Cloud/ Application Hosting vs. Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)
SWK offers two types of cloud hosting solutions. Our Secure Cloud Hosting excels at hosting individual accounting and ERP applications such as Sage 100cloud and Intuit QuickBooks. Our other cloud solution is Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) which is a more robust offering for complex ERP products, such as Acumatica, and provide a sound platform for hosting multiple business applications that include your ERP plus process automation solutions, and much more. Additionally, IaaS is designed to replace some or all of your physical on premise infrastructure, moving your server hardware functionality into a virtual environment, freeing you up from costly hardware upgrades as well as housing other critical IT infrastructure needs in the cloud.

Who is Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) for?
Businesses with addons or multiple applications

If you have an extensive or urgent need to upgrade your IT infrastructure because it’s outdated and insufficient to meet your software and application requirements
If you’re experiencing rapid growth and your company and headcount is growing or is forecasted to increase and technical scalability and per user cost using on-premise hardware will be an issues
