On-Premise or Cloud Hosting?

On-Premise or Cloud hosting is a big decision right now but we always deliver the right solution for your business. Here’s a quick overview to the key options available. Microsoft Dynamics has been built on the principle of providing small to mid-sized businesses with choice. Of course, as a leading Microsoft Gold Partner we can deliver a wide range of flexible options, including hybrid solutions.

On-Premise Hosting: enables installed software to run on the premises of an organisation or could refer to a dedicated outsourced hosting at a remote facility.
Cloud Hosting (Online): delivered via multiple inter-connected servers (the cloud), online, as software as a service (SAAS) offering. Microsoft Azure is a portfolio of joined-up cloud applications used to deploy and manage software through a network of Microsoft data centres.


In the Cloud Hosting

Businesses are increasingly looking to the cloud:

Can connect familiar collaboration tools

Perfect for organisations that see regular changes in demand — scale up and down

Give employees the ability to work with mobility

Makes it simple to deliver joined-up business processes across departments

Simpler and lower cost than supporting and upgrading on-premise systems

Modular, pay-as-you-go pricing is better for controlling costs

Delivers integrated, single-view, real-time reporting


On-Premise Hosting

There are still a lot of reasons for staying with on-premise hosting:

Support of multiple in-house applications and bespoke solutions

Migration cost and transformation effort

Regulatory and compliance issues

Cloud may take control away at the operational level

Intellectual Property control

Security: on-premise is viewed as safer

Opex vs Capex
