NETGEAR, a provider of networking equipment for homes and SMBs, has teamed with Arcus Global Inc., a Milestone company, a provider of open platform IP video management software (VMS), to run Milestone Arcus on NETGEAR ReadyNAS.
This collaboration with Arcus Global will enable businesses to leverage their ReadyNAS for dual purposes — video surveillance storage and management, as well as secure business data storage and backup.
As video surveillance has become a common means of protecting businesses and their customers and visitors, scalability of video systems has become a major challenge, both for supporting more types and quantity of cameras and for storing ever-increasing amounts of video data. The new combined solution from NETGEAR and Arcus Global Inc., makes it possible for SMBs — such as cafes, pre-schools, small hotels, independent retailers, small offices, and property management firms, among others —to meet their needs of physical security with minimal investment, effort, and total ownership cost.
“Smaller businesses have to wrestle with video surveillance scalability and data reliability just as large organizations do, but often find that current solutions are too difficult to install, too expensive to acquire, or have too few features and too little capacity,” said Annamalai Ar, National Head Storage, NETGEAR India And SAARC. “We’re very pleased to team with the Arcus Global team, a recognized innovator in video surveillance, to offer SMBs a seamless, cost-effective solution to this challenge.”
Milestone Arcus on ReadyNAS is a world-class IP video surveillance solution for small and medium-size businesses, ranging from a family retail store with eight cameras to a large residential apartment building with 100 cameras. This unique, ultra-scalable solution offers total protection of business assets and can be set up and in operation within minutes, without additional training.
In addition to performing the video management functions, the ReadyNAS continues to operate as a standard network attached storage solution. Its full ReadyNAS OS feature set includes ReadyDR™ (disaster recovery) so businesses can meet the most stringent legal and commercial requirements for video data retention.
