Milestone Systems announced a new global program for hardware partners in the Milestone community. This open program enables hardware manufacturers to ship their servers, clients and storage solutions powered by Milestone XProtect software.  
Milestone Channel Partners and customers will benefit from tested and validated hardware configurations from leading hardware manufacturers. With XProtect Essential+ preloaded on the hardware, the System Builder Program enables easy deployment of the Milestone VMS with just a few clicks, or rapid upgrade to one of the more advanced editions through a Milestone channel partner.
Milestone supports the VMS software, while the hardware partners joining the System Builder Program will leverage their existing support structures. This initiative extends the market reach for all community partners beyond the markets Milestone already targets with the Husky NVR offerings.
“The System Builder Program is all about ease of deployment,” said Bjørn Skou Eilertsen, CTO of Milestone Systems. “Customers can now get the XProtect experience on their hardware of choice in a few clicks. Nobody else is doing this,” “Customers will also be able to easily enter the world of intelligent video solutions by tapping into the rich spectrum of add-ons from Milestone Solution Partners.”
