Replacing Avigilon System With Milestone?

Client has approximately 30 Avigilon cameras on an an Avigilon server. They would like to get away from their service provider and switch to us, but we are not Avigilon dealers, so we are looking at replacing the VMS with Milestone.

I believe there may be two servers

We do not have much experience in this area. Is it possible to just install Milestone on the server(s) and leave Avigilon there and just stop running it? That way they have access to old footage?

I know one is 15 or 18TB and the other is 3ish TB. That doesnt make sense either, as I would think the loads would be balanced on each server. I would imagine these have RAID configurations, which I am not familiar with.

The needs are very basic. live view and retrieve footage. This is a small apartment community with VERY basic needs. I am very tempted to put in a couple Dahua NVR's but I think the SmartPSS would be too clunky for them.

Thoughts?
