Third Party Cloud Printing

With the rise of third-party cloud services such as Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM SoftLayer and others, many organizations have found it less costly and more convenient to move their existing business applications “to the cloud” and save fixed and ongoing costs related to IT infrastructure and support personnel.

Cloud deployments relieve the burden from the organization of managing servers and infrastructure and allow them to manage applications from a web-based console. Third-party cloud deployments also enable organizations to have a cloud print server in the same cloud as their business applications which they have moved there. This not only allows remote printing to third-party location but also printing back to the same on premise printers on the organization’s own trusted network. These printers are, in effect, now “remote” because the application driving them is now in the cloud, not on the same network.

“A remote printing solution deployed alongside your business applications in a third-party cloud will provide mobile and remote print access to all of your printers on the local trusted network as well as “off network” remote printers.”

Printing From an ERP or Other System Moved to a Third-Party Cloud

A business who uses an on premise commercial ERP system or a custom-built system for running business functions like order management, inventory, CRM, accounting, or other functions has decided to move those systems to a third-party cloud provider in order reduce the complexity of their internal IT and reduce cost. Many of those applications still need to print documents to printers behind the company firewall as part of the business process.

With PrinterOn running along-side your apps in the cloud, you can:
  • Access secure printing services running in a third-party cloud
  • Eliminate VPN used specifically for printing
  • Reduce infrastructure by eliminating print servers
  • Print to any PrinterOn-enabled printer on any network
  • Enable native Windows printing for any Windows apps running in your third-party cloud
  • Remotely configure and manage PrinterOn just like our on premise solution

The Benefits of a Third-Party Cloud Printing Solution

Cloud services are popular because they can reduce the cost and complexity of owning and operating computers and networks. Since cloud users do not have to invest in technology infrastructure, purchase hardware or buy software licenses, the benefits are:

  • low up-front costs
  • rapid deployment
  • customization and flexibility

Some other benefits to users include scalability, reliability, and efficiency. Scalability means that a third-party cloud offers unlimited processing and storage capacity. The cloud is reliable in that it enables access to applications and documents anywhere in the world via the Internet.

Other benefits include:

  • Maintenance and Support – When the system goes down, the provider is responsible for fixing any problems and getting it up and running again

  • Expert Knowledge – a third-party cloud service provides highly skilled resources that are experts in their industry

  • Cost Advantages – For smaller organizations that cannot make large investments running their own cloud, using a third-party is much more cost effective
