Origin of Cloudstructure
Cloudastructure Inc. was formed in 2013 with the merger of two pioneer companies – Connexed Systems, Inc which was one of the first companies to leverage the cloud infrastructure for delivering a cloud based video surveillance as a service (VSaaS) and Reach Systems, Inc which pioneered cloud based access control as a service (ACaaS). The merger of these two companies was a visionary move recognizing the synergies of customer value with the bundling of video surveillance and access control delivered as a cloud based service. The Cloudastructure has further expanded the solution offerings with the Cloudastructure IoT Gateway to create a web of rule based intelligent network of devices (things) and deliver custom designed IoT solutions for the customer.
