Need more flexibility than our A3 Exile Cloud plans provide, or have special requirements? Hosting your own installation of A3 Exile Portal may be for you! By hosting our platform on your own infrastructure, you have the ability to optimize it specifically to your own needs, and without any usage restrictions.
Self-hosting a Portal requires an understanding of maintaining an infrastructure that is compatible with our platform and suitable for demanding web applications. We recommend consulting with your IT team before choosing a self-hosted license, or contact us to discuss your needs.
