Cloud Based Hosting Subscription or On-premise Standalone?
These days, the question of on-premises standalone versus cloud environments often comes up. Which type of computing solution will work the best for you?
Cloud adoption is ticking upward at an ever-increasing rate, and businesses are taking advantage of the benefits that storing data and applications in off-premises environments can provide. There are some companies that still prefer to deploy their software solutions on-premises as opposed to the cloud.
Both approaches offer their own unique advantages, but it may not be easy to distinguish which would be the best for you without the proper consideration.
- Cloud-based solution is hosted on the CSI servers and accessed through a thin client software. No need to purchase and maintain on-premise server.
- On-premise standalone is installed locally, on a company’s own computers and servers.Cloud-based software is priced under a monthly or annual subscription basis, with no recurring fees for support, updates. Minimum initial investment.
- Cloud-based requires fast, reliable and stable internet connection. Without internet, the software can’t operate. Minimum 1MB download/upload speed.On-premise software is priced under a one-time license fee. There are recurring annual fees for support, and updates. The low entry cost of cloud-based software—compared with upfront license fees—has contributed to its widespread adoption.
- Cloud-based offers an effective way to run your business better than ever before. The valuable data is protected from natural disasters, fire, and theft. In addition, Cloud-based gives customers peace of mind from the complexities of managing and maintaining the computers and data. The focus should be on running the business and not managing the computer system!
- Cloud-based software can be accessed from anywhere, using any device like PC, Smart Phone, and Tablet. Cloud-based offers Web site and App integration for pickup/delivery service or customer account lookup or payment.
- Cloud-based is ideal for multi-store operation. Cloud software can reflect and update data in real-time, so information such as productivity, production, inventory and sales are always up-to-date. This is quite powerful, especially for larger operation. Having up-to-the minute information on how your business is doing will enable you to get a more accurate view of store performance and help you better understand your business.
- Cloud-based offers much easier operation and control when sharing customers’ profile, price list, employee payroll, coupons, and etc., across multiple locations. Cloud-based is a must, if you are planning to implement auto assembly system. Auto Assembly System reduces human error, increases efficiency and saves $1000 of dollars in labor cost
