Network video cloud storage for AXIS Camera Station

Axis Communications empowers organizations with cutting edge IP video technology, helping to provide cost effective safety and security solutions. These intelligent video surveillance cameras and analytical applications are capturing more evidence than ever, causing an increase in storage capacity requirements. The demand for high capacity storage that is fast, secure, and affordable is greater than ever. Many small to medium sized organizations don’t have the resources or expertise to manage exponential increases of video data while trying to combat ever-evolving security threats. By leveraging a combination of on-prem and cloud technology, Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage with AXIS Camera Station provides a low cost, highly secure repository that supports high camera counts, high-definition resolutions, high frame rates, and long retention periods. This architecture is designed to provide high reliability and availability to meet the demands of video surveillance deployments.

Wasabi, the preferred choice for video archive, backup, and storage builds strong alignment with Axis Communications, the world’s leading IP video brand, as Axis seeks to provide cloud storage connectivity to AXIS Camera Station Clients.

Combining Intelligent Video Monitor Technology with Bottomless Cloud Storage

AXIS Camera Station is powerful and easy to use so anyone can manage the system, handle incidents, quickly find and export high definition evidence and manage physical access. The operator interface includes all key functions including live view, investigation, export, video redaction for protection of third-party privacy, as well as access management. AXIS Camera Station allows you to build a scalable solution that covers all your surveillance needs. Now with the ability to move video to Wasabi, the amount of footage that you can store is not limited to the size of the on-premises recording database. With Wasabi, you are able to scale incrementally as your retention policy requires.

To connect AXIS Camera Station and Wasabi solution together, a third party file system layer from Tiger Technology known as Surveillance Bridge is used to connect the AXIS Camera Station file system and Wasabi S3 interface. Surveillance Bridge is a solution that works with both live recording and archive drives. Surveillance Bridge automatically moves less frequently accessed video from your local drive to Wasabi. Axis Camera Station is totally unaware and continues to work as usual as all data still appears local to the VMS. Surveillance Bridge seamlessly retrieves video to Axis Camera Station from Wasabi with the click of a mouse, so users can be confident they will always have access to their recorded data. This provides a uniform shared, global file system namespace across any Axis device connected to Wasabi. From a high-level perspective, it functions like a network attached storage or file server, but both the clients and data repository can be located anywhere. All authorized AXIS Camera Station devices can see and access the same shared data set, irrespective of their location.

Whether you store archived recordings locally or on Wasabi, you can always use AXIS Camera Station to view them.

Video Storage Costs That Are Predictable

From a cost perspective, AXIS Camera Station combined with Wasabi hot cloud storage provides the most affordable cloud storage environment for high quality video surveillance infrastructures, including high-definition and megapixel environments. While it’s true that digital video consumes a significant amount of space, it’s not so much the storage footprint that makes cloud storage impractical for security and surveillance companies, but rather the egress fees charged to customers to access their stored recordings. With Wasabi there are no fees for egress or API requests. There is only one line item on your bill and that is for storage used.

Safe, Secure, and Tamper-Proof

Wasabi is deployed in fully secure and redundant data centers that are certified for SOC-2 and ISO 27001 compliance. The service is architected in accordance with industry-best security models and design practices. Organizations can configure their individual video files or storage buckets to be immutable for a user defined retention period (in increments of days, weeks, months or years). Designated video files or files written to that bucket cannot be deleted or altered in any way, by anyone, throughout its storage lifetime. Immutability can help with compliance for state and local government regulations.
