Next-generation physical security applications have high performance requirements that on-premise hardware struggles to meet. Cloud deployments are the solution to improving building security with new technology while reducing costs.
Security software applications such as Video Management Systems (VMS) and Access Control solutions are traditionally deployed on on-premise servers. These workloads have low performance needs, making on-premise a good fit.
New technologies like drones, multi-site deployments, building automation, and artificial intelligence increase the effectiveness of existing on-premise solutions, but come with high performance requirements and increased complexity.
On-premise servers are effective for existing workloads, but struggle with next-generation technology. Locating new security applications on the cloud solves resolves the challenges of supporting these new workloads while virtually eliminating the up-front cost associated with purchasing servers.
