Impossible Cloud Partners with Tiger Surveillance, Launches Impossible Surveillance Cloud
Combination offers effortless, cost-effective, GDPR-compliant solution to manage and protect video surveillance data
Hamburg, Germany – 8 Febuary, 2023 – Impossible Cloud, the revolutionary platform offering decentralized, enterprise-grade cloud solutions, and Tiger Surveillance, a leader in seamless data management & protection for video surveillance, have announced a groundbreaking joint solution targeting the escalating need across Europe and globally for affordable video surveillance data storage.
The new Impossible Surveillance Cloud combines the seamless hybrid data management capabilities of Surveillance Bridge by Tiger Surveillance with Impossible Cloud’s infinitely scalable hot storage. This provides a secure, lightning-fast, and fully compliant video management and storage solution that is 80% less expensive than standard cloud services.
The solution can be installed easily with any video management system (VMS) in minutes to connect local drives to the cloud for unlimited storage extension and disaster recovery. This hybrid cloud environment is equipped to meet EU privacy standards by utilizing Impossible Cloud’s geo-fencing technology and network of top-tier data centers in Germany and across Europe.
“The surge in video surveillance data, driven by higher resolutions, longer retention periods, and more cameras, demands innovative storage solutions. Local hardware can quickly become overwhelmed, while current cloud services fall short in cost-effectiveness and GDPR compliance,” said Kai Wawrzinek, CEO and Co-founder, Impossible Cloud, “Impossible Cloud’s decentralized architecture and European data centers, paired with Tiger Surveillance’s advanced surveillance software, provide a superior solution to meet the diverse legal and operational needs.”
With Impossible Surveillance Cloud, businesses can scale data storage on demand without the need for a disruptive overhaul, ensuring IT operations remain efficient and robust.
Because the solution enables organizations to store data on premises and in the cloud, it can enable better resilience against system outages. Additionally, due to its decentralized architecture, multilayer encryption, erasure coding and access management, Impossible Surveillance Cloud ensures data immutably to prevent data loss as well as fortified protection from all ransomware and cyber-attacks.
“Our partnership with Impossible Cloud strengthens our presence in the video surveillance market, especially in Europe, which has strict data sovereignty laws,” said Lance Kelson, CEO, Tiger Surveillance. “Surveillance Bridge empowers users to seamlessly integrate cloud storage into any video surveillance system. By combining Surveillance Bridge with Impossible Cloud, organizations can instantly tap into secure, affordable and GDPR-compliant cloud storage.”
VMSs today are some of the highest producers of data – generating an estimated 400 petabytes each day. Meanwhile, the cost of cloud storage is rising rapidly as data volumes grow: 94% of IT leaders reported spending more on cloud storage in 2023, and the costs of storing data with major cloud providers has risen by as much as 50% since 2022.
To keep surveillance data storage affordable, Impossible Surveillance Cloud has transparent on-demand pricing, with no egress or hidden fees. Additionally, the solution can be purchased with discounted pricing via Impossible Cloud’s Partner Program, designed to help resellers seamlessly implement Impossible Cloud’s solutions in enterprise environments.
In March 2023, Impossible Cloud announced a €7 million seed round co-led by HV Capital and 1kx, joined by Protocol Labs, TS Ventures and very early Ventures. In April 2023 the company announced the general availability of its enterprise-grade, native cloud storage solution delivering all the capabilities of traditional cloud storage along with the key benefits of web3 technology.
