MILWAUKEE – Johnson Controls has announced that its flagship access control and event management system Tyco Software House C•CURE 9000 is supported on infrastructure as a service (IaaS), which the firm says enables customers to take advantage of the many benefits of cloud computing.

With C•CURE 9000 deployable in the cloud, integrators and end users can leverage cloud service providers such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform.

Johnson Controls says that as organizations identify and migrate critical application workloads to the cloud, physical security operations are able to increase C•CURE 9000 application availability by leveraging redundancy and disaster recovery infrastructure that geographically extends well beyond their on-premise constraints.

“Companies are aggressively moving to the cloud to maximize their IT spend while improving their agility to respond to business needs and market changes,” said Jason Ouellette, general manager of Enterprise Access & Video Solutions, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls, in a prepared statement. “When moving infrastructure to the cloud, learning how to provision the right type and size of resources required for customer specific environments is critical to optimize performance and cost. Customers who take this approach in their C•CURE 9000 cloud migration planning can easily avoid overspending while maintaining flexibility to quickly scale resources based on actual need.”

The firm says cloud solutions are an integral part of the strategic focus of the Tyco Access Control and Video Solutions unit of Johnson Controls, along with artificial intelligence, unification and cybersecurity.
