OnCall Enterprise customers may opt to host the Amion server display in-house. Local
hosting provides a complete copy of the Amion display on your server, and all schedule
data is mirrored between your server and amion.com.
If your hospital loses access to the internet or our server becomes inaccessible
for a period of time, staff could continue to access schedule information through
your local server. Hosting the Amion display locally also gives you more control
over updates. We update the amion.com server several times a week and having a mirror
copy of the amion server running internally gives you a more stable working environment.
Local hosting adds $1000 a year to the Enterprise license and increases reliability
accessing schedules. If any one server is unavailable for 5 or 10 minutes a year,
the odds of both servers being down simultaneously would be extremely small.
You don't need a dedicated server for the Amion display. It's relatively small, needing
only a few MB of disk space for the software, and a few more MB for several years
of data. The software itself is efficient and would not place a major drain on whatever
shared server hosts it.
