Re: On-premise pricing structure questions

That is an interesting question. I am not sure how they would handle that on the hosted (SaaS) Odoo model. It would be a good question to pose to them. I would love to hear their answer. You would also have to check with them if they would allow you to create your own database replica of theirs. Not sure if this would fly. If they do decide to do, I am sure it will not be covered by the standard monthly / setup fees.

But I think you are focusing on the wrong problem here. One of the advantages of the Hosted model, is not having to worry about this kind of stuff. Honestly, if you have Internet connectivity issues, why not just get an alternative temporarily (1-2 hours max?) or get a back-up internet connection with WAN failover in place for your office? This is more and more common nowadays, with companies depending more and more on the cloud. Internet is no longer superfluous. If this is just you at the beginning, I would say use wireless connection until your internet is back, or a virtual office, coffee shop. Whatever it is, so that you can reach to get on with your work, while your connection is not up. Unless we are talking about days / weeks of outages, which should not be the case, or you need a new ISP. I hope this is not the case, but sometimes there are not a lot of options in remote ares.

If you are going to deal with on-premisses servers at all, than why bother with hosted model? I would then build my own server and maybe consider replication with a dedicated server or VPS server somewhere, for Disaster Recovery purposes. You can have database redundancy introduced with different tools (pgpool2 for PGSQL for example), depending on what you need and if it is something you would like to take on.

Good luck!

I'm hoping someone can resolve some questions I have regarding an on-premise installation.

My situation is that I am looking at a hosted service with Odoo including the Website & Ecommerce, CRM & Sales, and Project bundles.  I would also want to use the $80/month customisation option for the Project and possibly the CRM & Sales bundles (the Website & Ecommerce I would use standard).

The business I am about to start is particularly time-sensitive and there are occasionally deadlines of great importance (and risk).  For this reason, I would want to have an on-premise installation which would ensure my data (at least the majority of it) is available to me even in the event of an internet outage.  These outages are rare, but they do happen, so if one happened with a deadline looming it could cause major problems for me.  The syncing of data between the two databases is something I haven't investigated thoroughly, but I'd like to put that aside for now (regular manual exchanges of data might even be feasible for me).

My questions are:

1.  Would the customised modules be made available to me to install on-premise (I realise it would be up to me to install them)?

2.  Once the customisations were done, how long would the $80/month charges need to be paid?  Would it be for the life of the use of the customised modules?

Looking forward to your responses,
