XProtect on Amazon Web Services now available in AWS Marketplace

10 June 2020

MILESTONE SYSTEMS has announced the availability of its XProtect on Amazon Web Services (AWS) solution in AWS Marketplace. XProtect on AWS offers a new way of designing XProtect systems.

The move is designed to reduce on-premises hardware and leverage AWS to remove the friction involved in setting up and maintaining on-site VMS solutions. The end result is a highly flexible solution with elastic compute, storage and networking that adjusts easily to the distributed needs of the business.

Milestone Systems offers two products in AWS Marketplace: the free XProtect Essential+ and XProtect BYOL (Bring Your Own License), which requires a paid license sold through Milestone’s existing distribution channels.

Both products provide an experience identical to XProtect software on-premise and are available across all AWS regions.

Flexible, cost-effective, reliable

By leveraging the power of AWS and thanks to its flexible design, XProtect on AWS is ideal for larger enterprises and smart cities. Such distributed multi-site organisations can now accelerate towards cloud-first initiatives and scale easily to meet business demand.

AWS’ reliable infrastructure reduces the risk of service disruptions and ensures continuous operation. By reducing on-premise hardware, partial outsourcing of IT infrastructure and turning CAPEX to OPEX, XProtect on AWS can help organisations in optimising their cost structure to deliver better results.

“Making XProtect available in AWS Marketplace will allow our resellers and partners to scale their businesses, optimise their services and provide new customer experiences,” explained Chief Technology Officer Bjørn Skou Eilertsen.

The availability of XProtect in AWS Marketplace allows Milestone to deliver a solution that meets the dynamic scaling needs of customers and enables partners to scale their business. AWS’ global infrastructure and strong innovation strategy made it possible for Milestone Systems to design a solution that is lean, powerful and globally available, in turn expanding Milestone’s solution portfolio to the AWS Marketplace.
