By: IPVM Team, Published on Oct 31, 2018

Storing email and documents in the cloud have long been common, with on-site email or file servers increasingly eliminated.

However, what about video surveillance? What percentage of new video surveillance deployments are integrators using cloud storage for?

150+ integrators answered this:

Cloud: In the past year what percentage of your new deployments use cloud storage? Why or why not cloud storage?

Their responses were nearly unanimous. In this note, we examine the statistics and the explanations from integrators.
