PROMISE Technology Partners With VMS Vendors to Ship Free Software Trials With Its Vess A2000 NVR Storage Appliance

Partnership With AxxonSoft, Milestone Systems, OnSSI and SeeTec Reduces Complexity for Customers Migrating to IP-Based NVR Systems

HSINCHU, TAIWAN and SON, THE NETHERLANDS--(Marketwired - Dec 9, 2014) - PROMISE Technology Inc., a recognized global leader in the storage industry, today announced a partnership with AxxonSoft, Milestone Systems, OnSSI and SeeTec to ship free trial versions of the world's leading Video Management Software (VMS) when customers purchase the PROMISE Vess A2000 Series NVR storage appliance in the EMEA region. The VMS provided are all certified with the Vess A2000 Series, allowing integrators and end users to run the software with their PROMISE video surveillance solution with complete confidence. The VMS trial versions are conveniently shipped on a ready-to-install USB thumb drive with the Vess A2000 Series.

The partnership is ideal for users who have previously deployed analog DVR systems and are now planning to use an IP-based NVR system. Users can test a range of VMS for free to determine which software solution with the Vess A2000 Series best meets the needs of their deployment. Additionally, the partnership makes it more convenient to use the Vess A2000 Series in security projects while also making it easier for users to switch to IP-based surveillance solutions.

Additional Benefits of the VMS Trial Program with PROMISE's Vess A2000:

  • Free VMS trials are valid for up to 30 days
  • VMS trials support 8 to 16 cameras
  • Vess NVR appliances and VMS solutions have been tested extensively and are fully certified, ensuring interoperability and optimal performance
  • Users can test which VMS best fits their deployment and then purchase licenses from the VMS vendor

"With video surveillance becoming increasingly important to businesses and organizations, many customers are making the migration from analog to IP-based solutions to take advantage of better image quality, easier scalability, improved reliability and other benefits," said John van den Elzen, managing director, PROMISE Technology EMEA. "The partnership between PROMISE and many of the top VMS providers reduces the complexity of migrating to IP-based security solutions and makes it easier for customers to deploy a complete solution, including the Vess A2000 NVR appliance and industry-leading software that provides the capabilities to protect what's important to their business."

How it Works

  • Users plug in the USB drive provided and install the VMS of choice - AxxonSoft Axxon Next, Milestone XProtect®, OnSSI Ocularis, or SeeTec Cayuga
  • Users can purchase more valid camera licenses as needed from the VMS vendor
