Hosting and storage of the reported data
When you talk about data, you talk about storage and hosting. When you ask yourself where your data is going to be stored, you will be faced with these questions: SaaS or On-premise? What are the differences between these two architectures?
At Synox, we master all the services that make up the value chain of a connected device project. We offer both on-premise hosting and private or public cloud hosting.

SaaS or On Premise? What are the differences between these two architectures? Should one be preferred?
Saas solutions: payment of a subscription
The SaaS architecture allows a software solution to be used online, anywhere and anytime, from a browser.
How does it work?
The software is outsourced and accessible by network, for a subscription with the editor/host, on any browser.
- Fully digitalized solution
- Maintenance and updates provided by the service provider
- Data access: Cloud computing
- Turnkey solution
- Data protection depends on the provider
- Offshore data
On-premise solutions: purchase of a license
On-premise solutions are software whose architecture is physically present within a company.
How does it work?
The software is settled on the company’s servers which must first purchase a license from the publisher in order to use the software.
- Remote access possible
- Maintenance and updates depend on the internal IT department
- Data access: even without internet
- In-house data security
- Data hosted on site
The central role of the IoT platform
Connected devices collect data locally thanks to their sensors. The collected data is sent to an instance usually connected to the cloud for storage. In order to be able to exploit this data and transform it into understandable and relevant information for the user, the data is directed towards an IoT platform whose structure is based either on Cloud technologies in SaaS mode (Software as a Service) or on an On Premise instance.
About the data you host at Synox
At Synox, as defined in our Data Protection Policy, stored data remains the property of the customer.
Uptime Institute has defined the concept of “Tier” for data centers which is now widely adopted around the world. The classification includes Tier I, Tier II, Tier III and Tier IV levels. A data center must be certified by this institute to claim a Tier level.
The DataCenter that hosts Synox’s internal infrastructure and the servers used for the services delivered by Synox is of TIER IV type (the highest level of availability and security). The datacenter of this hosting company is spread over two separate sites interconnected with each other.
They trust us
"In our industry, smooth communication is a critical point since our service is tied to people. So we chose Synox because when we need technical support, we get a diagnosis and a solution very quickly."
Computer & telecom engineer
"We were looking for a mature solution for rapid deployment, which is what Synox offered us. From decision making, to hardware purchase and deployment (connectivity, dashboards...) thanks to Synox's end-to-end support, the 1st Proof of Concept was completed in less than a month!"
"We wanted to give ourselves the means to avoid breakdowns and reduce our customers' stress regarding production downtime. After some research, IoT quickly appeared to be the answer to this need. Synox's collaborative approach seemed to me to be the right one and convinced me. The ability to listen to the teams and the hyper responsiveness of the support department allowed us to successfully move this project forward."
"What is interesting about the Synox solution is that it can be adapted independently to the needs of our customers, and perhaps even later to other sectors of activity. With a very simple implementation and a modest cost, we were able to deploy the solution to about 20 customers within 6 months."
"It was possible to test the proper functioning of the solution proposed by Synox before the contract was put in place, so we were able to get quick feedback from the sanitation department, which proved to be very positive. The responsiveness of Synox support in the event of a problem is much appreciated. It promotes our collaboration in an environment of trust."
Technical Project Manager
"Before the installation of connected objects, sometimes it was our customers who informed us of a malfunction in the heating system... Now we can be proactive about this type of incident. We had already carried out several unsuccessful - and expensive - POCs before testing SoDATA#Viz but when we saw the real-time curves of our 50 objects, only a week after signing the POC, it quickly convinced us!"
