Deployment: On-premises, Cloud, or Hybrid

We offer several deployment options, giving you the flexibility to leverage M-Files based on the model that best suits your business needs and your budget.

Run M-Files on-premises, in the cloud or both!


If your organization has already invested in existing servers and systems, or if you have other business considerations mandating the use of an on-premises solution deployed behind your company firewall, the traditional M-Files on-premises deployment approach is right for you.


Cloud-based document and enterprise content management provides SaaS flexibility associated with licensing and scalability (such as the ability to easily expand storage, or to add or decrease user licenses as necessary) -- without significant capital investment and incremental resources to support it. In addition, cloud-based solutions offer inherent remote access to company documents, and flexible monthly billing. Powered by the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, M-Files Cloud Vault delivers additional redundancy and automated third-party backup that offers greater protection against data loss or theft.

With M-Files, organizations can leverage their existing on-premises technology investments AND take advantage of an award-winning document and enterprise content management solution running in the public cloud or a private cloud, as needed. Further, M-Files Cloud Vault can be seamlessly integrated with existing on-premises systems like an ERP or CRM, such as SAP or Microsoft Dynamics GP and AX. Conversely, an on-premises deployment of M-Files can be integrated into existing cloud-based business applications, such as Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics Online or NetSuite.
