What's the best way to leverage Cloud360?

The right answer: Whichever way works best for you.

You can deploy Cloud360 on-premise or subscribe to Cloud360 in a Software as a Service (SaaS) model. You can get it with Managed Services or without. You can even decide how much you want us to manage — maybe just the operating system and services, maybe also key enterprise applications (like SharePoint, SAP and Oracle) — or maybe the complete environment including the OS and all custom and enterprise applications.

You can also mix and match these deployment options on different virtual machines. Usage is metered based on number of virtual machines used.

Subscription Licenses

You can leverage Cloud360 two ways: deployed on-premise or by subscription in a Software as a Service (SaaS) model. With either option, costs are calculated on a pay-as-you-use model based on the number of virtual machines in use.



Deploy Cloud360 on-premise if you prefer complete behind-the-firewall control of your IT management infrastructure.



Subscribe to Cloud360 as a service if you prefer to avoid the work of installing, configuring and maintaining the software yourself.
