Because Dynamics 365 Business Central is cloud-based, your data and computer programs are stored and delivered online. (This implies that Business Central and other cloud-based solutions are accessible at any time and from any location.) This cloud-based model differs from on-premises systems, in which everything is stored on local servers, sometimes down the hall from the office, and which have high starting and upgrade infrastructure costs.
Business Central is hosted on the Microsoft Azure Cloud, an open and customizable cloud platform in Microsoft datacenters. These datacenters are safer, quicker, more redundant, scalable, and less expensive than hosting on your own servers.
Additionally, Business Central is a component of the Dynamics 365 Platform, with tight connections with Microsoft 365 (Office 365), Sales, Marketing, and Customer Service (CRM), Field Service, and Project Service Automation. Microsoft Dynamics 365 is available as a subscription service only with cloud hosting from Microsoft or as a private cloud on Azure.
When you use Microsoft’s Azure cloud, you receive access to all of Microsoft’s cutting-edge security features without going through the procedure yourself. Perimeter fencing, video cameras, security staff, secure entrances, and real-time communications networks are among these measures.
You have strong security thanks to industry-standard encryption technologies and threat protection services. Your data is less likely to be lost because it is redundantly stored in a primary and secondary location within two Microsoft datacenters. Your data can be restored from a backup data center in another part of the country if one data center is damaged (for example, owing to an earthquake). This redundancy is a significant advantage of cloud-based apps; redundancy and recovery solutions are rarely available in on-premises environments.
