Comparison of VSaaS vs. Internet-Connected Security Camera Systems

EE WingsAUSTIN, Texas, August 27, 2015 – Eagle Eye Networks today announced the availability of its “VSaaS: 11 Reasons Why Video Surveillance is Moving to the Cloud” whitepaper. The report covers an 11 point comparison of a VSaaS (cloud-based video management) system to a traditional DVR, NVR, or VMS system that is connected to the Internet.

The report also includes the criteria for a true cloud system as defined by the U.S. Department of Commerce standards group NIST.

VSaaS, or Video Surveillance as a Service, refers to hosted cloud video surveillance. The service typically includes video recording, remote viewing, alerts, cyber security and much more. You only pay for the services you actually use, and you can adjust instantly and easily as your business needs change. For example, you can change the retention and camera resolution without having to modify your existing hardware.

“Cloud systems utilize a large shared infrastructure for video storage, providing tremendous economies of scale and flexibility,” said Dean Drako, president and CEO at Eagle Eye Networks. “We created this whitepaper to serve as a guide to assess when VSaaS will best fit a business’ security camera requirements, as well as a checklist for comparing cloud video surveillance systems with internet-connected systems.”

The whitepaper covers:

1. Cloud Adoption & Economies of Scale

2. Fundamental Elements of a “True Cloud” System (VSaaS)
