Why We Only Host Sage on Dedicated Servers
We exclusively offer dedicated environments over shared servers for Sage cloud hosting because, in our professional opinion, they’re the best. In a dedicated environment, you’ll consistently experience top security, system and ERP performance because you’ll never have to share memory, bandwidth or storage with users outside of your own business.
Dedicated Sage hosting lets you enjoy the perks of cloud hosting with the added ability to completely customize your remote desktop with the essential applications and resources you require to run your company. Also, dedicated servers at Summit Hosting are both flexible enough to change as your needs shift and strong enough to grow with your business.
If you ever outgrow your current edition of Sage, don’t worry – you won’t have to switch to a new hosting service. Instead, simply contact one of our engineers. We have the capacity to host even the most powerful Sage software and can provide the resources, like additional memory or storage space, you need to make sure everything runs smoothly.Ready to Join our Trusted Community?
Sage Hosting vs. Sage Online
Contrary to popular belief, Sage hosting and Sage Online are completely different services, and the latter is no longer offered.
Sage hosting refers to when your Sage software is accessible from a remote desktop connected to a protected cloud server; this server is where all of your data and files are securely stored and operated from. Using a custom username and unique password, you can safely login to this remote desktop from any location with your internet-connected device and use Sage like you would on a regular desktop.
In the past, you may have heard about Sage Online. This discontinued service was only offered by Sage and was specifically designed for Sage 100 and Sage 300. In your search for Sage Online, you may have also stumbled across something called “Sage Business Cloud”. This refers to a group of Sage products that are either cloud-based (Sage Intacct and Sage People) or “cloud-connected” (Sage 100cloud and Sage 300cloud). Cloud-connected products in the Sage Business Cloud are not fully cloud-based, but they can be connected to many other solutions that are. These products can, however, only be truly cloud-based through private cloud hosting.
If you’re interested in learning more to see if cloud-based Sage hosting on dedicated servers is the best choice for your business, contact us at Summit Hosting today.

What is Sage Hosting?
Sage hosting, also known as Sage cloud hosting, lets you remotely access your data on a secure server using the internet. With Sage hosting, you’ll never be confined to a local desktop; instead, you’ll always have the freedom to safely use your Sage software from anywhere, at anytime – you just need an internet connection.
Additionally, hosted Sage saves money: when your software is installed on a cloud server, you don’t have to worry about extra hardware costs.
“But… how does cloud hosting work?” – if you’re thinking something along those lines, no worries! We’ve got the answer you’re looking for: Sage hosting providers, such as Summit Hosting, install your licensed Sage software version on a secure cloud server. This server is accessed online using a device (usually a PC or Mac) to login to your unique virtual desktop.
When you choose Summit Hosting, your business will always have your own dedicated server; this means you’ll never have to share space with anyone else so you’ll experience the fastest speed. Not to mention, you’ll be able to completely customize your company’s cloud: integrate the Sage applications you need, add additional storage, buy extra user licenses and more directly through us.

Keeping your data on a dedicated physical server lets us tailor the cloud according to your business’s unique needs.

- Do I need to backup my data or will Summit Hosting do it for me?
