Milestone Announces XProtect Cloud, Says Not Competing With Arcules

By John Honovich and Sean Patton, Published Mar 08, 2021, 07:40am EST (Info+)

Which is it? Milestone plus Arcules, Milestone or Arcules, or Milestone vs Arcules? Milestone's cloud strategy has been a heated industry debate for the past few years.

At their annual, and first fully virtual, MIPS conference, Milestone announced XProtect Cloud VMS, an "all cloud, all Milestone solution", an evolution from previous Arcules integration and XProtect on AWS.

In this note, we examine the new offering, including feedback from Milestone to IPVM, expected features and availability, and how Milestone compares to sibling Arcules and its conventional competitors such as Avigilon, Exacq, and Genetec.
