Small to Mid-sized (SMB)
Single Data CenteriClassical small and medium-sized business deployments work on a single datacenter or are hosted with external service providers. Infrastructure expenses and operating costs are the main considerations when choosing a solution. As such, it is best to avoid the necessity of server clustering by relieving data storage and application servers, i.e. setting up dedicated import / export, search or reporting servers.
Single Data CenteriSingle Datacenter deployments make sense, when the bulk of core users work within a geographical region, while other users are mainly read-only. A single datacenter can be improved for read access, either usage of export staging servers or Content Delivery Networks (CDN). High availability and efficient disaster recovery are the main considerations for a single datacenter solution with an enterprise multi-server.
Multi Data CenteriMulti Datacenter deployments make sense, when a system is used across continents, in a decentralized way and with many local users contributing to a global (or partially global) data repository. Consistency between storage is the main consideration in multi datacenter solutions.

SW as a Service (SaaS)
Cloud-basedi(Software as a Service is the most suitable solution for small- to medium-sized deployments, when the main strategy is to focus on “sticking to the standards”: Fast Deployment and Setup.
