RTO Pro is "Cloud" Ready

A common question we are asked is can RTO Pro run from the cloud or be "hosted". The answer to this is YES. We do not provide hosting or cloud services ourself but there are thousands of "cloud" or "hosting" providers available if you want to have a hosted solution, including very popular and well known ones such as Amazon, Rackspace and Godaddy.

A cloud or hosted solution simply means the server you are running RTO Pro from is not in your building, it is in "the cloud". We are not going to discuss the security implications of having customer data stored on servers outside of your buildings, but this is something you should consider before making the decision to move to the cloud.

The Network and Central Server editions can both be hosted in the cloud by either dedicated servers or virtual private servers (VPS or what Amazon calls EC2). Any cloud or hosted service that offers Windows Server 2008 or newer will be able to host RTO Pro for you. You would connect to your server via an RDP connection (Remote Desktop).
