This integration gives Milestone XProtect Corporate customers a new hybrid cloud computing deployment option,” Milestone Systems CTO Bjørn Skou Eilertsen said in the announcement. “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 utilize 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 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.

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

The Arcules-XProtect Hybrid VMS Solution regional availability outside of North America and Europe is based on market demand conditioned by datacenter availability and/or the possibility to utilize data centers in other regions.

Arcules will demonstrate the solution in booth #809 at the MIPS 2020 Conference, February 17-19, at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, Texas as well as in Arcules booth #31081 and Milestone booth #18053 during the 2020 ISC West Conference and Expo, March 17-20, at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.
