Microsoft presents: Scalability of Business Central online

14:00 - 14:45 Forum 1 Back to event schedule

Is Business Central Online ready for the large customers, or will it break under the load of these customers? Your prospective customer has many users? Your prospective customer handles many transactions every day? Your prospective customer has a lot of data? Your prospective customer makes many API calls? In this session, we will explain how Business Central Online scales as needed to handle "any" load. We will also give examples of large customers that are running Business Central Online successfully - and maybe some of these customers are similar in size to your prospective customer.
