YourCloud
YourCloud Hosting

Fast. Reliable. Cost Effective.

Doing business in today’s global economy requires anytime, anywhere access to your systems and data in real-time. This helps you keep up with your company's demand and stay ahead of your competition. Smart businesses spend their time and money on the things that make them profitable. Smart businesses have stopped spending money on IT infrastructure and support for the applications they rely on, and have moved to a cloud hosting model, where their infrastructure can be maintained and supported by professionals that know their system best.
Have you considered the importance of:

  • Security
  • Privacy
  • Transparency
  • Disaster Recovery

Your business needs tight security, and many businesses need to comply with industry security standards. Rather than investing money in your internal IT staff year after year when new compliance and security standards are published, smart businesses rely on providers who conform to renowned global standards like HIPAA, Soc 1, Soc 2, and ISO 27001/27002.

 

YourCloud can handle both existing customer with on premise licensing and brand new users. There are two separate user licensing options:

  • Bring Your Own License (BYOL) - This licensing model is commonly known as an on premise license, whereby the software is owned.
  • Services Provider License Agreement (SPLA) - This licensing model is commonly known as a cloud hosted, per user/ per month license.

 

My Business Already Owns Microsoft Dynamics GP Software:

 

If your business already owns Microsoft Dynamics GP software, Bring Your Own License (BYOL) is probably the best option for you.

 

YourCloud provides existing Dynamics GP customers the opportunity to move their on premise application to YourCloud where upgrades are FREE and your system is maintained by Tidestone Solutions, so you can focus on your business. Moving your on premise solution to YourCloud is easy; we work together to determine the right time, and make sure that there is very little down time for your users. After moving to YourCloud:

  • You will continue to pay an annual enhancement fee, which includes software updates and service packs
  • You will still have access to Microsoft CustomerSource, and 
  • You will still have your allowance of support incidents with Microsoft, that came with your annual enhancement

Licensing: If your Microsoft Dynamics GP licenses and annual enhancement are current, we can discuss the benefits of transferring your licenses from BYOL to SPLA (see detailed descriptions above).

Upgrading: You decide when you want to upgrade your software, or Tidestone Solutions can help you evaluate your system and provide consultation around your software upgrade.

Privacy: You own and control your own data. You will sign a YourCloud hosting services agreement, but you will have the freedom and flexibility you move your data at any time.

Security: Microsoft Azure is the platform where your data is stored with YourCloud. You can rest assured knowing that your data is on a secure network where threats are managed and communication is encrypted. Additionally, user access is controlled with secure sign on in YourCloud.

Redundancy: With multiple servers and backups of your data, you can rest assured knowing that you will have history backups if the server were to have down time.

I Am Considering Microsoft Dynamics GP for My Business:

 

If you are considering Microsoft Dynamics GP and do not currently own the software, Service Provider License Agreement (SPLA) is probably the best option for you.

 

If you do not already own Dynamics GP, the Microsoft SPLA license is probably the most cost effective option for you. You will pay a per user/ per month license fee for the number of users your business has. From there, you can easily adjust your user count to add or subtract licenses on a monthly basis. With Microsoft SPLA Licensing:

  • There is no up-front (capital) investment required
  • There is no annual enhancement fee
  • Additional functionality (from the Dynamics GP suite or from an ISV) can be easily integrated
  • YourCloud users will be upgraded bi-annually and you’ll have the ability to schedule your upgrade when the time is right for your business

Integration: Integrating with other applications, either in the cloud or on premise, is done with standard Microsoft tools and technology. 

Licensing: The per user/ per month licensing fee is customized to your business's requirements.

Privacy: You own and control your own data. You will sign a YourCloud hosting services agreement, but you will have the freedom and flexibility you move your data at any time.

Security: Microsoft Azure is the platform where your data is stored with YourCloud. You can rest assured knowing that your data is on a secure network where threats are managed and communication is encrypted. Additionally, user access is controlled with secure sign on in YourCloud.

Redundancy: With multiple servers and backups of your data, you can rest assured knowing that you will have history backups if the server were to have down time.
