Cloud or On-Premise Deployment?
What is the right solution for your facility?
JANUS Displays provides on-premise and cloud-based digital signage solutions, designed to suit the needs of your organization and facility. Our 30+ years in digital signage has allowed us to work with brands and businesses of all shapes and sizes, each with their own particular business needs and technological environments.
We work hand-in-hand to find the solution that’s best for you. Key factors we will consider together include the size of your network, the location of the digital signage within your facility, the design and security requirements of your existing network, your IT support infrastructure and the location of your digital signage content administrators.
On-prem digital signage software provides you with access and control, while cloud solutions reduce the demand on your network infrastructure and support. We’ve developed solutions that allow us to provide for what matters most to you. At JANUS, we work with you to explore all your options and then tailor your entire digital signage solution to your needs.
On-Premise Digital Signage Network
On-prem solutions are less reliant on outside services (hosting, internet providers) and generally give the client more control over their system. On-prem systems remain more popular with most of our clients. Running costs are fixed, because owning all the critical elements of the digital signage system means that no annual cloud storage hosting fees are incurred and software leasing is not tied to an annual license fee. Once you buy an on-prem JANUS Displays digital signage solution, you own it, and you won’t have to keep paying for your system again every month for the life of the system. Additionally, an on-prem system will run, even if your facility faces internet connectivity issues or other external forces that might hamper data transmission via the web.
Cloud-Based Digital Signage Network
A cloud system may require less maintenance, by eliminating a local server and storing all content elements in the cloud. Our cloud based service exists outside your internal secure business network and requires only a reliable web connection to function. JANUS Displays uses Microsoft Azure cloud service, a highly-regarded, secure storage environment. JANUS maintains hosting as part of your annual cloud service fee. A cloud-hosted system may be easier to service and maintain for some clients, because it lives in its own secure environment, outside the client’s local area or corporate network. Our cloud service hosts your digital signage content and server in the cloud, so your IT infrastructure needs are reduced, and new content managers can easily be added at any time, and in any location.
At JANUS, we aim to provide the best digital signage solution for your needs, and look forward to discussing your options with you. We’ll work with you to evaluate what is important, and then provide the system design, hardware, software, enclosures, installation and support for your digital signage system – all from one trusted partner.
We’re just a call away at all times.
