These days when we go to our customers we hear other companies using
“Cloud” being used interchangeably with the ERP being hosted online.
Though for a small business setup it would not mean much difference but
for medium scale business, it means a lot.
Okay, so what is cloud ?
Cloud is basically an operating system which utilises the resources on
many other computers / servers. Traditionally incase of standard server
installation, you need to either upgrade your hardware or change your
server when you overrun the capacity of that particular server. This
means downtime, risk of data corruption etc. This is where Cloud
computing comes in. When your hardware resources become less, you can
just add another server instance for any particular hardware
requirement. Be it processor, memory, storage space. The best part, its
all automatic, the operating system manages it all.
Cloud and the ERP
Once the ERP is implemented in your organisation, it becomes the
backbone of your organisation. ERP being down even for few hours would
mean, hundreds of your employees sitting idea. When you upgrade your
servers, your ERP can be down from few hours to few days depending upon
the size of the data. This would mean a complete paralysis of your
organisation during this period. Cloud ERP helps here because as soon as
your run out of some hardware capacity, you can add another instance
and the best of all , it is scalable.
KKE Manage ERP can be installed on Public, Local or Hybrid Clouds. It can also be installed on standard servers.
