Genetec As a VSaaS?

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Apr 30, 2012

For all of the hype surrounding VSaaS, adoption remains sluggish. This is especially true among larger customers with more stringent demands, who have been hesitant to move their video to the public cloud. Capitalizing on this, Genetec has begun to position themselves as an alternative to VSaaS, allowing users to set up their own "cloud", without the potential risks involved in other solutions. In this note, we overview this approach, how it impacts their target customers, and how it compares to other VMS turned VSaaS offerings.

[Update: Genetec has now announced a 'true' VSaaS offering.]
