I just took advantage of the AWS Founders Package, where they will give integrators/startups/anyone without institutional funding a bunch of free AWS credits, as well as free educational/IT support credits to use.

It's a great program if you're interested in taking this for a test run, which is what I'll be doing shortly. Have fun in the lab!

AWS launches Activate Founders package, offering up to $1,000 in credits to select bootstrapped startups

Confusing DIY Cloud Model: While Milestone is now actually offering a hosted cloud, remotely accessible VMS, it is much more confusing and complicated than its competitors. Integrators will need to learn the complexities of AWS cloud infrastructure.

I kind of like this, but maybe it should be an advanced user feature.

Full disclosure - I work for a cloud video surveillance company

I watched this video, I've always admired Milestone - both the products and the people. However, this just confused me. It's way too complex for the average person to install, configure and maintain. You have to be an AWS expert to make it work. This is not how cloud applications should be. If you want to run Office 365 or Google G-Suite you just turn it on, add your users and go. If you want to leverage Salesforce.com you don't have to do all of these things. I think they missed the mark.

(obviously I'm biased, but this is my honest opinion.)

Man up and learn AWS, Integration companies that cannot keep up will be overlooked. Don't sit around on old money and design theories. Get to the Choppa! There is more upside than downside by migrating your business models to interoperate with cloud technologies.

So, my work from homies, get on it!

I agree that you have to evolve. Just like people have moved from analog cameras to IP cameras. However Axis brought an entire camera to market for integrators, not a bucket of parts and an online manual about how to assemble them.
