How to Deploy Microsoft Dynamics GP
In the past there was only one way to deploy Microsoft Dynamics GP – on a server at your location. However, now you have choices including the traditional on-premises model or a hosted model. Each has their own advantages and disadvantages and price points that you need to consider based on your company requirements.
Purchase the software and deploy at your location on your own server. You can choose to install on individual workstations or connect via a Terminal Services or Citrix connection which allows remote access.
Pros: You maintain control of your data at all times and you are not dependent on an internet connection. Usually, this option offers the lowest Total Cost of Ownership.
Cons: You are responsible for all server maintenance, backups and other IT services. Software and hardware purchase can mean a large initial investment of funds.
Hosted – Bring Your Own License (BYOL)
Purchase the software and pay a monthly fee to have it run on servers at a secure data center either on a shared or dedicated server. Access it over a secure internet connection.
Pros: You own the software but you do not need to purchase or maintain hardware infrastructure.
Cons: Access is dependent on an internet connection.
