Cloud vs On-Premises Server for Finsys ERP

Cloud vs On-Premises Server for Finsys ERP

( updated 8th October 2023 )

There are Two options for Server

You can choose either of the two Options.

Because your business is evolving day by day, we understand you cannot always be behind your desk to check and manage your business’s operations. That is why we seek to continuously better the ways in which the Finsys ERP Software solution is deployed and ease how you manage your days.

At this point, Finsys ERP Software may be deployed on three different platforms: you may choose from Cloud Based Server, or Inhouse Server. We carefully and continuously study your needs to offer the best solution in achieving your goals and having your projects succeed.  Discover the ways in which each and every module can answer your needs.

Let us Evaluate the “On Premises” “own” server first

The  “On Premise” server 

If you prefer accessing the software from your Private On Premise Server. Yes, we are there for you.

Your Server, your database, your LAN, your private controls. And you are not dependent on anybody outsider.
And No RENT to pay to anybody.


Your LAN based as well as WAN based and also your Wireless and Mobile users can use the ERP on the Fly.

Till 2019, most of the implementations were for this “Own hardware server, or also called on premise server only”.

Con side : In this case you have to Budget for costs for (a) Windows Licences for Server, (b) Windows Client Access Licences (c) Oracle Per user Licence ( around Rs 10,000. per user, lifetime once ), or in case of unlimited users Rs 4,00,000 + GST, once lifetime for normal small servers , upto 16 threads.

The Main factors to discuss to decide on deployment of Finsys ERP Software on the On-premises server platform is (a) Rental cost (b) Internet Speed.

The factories are usually located outside the city. The Internet is usually poor or unreliable. So, you want the factory users to be always ON. So, here it is.

LAN in your single factor will always be faster than Internet. so, if you have poor internet, and you have only 1 factory then go for owned hardware, self purchased server.

And….. you must have an inhouse IT Manager to handle the same. Usually, you must have an inhouse IT Resource anyway. And ratio is usually 1 person per 20 computer users.

You save on Rent. And spend 1 time on server, and in future on electricity , UPS, repairs, anti-virus, manpower etc.   You may do your own quick calculstions

For your information the servers we need are very very economical.  You may buy a basic server costing about Rs 1,00,000 to Rs 1.50 lakhs. That is sufficient for upto 50 users easily. So, relax and start towards the ERP journey. + about 4 lakhs on Oracle licence + Rs 1 lakh on Windows server + some CAL’s

Note: if your user base id below 20 users, then you dont need cost towards Oracle licences, Since the education version, the “Express Edition” will work fine for you. So you can postpone that cost by some years.

Do talk to us, we will guide you the best time to invest on Oracle licences  based on your number of users and number of plants


If you have good Internet connection at your premises. Go for it.

The future of information technology certainly lies in cloud computing. Your app may be cloud shared. The Finsys ERP Software Cloud solution is made available for customers choosing to bring their business to the next level.   Here is a way to gain access to your entire business without going through any internal resource to do so!

The savings is when you consider the cost of Data mirroring, Cross Country Disaster recovery site / online backup facilities etc


Is moving around part of your daily routine? Mobile access helps in some Quick MIS Reports, for the Approvals of PO, Sale orders, Indents etc.

This access software is available for both ERP, whether on cloud or on premises. Hence this is NEUTRAL

If you have decided to go for Cloud, now……as per us, Oracle Cloud is best for Backend Cloud Server

Best Cloud Server for  “Backend :  Oracle Database hosting” for Finsys ERP :

{ Recommendations Dated 7th October 2023 }

We have experienced about 55 Companies who Shifted between June 2022 to October 2023……either From inhouse server to Oracle Cloud for “database”, Or, from AWS / others to Oracle Cloud for Database

Recommendation is to “Shift to Oracle Cloud for Backend Server” :

This is our suggestion due to various success stories and experience at this stage of our Evolution.

Detailed reasons are as under


for Web Finsys users : There are Two compulsory servers : One is Application Server, Second is Database server

for Main VB Finsys users : There is need of One  server only : The Database server

Application server should be on : Azure Cloud with E2E Networks Limited,, or can be on AWS also as in past

Detailed comparison of AWS and E2E Networks on  our May 2023 post :

in case you use “Main exe” you do not need the Application server, hence please shift focus to point “2” below

Action point : Backend Server : Database

Oracle cloud is The BEST Option as of 7-Oct-2023 for the Backend server, if your company has more than 20 users, and has more than 1 location and wants to avoid the hassle of keeping inhouse server, plus its costly Softwares, Plus its UPS, plus its 24×7 electricity and high end Internet Bandwidth and Static IP etc etc

Oracle Server Service = very good. No Doubts

Remember to take 1 OCPU per 50 users you have

Oracle Database licence = included

This is a big Benefit, you save Lakhs of Rupees in the Oracle Database Licences. The cost of Database licence is almost nil, if you purchase the Oracle Cloud services from OCI

Reasons ?

“Oracle Linux” based Server = This has technical benefit
“Oracle Sun Microsystems” based Hardware Server = This has technical benefits
“Oracle Database Licence” based Server = This has technical benefit
“Oracle cost is included” in this Server = This has Financial + Technical benefit
More RAM , more Efficiency = This has technical benefit
Very low cost of Hard Disk Space = This has Financial benefit
Facility to use Oracle Enterprise Edition = This edition costs anywhere from Rs 10 lakhs to Rs 40 lakhs based on the server you have for “unlimited users” … And you know what.. you can use this for just Rs 30000 pm onwards… for a company with 100 plus users.. this is excellent service, excellent performance

Our Recommendation ?

Best Combination of Cloud Servers, in our view for Finsys ERP Customers ?

A : Database on Oracle Cloud

B : Front end application on E2E Networks / Azure / AWS ( but with some risks, as per page link given in part 1 above.
