State of VSaaS Market

While most of the 2010s saw significant opposition to VSaaS, now VSaaS offerings and adoption have increased significantly. Though it is still a minority of the market in 2021, we expect VSaaS, via managed offerings, to become the majority in the next 3 years.

For more see VSaaS State Of The Market 2021

Hosted vs Managed vs Hybrid VSaaS

While VSaaS is the general umbrella term, there are two major types of VSaaS: managed and hosted - which relate to where the video is stored.

IPVM Image

  • Managed video is when the video is still stored on-site as it is traditionally has been but managed in the cloud.
  • Hosted video is when the video is stored in the cloud, not on-site, as well as managed in the cloud.
  • Hybrid video is when the video storage is supported on-site or in the cloud. The cloud is often for store-and-forward video backup of the on-site recorder but also can be used as the primary recording medium.

Managed - Remote Connection

The following providers offer cloud services for remotely connecting clients to cameras and servers. Some managed VSaaS do not require paid subscriptions because no storage is offered.

So I wonder now how the impact of Net Neutrally ruling will have on Cloud services, when dealing with streaming video.

Will the underlying network providers assume it's USA based have a means now to increase costs, which in turn will be passed to consumers.

Be interested if anyone has been giving notice for extra costs!!

#1, there's a lot of talk in the USA since yesterday's net neutrality repeal. However, I have not seen any discussion about how it will specifically impact different services. That's not to say it will not, just that it's so early right now that it's mostly education guesses, at best.

Btw, with or without net neutrality, the carriers can deal with streaming video simply by charging more for total bandwidth consumption, which would directly impact cloud video providers. Since there have not been many price premiums charged to date for total bandwidth, it would indicate that it is not likely going to be a factor of the net neutrality change.

Xfinity's 1TB data cap is a good example and shows how codecs alone can't address large cloud deployments.

The data cap was implemented during the period of time that net neutrality was in effect so you cannot claim that reverting back to the old rules results in the cap and/or an increase cost. Net neutrality never impacted the carriers ability to limit usage with a Data Cap. Caps make sense, why should everyone else pay for a few percent of users who hog bandwidth. If you choose to stream your cameras to the cloud 24/7, then you should pay for it.

I was citing the data cap it as an example of a clean way to charge more unrelated to net neutrality. That was John's whole point.

Any plans to do a comparison chart

Not immediately but probably in 2018. On the plus side, interest is now rising. On the negative side, it is from a very low level.

We did one in 2010: Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) Comparison 2010. It's obviously only for historical interest but it does give a sense how long VSaaS has struggled. Actually, at the end of 2000s, VSaaS was fairly hot (at least in terms of marketing) but it never went mainstream.

Please add VIAAS to your list.  We have been in continuous operation since 2008 under both the VIAAS and CudaCam (by Barracuda Networks) brands.  Arguably one of, if not the first cloud-connected VSaaS providers.  

Not ironically, key personnel at Eagle Eye were early employees at VIAAS before Eagle Eye was founded.

Hi team,

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.

Should Network Optix be on this list?

This list is for those who provide cloud storage, i.e., hosted video. Network Optix Cloud is managed video, i.e., local storage, cloud management / control.

If I am wrong and they are not storing video in the cloud, we will certainly add it.

So is a requirement to be on this list that they must store some part of the video offline and in the cloud then? Not that I care who is and is not on the list, but I am trying to explore all options. I myself am looking for a platform that does not have to store everything in the cloud and made a seprate post for that. 

You have many in this list that are "Local recording" but cloud access/management. I realize some can also do the cloud recording too. 

 

Like I don't understand how "OpenEye - Open, but requires OpenEye recorder. Local recording, cloud-based management/access." is on the list, but then . Network Optix Cloud would not be. I thought they both did the same thing? Store locally, but then are cloud managed and controlled?

OpenEye offers investigative or evidence video storage in the cloud (In addition to cloud management). The primary recording is on-premise, but OpenEye includes 2GB of cloud storage with each recorder, and for additional cost offers additional cloud storage in 50GB increments.

Aaron, we've tested the Exacq's Cloud Drive Storage but Exacq has not yet released their cloud access,  i.e., accessing video remotely from the cloud that is stored on-site. We've been told that it is part of this month's release and we emailed them a few days ago asking when it is live. We will update accordingly.

We are a Mobotix integrator and are currently using a new cloud storage tool that I don’t see listed here for Mobotix called MXLinQ.  This is an amazing and secure app that we use for Mobotix cloud.  It not only allows us cloud video storage capability but also remote monitoring of the health of our complete systems.  

Because Mobotix is decentralized, moving to the cloud Is the perfect option.    No more cumbersome and costly NAS devices and failed local storage hard drives.   All we need is a PoE switch and the internal Micro SD card in the camera for failover. No onsite appliances needed and it works.    

This has been a game changer for us and is really making a differences.

Kenneth,

Thanks for the information, MXLinQ appears to be a 3rd party VSaaS solution for Mobotix cameras only, and but not a solution from Mobotix. Interestingly, it comes up in a general Google search, but not if you use the search on Mobotix's website.

Can you share how the subscription is structured (per camera/per month, N days of storage), and how cameras are connected securely to the service? ABP tech markets IP TechView for cloud monitoring of non-camera devices (e.g. PBX), does your company use that functionality, or strictly for cameras?

Sean,  MXLinQ is a 3rd party VSaaS solution built for Mobotix.  ABP is a large US distributor for Mobotix and the owner of ABP has extensive knowledge of the Mobotix cameras and camera platform.  I know Mobotix is aware of this solution and obviously knows that the platform works.  Not sure why they don't mention it on their website.

Those of us who sell a lot of Mobotix cameras have been wanting a cloud solution for a long time.  We are seeing a lot of our current and prospective customers asking for a cloud storage solution for the cameras since they are perfect fit for this type of application.  Up until this solution came out we had nothing.  We love Eagle Eye but it will not work with Mobotix.  Cloud is the future of video.  We currently have a several hundred cameras up and using the system with no issues and our customers love the ease of use that the platform offers.  Much better then the Mobotix VMS.

They offer many different storage options. 7/14/30/60/90 days etc.  It is secure and creates a VPN connection so no ports to open or anything like that.  We only use it for Mobotix cameras however, they will have a new release soon that will allow other cameras to work on the system too.  This helps us if we are doing a takeover and they want to add new Mobotix cameras and they currently have a few Axis cameras or whatever as an example.   The real difference for us is not just the cloud storage but the other capabilities we get as far as remote management of the cameras that this system offers that no other cloud does.  That is the real value of the system.    I have asked a rep from APB to respond so hopefully they will read this and give you some further information.
