Deployment of Ifnoss is available via three modes as per the convience of the institute.

Ifnoss Hosted

You can purchase Ifnoss one-time-only license and host it on our servers. This model is useful if you don’t want to invest on local servers, infrastructure and maintenance at your college. The maintenance and upgrades will be done by our experienced team of professionals. Whenever you decide to switch the model, you can take complete Ifnoss software and data with you any day and switch to Ifnoss Premise model and host on your own server.

Ifnoss On-Premise

You can purchase Ifnoss one-time-only license and host it on your own server. This model is useful if you intend to use your existing/new infrastructure for hosting the software. The updates can be downloaded and deployed on the local server by the college periodically as and when available.

Ifnoss On Cloud (SaaS)

This model is on cloud and works as SaaS (Software as a Service). You pay on every usage, and can leave whenever you want without any further financial obligations. It is a monthly subscription with 2 options – 1. Unlimited users or 2. Per user basis. The maintenance and upgrades will be free and done by our experienced team of professionals. Whenever you decide to switch the model, you can switch to Ifnoss Hosted or Ifnoss Premise model any day.

SaaS usually relates to software applications which are not purchased and hosted locally but licensed from an organization which also hosts the software. SaaS is a software application delivery model where the vendor develops as well as operates the software application for use by its customers via the internet. Although SaaS is not limited to business applications only, it is typically considered an economical way for businesses to gain the same benefits of commercially licensed, internally operated software, without taking on the associated complexity and high initial cost that would normally go with purchasing software.
The SaaS Model is well suited for customers who have little interest or capability in software operation, but do have considerable computing requirements such as Financial Accounting, Human Resource Management, Customer Relations Management, and many more.
SaaS differentiates itself from “On Premise” software by avoiding the need to purchase and maintain the computer hardware and related infrastructure to run an application. The only infrastructure required remains a personal computer to run the software and sufficient networking connectivity to reach the internet.
SaaS is designed to scale much more smoothly than the other models by offering multi-tenanted single instance software. With users sharing in a common infrastructure, the application makes more efficient use of hardware and is designed to scale across multiple machines.
The applications are available from any computer or any device anytime, anywhere. Because most people are familiar with using the Internet to find what they need, SaaS applications tend to have high adoption rates, with a lower learning curve.
Ifnoss as a SaaS application is subscription based. No license fees mean lower initial costs. Having the SaaS provider manage the IT infrastructure means lower IT costs for hardware, software, and the people needed to manage it all.
Because the Ifnoss provider manages all updates and upgrades, there are no patches for customers to download or install. The SaaS provider also manages availability, so there’s no need for customers to add hardware, software, or bandwidth as the user base grows.
SaaS vendors with true multi tenant infrastructure can scale indefinitely to meet customer demand. Many SaaS providers also offer customization capabilities to meet specific needs. Plus, many provide API’s that let you integrate with existing ERP systems or other business productivity systems for example financial accounting.
