Axis Iomega VSaaS Integration Examined

Author: John Honovich, Published on Apr 04, 2011

In this note, we examine the integration of Iomega NAS devices with Axis's AVHS hosted video offering. While AVHS previously supported limited NAS systems, the Iomega integration likely represents a much stronger and serious attempt by Axis to expand VSaaS. Inside, we look at the relative economics and how on-site NAS greatly improves the traditionally poor business case of hosted video.
