Are you looking to fully incorporate your every business need?
Odoo is definitely the front runner in open source ERP applications that is readily available in the market. Odoo.sh is one such platform created by Odoo that is available in the Odoo Enterprise category.
Odoo.sh is an all-inclusive Odoo cloud platform that is exclusively designed for the Odoo end customers. The implementation as well as the deployment of Odoo.sh are so very highly recommended for the goods and gains of several small businesses.
But how can Odoo.sh actually help your business?
Odoo.sh is an enhanced platform as compared to Odoo online.
While Odoo online generally provides an instance of all the Odoo basic features that constrain the users with the usage of the same level features that are provided by Odoo ERP.
Generally in Odoo Online platform, there is no actual or exact provision for you to use any custom add-ons or any custom development of the software which is just mainly required by almost every client on this planet as their processes are so very unique and different.
Odoo online is not necessarily that much flexible when compared to odoo.sh, as the overall installation of the custom modules is not meant to support the terms of Odoo online. We can only go on to make the availability of Odoo pre-set modules to be fully set here.
Odoo.sh is on the scalar nature that allows for the installation of all the various custom modules and further customizations.
Odoo.sh also tends to allow the end-users to very easily test your entire developments, managing your feature branches, and to beta-test your existing features on all the duplicates of your customer’s entire production instance.
Odoo.sh tends to use the Github account with their unique SSH keys and overall secrets, where they can merge, clone, and fork the projects. One can easily register their SSH public key and go on to get connected to any server within just a few clicks.
It is quite evident to watch the odoo.sh transparently getting integrated with all the Github development flow.
Did you know that Odoo online is actually delivered via subscription? You can also request for the Odoo online subscription through online mode to be delivered in no time and for instant use!
As Odoo online is an enterprise version, we can make available the Odoo studio app to make changes in the Odoo online. In some cases, Odoo tends to introduce new modules for very specific features like (Vat, Indian GST, etc), which every common end-user will need to install modules manually.

Odoo often tends to manage all servers for you like monitoring, the overall backups, emails, DNS, as well as production servers. Both the existing cloud platforms are managed by the Odoo portal itself. There is nothing that you actually need to worry about.

- Odoo online will go on to keep 14 full backups of each of the Odoo database for over up to 3 months, that is 1/day for 7 days, 1/week for a total 4 weeks, 1/month for almost 3 months
- All the backups are replicated in at least three significant different data centres that are on different continents
- You can also choose to download the manual backups of all your live data at any point in time using the control panel
- Odoo.sh, tends to also take Incremental Backups of all your data for future use. These incremental backups are able to last on three different data centers, which are actually done twice a day.

The possibilities don’t just end there!
In odoo.sh, you can also use your own domain names for all your ERP projects. This is applicable with the DNS subdomains too. You can use these DNS subdomains for all your development branches that are in odoo online, where you don’t have to worry about the domain names. The odoo online support team will be effectively ready to guide you to fully set up your domain during the adequate implementation time.
The Odoo.sh support can be imposed on more than one add-on folder. If we add any repository containing Odoo add-ons as a substantial submodule of your branch, then it gets automatically detected as an add-on folder which will followingly go on to include the path to the database. We can also install those add-ons very effortlessly and can also install the community modules to have them tested in just a few clicks. (This is based on Github submodules).

But are you aware of how to choose your hosting? As simple as it sounds, it really isn’t!
Here is a little preview into this context!
Odoo Online: The Simplicity
The biggest and best benefit of Odoo Online is its simplicity: you’ll never have to care about the technical aspects because Odoo takes care of it all. Right from monitoring the platform 24/7 to making sure that you always benefit from it, its performance and our team efforts will make sure that your complete cloud platform scales as your company eventually grows!
On-Premises: Limitless Possibilities
Odoo Enterprise can also be effectively deployed on your own existing server if you want to fully set-up your whole hosting infrastructure.
We also only recommend this option for our customers with advanced technical knowledge as the Odoo SA can’t generally provide any guarantee nor any actual Service Level
Agreement regarding the overall robustness, actual performance, and the advanced scalability of your infrastructure.
While hosting Odoo On-Premises, you’ll have to mainly take care of a lot of essential technical aspects that can be very crucial for the robustness and for the actual cost of your software installation. If you are to work with a third-party provider, you should then plan to make sure to know what’s included in your existing contract and what will be on it with an extra cost.
Odoo.sh: The Best of Both Worlds
Odoo.sh is a PaaS (Platform as a Service) managed fully by Odoo SA. Odoo.sh allows you to generally deploy your own cloud platform that is in a couple of clicks. It also comes with an entire email server.
We can guarantee the same Service Level Agreement that is what we do for Odoo Online: 99.9% of it for the uptime. We also aim to do full incremental backup of your entire production environment every day. These overall backups are kept on the 3 distinct data centers, on several different continents, then allowing you to download all the backups.
Odoo.sh also gives you the flexibility to adequately choose the best deployment architecture (including the number of workers, storage, as well as the number of staging environments) and lets you easily adapt and adjust your configuration as your varying needs evolve. The platform will then scale as your company grows!
Opting with the right hosting system is substantial which directly assists in your business success. Based on the business requirement and work system, it is recommended to make a wise choice when it comes to choosing the right Odoo edition (Odoo Community or Enterprise edition) and the perfect hosting platform.
