Deploy Milestone XProtect® worldwide and scale dynamically
with minimum hardware and maintenance


XProtect on AWS (Amazon Web Services) offers a new way of designing XProtect systems. It reduces hardware on-premises and leverages AWS Infrastructure and Platform as a Service to remove the friction involved in setting up and maintaining on-site VMS systems. The result is a highly flexible VMS solution deployed globally, with elastic compute, storage, and networking, that adjusts easily to the distributed needs of the business.
