You must have heard about SaaS (Software-as-a-Service), but have you have heard about VaaS (Video-as-a-Service)? SAC, as a full-service systems integration company, is constantly testing new technologies and devices. We specialize in integrating various technology platforms to provide unique solutions for our customers for a wide variety of use-cases.
What is VaaS?
In the SaaS model, an application runs at a hosted facility operated by the service provider. The servers, software, and database are part of the IT infrastructure at the hosted facility. The front-end runs at the customer’s facility and the customer pays a monthly subscription for use of the application.
The VaaS model is similar in that the camera system is at the customer location, and the video data storage and infrastructure is at a hosted facility. Customers access their video via a web browser (from anywhere with internet access), smart device, or dedicated terminal. This arrangement greatly simplifies the customer’s local IT infrastructure, provides flexibility, and is more secure as the video data is stored at SAC’s secure UL Listed facility. VaaS can be used for video surveillance or video conferencing/collaboration applications.
