The latest versions of Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Business Central are cloud-hosted solutions by default. But there are many organisations running other versions of Dynamics as on-premise instances.
For those looking to do so, Akita can migrate your existing Dynamics instance to our enterprise-grade cloud environment.

Benefits of hosting on-premise Dynamics CRM & ERP systems
For whatever reason an organisation is using an on-premise version of Dynamics, there are plenty of reasons to consider migrating to Akita’s cloud environment.
For a start, Dynamics is intensive on in-house servers. Migrating to the cloud can free up capacity and save you money on the cost of maintaining these servers (server cooling alone can cost an organisation several hundred pounds a month).
Hosting with Akita also ensures scalability. In our data centres, your Dynamics instance can grow as large as you need it to. This means you avoid the cost of upgrading servers for more space. Microsoft’s cost for cloud storage is also much higher than our own, so you’ll potentially be saving money by hosting with us rather than migrating to Dynamics 365.
A hosted Dynamics instance is also more flexible to use. With the appropriate security in place, users will be able to access Dynamics from any location or device they want, and won’t be tied to being in the office
Migrating to the cloud can also minimise risk. Any Dynamics instance hosted on an on-site server should be backed up for business continuity purposes. Migrating to our cloud environment means we take care of both your Dynamics instance and your backups, meaning fewer things for you to worry about.
Some organisations may also have had security concerns around hosting within Microsoft’s cloud environment, and the possibility of having data replicated around the world. Our datacentres are located in the UK, so you know exactly where your data is. We can even arrange a visit to our data centre locations if this is important to you.
Our Dynamics hosting solution
Whatever version of Dynamics you’re running, we can help you migrate to our cloud setup. Our consultants will carefully review your instance to determine the best strategy, then undertake the migration at the least disruptive time for your organisation.
Akita operates our own enterprise-grade cloud infrastructure from two of the UK’s leading data centres. These data centres have the highest standards of security and disaster protection, ensuring excellent uptime and reliability.
Our cloud environment is monitored 24/7 by our infrastructure team, who will also manage your data backups to ensure they are secure and reliable should you need them.
And if you’re considering a wider cloud migration for your organisation, our IT division can assist with this as well.
