Frequently Asked Questions about the Cloud

This is not a simple question to answer. Some clients prefer to pay a monthly fee and some clients prefer to pay an upfront capital cost and buy their own server. Choosing the Cloud as a platform is very much a personal preference and we are happy to discuss the pros and cons of a Cloud vs an on-premise server and what suits your business needs the best.

Cloud solution providers vary in the length of contract. Most Cloud solution providers will tie you in between 2 and 3 years as an initial contract. With Mansys, we offer a monthly rolling contract which can terminated at any time with 30 days’ notice.

Normally the hardware is owned by the Cloud solutions provider. Most IT companies tend to resell other Cloud solution providers’ products so they tend not to own the hardware. Mansys has built its own Cloud and owns its own hardware infrastructure. This hardware is the sole property of Mansys.

Mansys stores its servers in a secure Tier 3 datacentre. We are happy to provide all our clients with a guided tour of the facility.

Pricing on the cloud is simple. Mansys will work out how much hardware capacity you require. This will be added to your licensing requirements. The total of these two will give you your monthly cost. Should your requirements change at any time and you require either more or less capacity your cost will be varied accordingly.
