Cloud hosting offers a significant cost savings to an organization by eliminating on-premise hardware and hardware management.
There are many layers of security available for protecting application access and data storage, making the cloud hosting solution a very safe one.
There is much greater ease in scaling infrastructure to meet increased or decreased business needs.
On Premise Hosting
Client institutions might also opt for on-premise hosting. In this hosting method, the hardware like servers etc. will have to be purchased and managed by the institution itself. Scholar as well as its components will be hosted on the local server. This method requires the Institution to manage the resources and ensure that the servers are maintained and are up during all the times. Other key aspects such as data security and backup are also handled by the Institution itself.
