Exacq Remote Cloud Access Tested

By: Sean Patton, Published on Jun 20, 2019

Remote cloud access has been missing from most VMSes (including Exacq and Milestone). Now, Exacq, after releasing Cloud Drive Storage earlier in 2019, has added remote cloud access with "Cloud Relay", part of their new 19.06 release.

How well does Cloud Relay work? We tested it and share our findings on:

  • What Are The Capabilities and Limitations
  • How Does Remote Streaming Perform
  • What Clients Are Supported
  • How Is It Configured
