WD, a Western Digital company and a worldwide leader in storage solutions, and Milestone Systems, the security industry leader in video management software, recently announced its partnership to deliver video surveillance solutions to businesses and consumers.

Milestone Arcus Surveillance software will be available on WD's My Cloud Business Series [1] network-attached storage (NAS) systems with the new My Cloud OS 3 operating system and is expected to be available on other My Cloud systems, such as the My Cloud Expert Series, in the future.

Milestone Arcus is a video surveillance platform designed to be embedded in hardware devices, such as compatible WD My Cloud NAS systems, to deliver customised, market-ready solutions. Integration of Milestone Arcus Surveillance software into My Cloud OS 3 enables users to transform their versatile My Cloud Business Series NAS systems into networked video recording systems for their offices or homes. By simply downloading the Milestone Arcus Surveillance software through the My Cloud App Store, users can install up to 16 cameras, with the first two camera licences free on My Cloud Business Series products. Additional camera licences will be available from selected WD authorised distributors.

"Technology advances are enabling video surveillance to be broadly accessible to businesses and individuals across the globe," said Sven Rathjen, vice president of marketing for WD's Content Solutions business. "Together, WD and Milestone are focused on making video surveillance easy with a solution they can quickly set up and rely on for years. This is one of many applications available on My Cloud NAS systems, including home automation, media streaming and backup solutions."

"Milestone is proud to partner with WD to offer a video surveillance solution for My Cloud NAS systems," said Lars Nordenlund, vice president of Incubation and Ventures at Milestone Systems. "WD customers can now take advantage of the simple setup with automatic camera discovery, intuitive interface, remote viewing, mobile access and other monitoring features in Milestone Arcus software."

WD's My Cloud Business Series NAS systems are available through select distribution partners, e-tailers and direct market resellers worldwide. The new My Cloud OS 3 operating system will be available to My Cloud NAS system as an update.
