We've Got Your Back: How to Use XTN and the Cloud for Business Continuity
BC Wilson, xTuple Director of Cloud Services
Perry Clark, Senior Database Manager, xTuple HQ
 
It's painful to imagine, but the simple fact is, systems can fail. If the power goes out, the water rises, or a tornado tears off the roof, the machine hosting your xTuple ERP can go down. Then what? How about this: you're back in business in an hour, on a new machine in the cloud. xTuple offers an XTN backup and recovery service that can save your bacon.

Case Studies: Your Cloud or Mine? Public, Private and the Right to Change Your Mind
BC Wilson, xTuple Director of Cloud Services
 
xTuple customers have options for where to deploy. They also have the option to change that decision with relative ease. Hear examples of companies who moved from local to the cloud, from the cloud to an appliance, and from the cloud back to local again. The ability to move when needed is part of what makes xTuple unique.
