Choose the cloud model that best meets your organizations needs Federation-as-a-Service enables organizations to implement a hybrid cloud deployment leveraging their existing Security Center system and infrastructure, or choose a fully cloud-based system where all servers and video recordings are hosted. In a hybrid configuration, the head-end management and Federation functionality is maintained in the cloud, enabling the system to seamlessly receive the latest Security Center software updates, without additional configuration by the user. Authorized users can access Federated devices and events from all remote sites, and new systems can seamlessly be added with little configuration. By leveraging Stratocast-connected cameras alongside FaaS, organizations can also deploy a fully cloud-based solution, where all applications, servers, and archives are maintained in the cloud. Ideal for distributed organizations with a small number of cameras at each site, this strategy allows them to eliminate the servers required to manage and operate their video surveillance system, reduce local system maintenance, while still monitoring all cameras from the Security Center client application. © Genetec Inc., 2017.

FAAS_FN1EN Federation-as-a-Service architecture With real-time and automated synchronization of information, FaaS provides organizations with a unified view of cameras, doors, automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) units, intrusion panels, and all related events and alarms. Greater purchase flexibility Federation-as-a-Service enables organizations to shift the cost of their Federation system from a lump sum investment to a subscription-based service. Rather than purchasing all necessary software licenses and hardware at the deployment of the system, FaaS is billed as annual service.
