A security company contacted me thorough Upwork, searching for support on a brand new installation of an Axis Camera Station System on a educational institution. This company, Coyote Cabling from New Mexico, US, was on charge of a 52 camera installation, with an option to add 32 existing cameras on a later stage.
After a research, they decided to use Axis S1148 servers, which really are re-branded Dell servers. The S1148 comes with a ready to use Windows Server 2012 OS, and with the Axis Camera Station preinstalled. This vendor supported hardware allowed to reduce licensing costs, because they are included on the server price, and avoid any incompatibilities
