  • Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online runs "in the cloud". No difference other than the words.

    You could run CRM as an on-premises installation on your own private cloud (eg Azure) instead, which would be cloud but not CRM Online - you would be totally responsible for the CRM installation, updates etc, whereas CRM Online all that is done for you.

    Hope this helps.

  • Sure CRM Online takes care of maitaining the server, doing backup and doing updates, but that can also be seen as a bad thing. First many complain CRM online is slow. You don't have direct access to the database. 

    The company I work for is right now working on moving away from CRM online to an on premises installation. There are pros and cons when it comes to this subject.
