Sage Hosting is the process of installing and setting up licensed desktop versions of Sage applications and their associated data on to virtual cloud servers for anywhere, anytime accessibility. The unified cloud platform allows you and all other authorized team members to access and work on the same hosted application with the same features and functionalities offering unique cross device compatibility with multi-user support. Moving your Sage applications to SSAE-18 certified data centers ensures all-round protection to the application and sensitive business information across multiple environments while providing absolute visibility to user, file and folder activities.
Cloud-based Sage applications come loaded with adequate cloud computing resources including vRAM, vCPU and SSD-based Storage to meet the hosting requirements of modern SMEs. In fact, remote servers are just as scalable, allowing you to add or remove cloud resources as and when required for seamless usability. Add value to your business operations with time-saving automation, remote access and scalability features. Stringent security policies followed by cloud service providers go a long way in identifying and mitigating risks like security threats, suspicious user behavior, ransomware, malware etc.
For small businesses, efficient management of budget and resources is the key to expansion and growth. And this is where cloud-based Sage software turns out to be the most innovative approach as it enables them to leverage the same technology solutions as large enterprises at a fraction of the actual cost. It saves you from the hassles of setting up and maintaining physical servers in house while giving them absolute freedom to access and use the same software that you understand and use.

The fundamental difference between standalone desktop-based accounting and hosted Sage application is the way the software is deployed and where it resides. Traditionally, Sage applications were installed locally on office desktops with internal IT teams being responsible to manage the tech operations while cloud-based Sage applications are installed on the cloud service provider’s servers and accessed remotely through RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol).
Along with the hosted app availability and accessibility, there are a few things that make them different, such as cost of ownership, cost of operations, software update management, add-ons integrations and additional freebies that you get with Cloud-based Sage ERP and CRM solutions.
