Where does my data reside?

Where does my data reside?

If you are using our Sumac Cloud hosting service, your data resides on our cloud servers hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Our AWS servers are in Canada, and you can visit this page on the AWS website to learn more about AWS services in Canada.

If you are not using Sumac Cloud, and have opted to store your database locally, this means your data resides on a computer in your office. If you are licensed for a single-user version of Sumac (Bronze or Silver), the data resides in your computer, much like you would save word processing and spreadsheet documents on your computer. If you are licensed for a Sumac Gold or Sumac Platinum database, these are multi-user; the data resides on your server (typically your office server, or a desktop computer running database software).
