Third-Party Cloud Printing

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 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

Use case – ERP printing in 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 any need for VPN used specifically for remote printing
  • Reduce on-premise infrastructure by eliminating print servers
  • Print to any PrinterOn-enabled printer on any network, whether behind the firewall or to a third-party location
  • Enable native Windows File>Print for any Windows apps running in your third-party cloud
  • Remotely configure and manage PrinterOn just as if it were deployed on premise
