Just a quick comment regarding CVMS (New Zealand)
CVMS is a fully cloud based solution virtualising (not hosting) NX Witness, Milestone Pro +, AXIS Camera Station and Digifort Enterprise (with either Avigilon Enterprise or Genetec earmarked for the near future) within VOCUS Enterprise Data Centres. We use CommVault as our BaaS as well as mirrored DC's between three locations. We can retain footage for up to 7 years with VEEAM and our WAN is fully firewalled via FortiNet.
Our client connections are not done via internet as many others are but instead an end to end fibre WAN fully managed through Cisco routers (fully managed as in each and every IP address is locked). Client access on premises is done through a secure WAN backhaul which can be configured to the clients subnet if required. We offer 100/100, 300/300 or 1GB/1GB connections with 48 hour SLA or no SLA. Obviously all mobile connections can be accessed through any internet connection.
We create the IaaS on behalf of our nationwide integrator network at no charge - but a minimum 36 month term applies. We are able to do this for the client at around NZD40 per month per camera and working to reduce this cost everyday.
As more connections come online we are able to utilise our network backbone to introduce a variety of third party applications - which can pick and choose between camera streams and metadata as the client requires.
With the support of our local distributors we are slowly changing the way CCTV is managed in NZ and feel that our distribution model is fully inclusive for distributors, channel partners, integrators / installers and most importantly gives the end user a new level of confidence and security.
