Self-Hosted vs. SaaS – Which One is Right for Your Fund Control Deployment
Posted on July 12, 2022
Both self-hosed and Software as a Service (SaaS) are both viable options to operate Fund Control on. The right choice varies from business to business, it all depends on a couple factors. We’ll break down the two options to help you make the right decision for your company.
Differences in accessibility
Saas solutions are always connected directly into the internet. This allows the business consistent access to their tools and services anywhere. It is a design system that grants the employees to work remotely from any device that is connected to it. This is typically why companies that work remote are usually SaaS as it allows work outside of the office.
Accessibility can be a bit limiting as it only runs through your own company’s servers. Although, if you and your employees primarily work at the office, self-hosted servers are still a viable option. Both have pros and cons when it comes to accessibility.
Self-hosted deployment has the slight advantage when it comes to keeping your data secure. It is less likely that there will be a breach since the data being stored is on your own local servers and away from the internet.
With SaaS, your slightly more vulnerable as your data is passing through the internet to your service provider’s servers. It comes down to how secure their servers are so it could be an important question to ask when discussing services. However, SaaS takes the responsibility of managing all of the data yourself or hiring IT services.
Here at Fund Control, we pride ourselves on the security of our servers. We take protecting your data extremely seriously.
Ease of installation
The deployment of SaaS is easy and quick. All you need is an internet connection, any web browser, and an account, then it is as simple as logging on through their portal.
If you decide to go the self-hosted route, that is a bit different than SaaS. We’ll offer you all the support you will need to get your new self-hosted Fund Control services up an running.
