Offload database maintenance

Open Door offers managed services to ensure your system is backed up and the database is optimized on a regular basis, as well as providing 24 hour monitoring.

Private clouds are available

If you like the philosophy of a cloud environment but you would like to hold it a little closer, you can sign up for a private cloud.

Cloud environments aren't all multi-tenant

This is important because only multi-tenant cloud are truly able to take advantage of streamlined upgrades of core business software, much like your bank software.  Just putting your business software in the cloud may not be anything more than having a hosted environment where you still need to travel the traditional upgrade path.

Public clouds are the most common

Your banking software uses a public cloud.  Signing up for Microsoft Dynamics 365 to handle your accounting requirements means you are utilizing a public cloud, although that may be evolving to allow private clouds.  You share the hardware, systems, and potentially databases with other cloud users.
