This architecture highlights a FactoryStack architecture that is primarily installed on-premise. FactoryStack is operated locally, at the site using hybrid computing hardware such as the Stack Edge from Microsoft. This architecture uses the cloud for Monitoring, Management, Backups and Authentication. The applications, databases and any other operational features are all operated locally, on premise. This system is delivered both Hardware as a service (HaaS) as well as Platform as a service (PaaS). This enables the system to be deployed and managed in a standard manner across installations and is low-captial/high speed for deployment.
