What is needed?

From LucidLink Corp.

  • LucidLink Filespaces
LucidLink enables XProtect to directly record and stream video data on-demand to and from object storage.

LucidLink is a distributed streaming filesystem for object storage that allows true read and write access to object storage as if it were a local disk.

LucidLink integrates with the host operating system as a file system mount point.

To use LucidLink with Milestone XProtect, first create and initialize a LucidLink Filespace.

The Filespace is directly associated with an object storage bucket. This can be any S3-compatible object storage or Azure Blob.

To connect to Milestone XProtect you need to download and install the LucidLink Client on the same machine where it is running.


LucidLink Filespaces offers best-in-class “zero-knowledge” encryption, so data is secure from end-to-end, at rest and in flight, with only the data owner holding the encryption keys – LucidLink nor the storage provider can access the data. This degree of encryption ensures video footage is not only secure but tamper-proof, even while viewing and prevents modifications and deletions.
