Get the best of Edge and Cloud Storage by utilizing both options at different sites. Work with Arcules to customize a mix of Edge and Cloud ARC gateways to direct critical devices to constantly push data to the Cloud, while other devices locally store the data.

Best for:

  • A mix of remote or branch locations with low bandwidth
  • Sites without bandwidth limitations

Cloud video storage is constantly streaming video to the Cloud with low-latency live viewing and lighting fast remote playback.

Best for:

  • Sites without bandwidth limitations
  • Cloud-based security and business intelligence video analytics
  • Highly secure and redundant Cloud storage
    Reducing hardware at each site

Bandwidth Comparison

~ 0 Mbps
Per Channel

Video is constantly uploaded to the Cloud, resulting in higher bandwidth consumption.Outbound bandwidth is approximately 1-2 Mbps per channel based on 1080p, 12fps, 30% motion.

Edge Cloud stores video locally on the ARC appliance, pushing metadata to the Cloud. Remote view and playback from edge to cloud to you. Setup, manage, operate and view through the Arcules Cloud.

Best for sites:

  • With limited outbound bandwidth
  • With high camera counts and limited outbound bandwidth
  • That need to prioritize bandwidth during business hours for other business systems

Bandwidth Comparison

~ 0 Kbps
Per Channel

Recorded video is stored on the gateway with metadata (Recording and Motion Data) uploaded to the Cloud. Outbound bandwidth is approximately 10-50 Kbps per channel.



When deploying across numerous distributed sites, the cost of high availability outbound bandwidth can overwhelm IT budgets.

Overcoming it

Store video on site and only consume outbound bandwidth when viewing video on demand, significantly reducing the need for expensive bandwidth costs.


I only have enough bandwidth to stream a few channels at once.

Overcoming it

Store video on site and only consume outbound bandwidth when viewing video on demand. Archive footage of important video in the Cloud on demand after an investigation.


I have low bandwidth constraints, but still want to use Cloud for ongoing investigations and archival.

Overcoming it

Arcules allows customers to archive video in the Cloud for long-term storage.


I have limited available outbound bandwidth to support high camera counts at a site.

Overcoming it

Store video on site and only consume outbound bandwidth when viewing video on demand.


I have limited bandwidth at some sites, but others have enough bandwidth to stream video to the cloud.

Overcoming it

The flexibility to have Edge Storage at one site and Cloud Storage at another provides the best solution for your organization.

You can even mix Edge and Cloud Storage at one location to have some cameras streaming constantly, while others store locally.


My school district has high camera counts at the high school and junior high with limited outbound bandwidth.

Overcoming it

Arcules brings the flexibility of Edge Storage at the high school and junior high, while offering the flexibility of Cloud Storage at the schools with lower camera counts and enough outbound bandwidth to stream to the Cloud for storage. Arcules provides different storage options at the Edge based on camera count and retention time.


I have enough bandwidth at my corporate headquarters to support cloud storage but I need to prioritize my bandwidth at my retail locations for business-critical systems such as POS and other technology.

Overcoming it

Use Edge Cloud at your bandwidth-limited retail locations and only use bandwidth to view live or recorded video. Utilize Cloud Archival for incident and case management on demand.
