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 printing solutions 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
