Hosting or On Premise

On Premise means that your servers are located at your place and are part of your IT infrastructure. Of course, APS is ready for that. But not everybody can or wants to operate fast, secure and reliable (read: expensive) servers himself or herself. But we do. Therefore, you have the choice to run the server yourself or to let us host your APS application for you. We will look after your system without any additional costs. The decision is yours and you’re free to reconsider it anytime you want.

We know from experience that many museums, libraries and public archives in particular don’t want to operate the server architecture required for APS. In most cases, time and money are given as reasons. To those customers, our hosting is an attractive opportunity to keep the costs down.

In case you are interested in hosting your APS application on our servers, please contact us. We will give you more details about our servers and make you an offer. If you are thinking about on-premise servers, please take a look at this list of system requirements.

The system requirements of an APS environment depend on many factors such as the number of simultaneous users, the structure and amount of data you would like to store and the number of active APS instances.

In this list you'll see the system requirements of one single APS instance without sub-licences but including DEV, TEST and PRODUCTION Stages, separate data base serverand separate webserver.
