Choosing the right deployment method for your surveillance program:
In this approach the solution is deployed and operated on your client environment. This can be either in your own hardware or on a third party cloud or hosting provider.
In this approach the hosting and operation is handled by the vendor. There are two options for hosting:
1. Cloud Based
2. Vendor Data Center
The Managed Service offering allows a similar level of bespoke solution flexibility as the self-hosted approach, the difference being the vendor is hosting and operating.
Surveillance as a Service
This is similar to the Managed Service offering. However, in this deployment method, the vendor offers standard architecture, alerting, reporting, and modules. This is a more streamlined approach which allows lower implementation cost and faster time to market, but with less customizability.
