Cloud or on-premise
Germain can be deployed on-premise, on your cloud, or our AWS cloud.
Data Privacy and Total Cost of Ownership are generally what defines which approach to follow.
The "magic" of identifying the root-cause of issues often requires access to the whole infrastructure from the User Desktop, to your Cloud, and on-premise technologies. However, you may not need it all depending on the issues your organization is trying to resolve.
Remote vs Local
Gernain Engine has the option to be deployed Locally on or Remotely/away from the server it monitors. Assess the infrastructure impact in both cases and decide which option to choose from.
Other Germain components don't have this option. More details on Germain Components .
