Hosting Dynamics NAV in the cloud can be done with relative ease and offers many benefits.






Dynamics NAV can be hosted on a cloud provider, such as Azure, with some straight-forward installation and configuration steps:


  • Any upgrades from previous NAV versions can be done locally and then simply uploaded to the cloud server.
  • Installations and configuration can be done directly on the cloud server as per a normal NAV installation.
  • Users can then connect to NAV wither via a direct connection on their own client – requiring just the cloud server address, or via the web-client from their mobile device.
  • Security can be managed via NAV authentication using security certificates.


There are some clearly visible benefits to hosting NAV on the cloud:


  • Initial Hardware Cost – No hardware is required. This can be a huge a cost saving, particularly for smaller businesses who do not have the financial resources for a large infrastructure layout.
  • IT Staff and Support – No hardware support is required. Hardware is maintained and supported by the cloud provider
  • Flexibility: Subscription is monthly, so you can change your subscription based on your needs at any particular point in time.
  • Security – The cloud server is hosted a secure data centre and managed by the cloud provider.
