Our standard recording provision is stored in a Private Amazon S3 Bucket.

The data in this bucket is Encrypted & anonymised. The User access to the stored content is for the user that has initiated the recording only, and that access is through our platform.

We will be able to send the RTMP stream which currently points towards the recording storage to a customer receiver at somepoint soon & this can be looked at on a specific case basis.

Details below for you:-

Simply Video uses a highly durable storage infrastructure designed for mission-critical and primary data storage. Objects are redundantly stored on multiple devices across multiple facilities in our Private Amazon S3 instance. To help better ensure data durability, Amazon S3 PUT and PUT Object copy operations synchronously store your data across multiple facilities. After the objects are stored, Amazon S3 maintains their durability by quickly detecting and repairing any lost redundancy.

Simply Video uses the following features:

Backed with the Amazon S3 Service Level Agreement
Designed to provide 99.999999999% durability and 99.99% availability of objects over a given year
Designed to sustain the concurrent loss of data in two facilities

In the Amazon S3 Simply Video further protects your data using versioning. You can use versioning to preserve, retrieve, and restore every version of every object that is stored in our bucket.


Data protection refers to protecting data while in-transit (as it travels Between Simply Video & our storage) and at rest (while it is stored on disks in Amazon S3 data centres). We protect data in transit using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or client-side encryption.

We utilise a combination of the following options for protecting data at rest in Amazon S3:

Server-Side Encryption – Request Amazon S3 to encrypt your object before saving it on disks in its data centres and then decrypt it when you download the objects.
Client-Side Encryption – Encrypt data client-side and upload the encrypted data to Amazon S3. In this case, you manage the encryption process, the encryption keys, and related tools.

Identity Management & Access

By default, all Simply Video resources—buckets, objects, and related sub resources (for example, lifecycle configuration and website configuration)—are private: only the resource owner, or a SV Senior platform engineer, can access the resource.

Simply Video access policy options broadly categorized as resource-based policies and user policies. Access policies are attached to our resources (buckets and objects) are referred to as resource-based policies.

We also use a network access control list (ACL) - only has a single access account and all access to this it is strictly monitored.

For example, bucket policies and access control lists (ACLs) are resource-based policies.

We also attach access policies to users in our organisation. These are called user policies.

All public access is off by default. Only access via SSH and secured using AES-256 bit encryption
