VSaaS Usage Statistics 2018

By: Brian Karas, Published on Jan 18, 2018

VSaaS has been a 'next big thing' for more than a decade. The prospect of managing, storing and streaming video from the cloud rather than on-premise has been anticipated for years. But in 2016, IPVM stats showed less than 1/4th of integrators were even offering VSaaS.

Now, new IPVM statistics based on 200+ integrators responses analyze where VSaaS has gone in the past 2 years, which supplier has garnered the most integrator support and where it looks to go for the next few years.
