Deploy Sugar Your Way

Only Sugar gives you so much choice over how you deploy the application. You can be up and running in a few hours by choosing our cloud deployment option, running Sugar as a full Software as a Service (SaaS) application. You’ll get ample storage space as part of your subscription.

Sugar can also be deployed on your own infrastructure, on a variety of server operating systems, running against a wide variety of database systems.

Alternately, our own high-performance hosting delivers exceptional service levels, tuned to your needs.

Importantly, you’re not locked into any of these strategies – you can change your hosting preference at any time and move from on-demand to on-premise or vice-versa at any time by raising a support request.
