European cloud data residency guarantee gives Morphean a competitive advantage
Fribourg, September 20th 2016 – Interoute, owner operator of a global cloud services platform and one of Europe’s largest networks, today announced that Morphean, a European leader in Video as a Service, is hosting its management platform for content analysis videos and incident detection in Interoute Virtual Data Centre.
Rodrigue Zbinden, CEO of Morphean commented: "Most of our competitors are American and even some European competitors often host their data in the US cloud across the Atlantic, so we decided to differentiate ourselves by giving our customers the choice to host their data with a European cloud with local European data centres. This assures our customers that their data will stay within the borders of the elected European countries."
Mr Zbinden goes on to say: “Interoute is present in almost every country we cover, it has relentless security assurances and is recognized by major consulting firms such as Frost & Sullivan and Gartner and we believe it has unbeatable performance in Europe."
Currently, Morphean already hosts its VIDEOPROTECTOR platform in Interoute Virtual Data Centres in Paris, Geneva, Frankfurt and London. It is available in SaaS mode for its customers (CCTV companies, physical security device installers and service providers) who use the solution or resell it as a white labelled solution. VIDEOPROTECTOR is much more than just a hosted video surveillance platform. It offers the best and easiest solution to monitor, protect or analyse shops, stations, small offices, buildings or industries. Its unique active learning video analysis technology scans human behaviour to detect incidents or report business activities.
Rodrigue Zbinden, CEO of Morphean, outlines the company’s ambitions: “By the end of 2017 we will manage 15,000 cameras per data centre, which we predict will grow to 50,000 per data centre by the end of 2018. We are experiencing strong growth in Europe and Interoute has the scale and ability to support us in this adventure. As a leader and innovator in the VSaaS (Videosurveillance as a Service) market, we are also working on big data analysis that will demand additional processing power and unparalleled connectivity and we know that Interoute already supports such projects successfully. Compared to other providers, Interoute covers more countries where we operate, has the high levels of security and technology, unparalleled performance and does not charge us for the inflows and outflows of data, and that's very important in video!"
Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, said: "We are delighted to support Morphean in its ambitious projects. Our geographic coverage, our network performance and flexibility of our pricing model provide a perfect fit for Morphean. Thanks to our integrated cloud platform built into our network, Morphean’s customers in several countries can take advantage of the very low latency between our data centres, in addition to physical security and guaranteed data residency."
