Von Kempf wanted out of the server management game, so he began research into cloud-based video surveillance services. He found Arcules online and was quickly connected by his account manager to several local resellers. Washington-based security experts Differential Networks stood out from the pack by immediately stepping up and streamlining STG’s current solution free of charge.
“Differential Networks went out of their way to do right by me, and I really needed a partner like that,” says von Kempf. In anticipation of moving to the cloud, STG upgraded its infrastructure to gigabit fiber internet. STG also trialed several cloud-based solutions before selecting the Arcules Cloud Platform, which integrates with their existing onsite cameras.
“We tried a ton of other big-name video surveillance web services, but they were all so complex that it took a computer hacker to do anything with them,” says von Kempf. “Ultimately, I chose Arcules because they were easy. They work well with my existing cameras out of the box, and they support a wide variety of vendors, so it was easy to visualize how they could help me grow in the future. It was a no brainer.”
