Deployment options

Sage X3 provides great flexibility, as it can be deployed in the cloud or on-premises; whatever works best for your business. We will work with you to determine which deployment option is right for you.


More and more systems are being deployed away from where they are ultimately used. ‘Cloud’ deployment is increasingly popular with many hosting providers offering many options – the choice, specification and mix of those options are all important considerations when balancing accessibility, performance and ultimately cost.


Some customers require their business systems to be located where they have full control over the hardware and data, access to it and its operation. Sage X3 provides for this choice; the specification of the required hardware is an important factor of any deployment and with our many years of experience behind us, we can advise on good and bad practices and choices for hardware specification.
