Wasabi Technologies has introduced Wasabi Surveillance Cloud, a solution that enables organizations to offload video surveillance footage from their local storage environment directly to the cloud without ever running out of capacity.
This ‘bottomless’ approach to video storage is vital for the surveillance industry that is currently struggling to manage enormous amounts of video in high resolution environments, increasingly large file sizes, stringent regulatory and retention requirements, and business and analytics applications tied to surveillance.
IDC’s Video Surveillance Survey 2022 shows a growing number of enterprises expect their video surveillance storage requirements will increase over the next three years. However the cost of updating an existing technology stack to meet these new demands is simply prohibitive.
“Enterprises increasingly recognize the cost savings, agility, and video data accessibility that cloud storage provides, but they need a way to maintain the benefits of their existing technology stack as well,” said Mike Jude, research director, video surveillance & vision applications, IDC.
“It is essential that storage architecture meet the holistic requirements of modern surveillance in a way that is cost-effective,” Jude added.
Wasabi Surveillance Cloud addresses these challenges head on by creating a seamless hybrid storage environment that preserves current on-site technology investments and maximizes their ROI without sacrificing any of the benefits.
Users of every major video management system (VMS) can offload infrequently accessed video from their on-site servers directly to Wasabi hot cloud storage, which is much more affordable than cloud vendors like AWS S3, Google, or
