Cloud Archives

Cloud Archives establishes a bridge between your on-premise Security Center Archivers or Auxiliary Archivers and the cloud to automatically upload video archives.

Cloud Archives performs the following tasks:
  • Identifies the video archives that must be uploaded to the cloud.
  • Encrypts the archives with the configured password.
    NOTE: Video archives stored in the cloud are always encrypted.
  • Automatically uploads the archives to the cloud.
  • Downloads archives from the cloud when playback requests are received.
  • Decrypts archives for playback by Security Desk.
Security Center operators can seamlessly access video from Cloud Archives, allowing them to quickly view and search archived video, whether located on premise or in the cloud.
