Transparent. Simple. Pay as you go.
Using Cloud during your evaluation will give you access to the premium plugins and is easier to set-up. Deploy Self-Hosted as a second step, if required.
Tiny Cloud is secure, but if you have reason to not pass data outside of your environment choose Self-Hosted.
Cloud provides back-end services to support the Spell Checker Pro, Enhanced Media Embed, Image Tools, and Drive plugins. We keep them up-to-date, secure, and available. By using Tiny Cloud, you also don’t need to worry about scaling server capacity up and down. If you do not use these plugins or your team already maintains servers for your application, consider Self-Hosted.
We deploy new versions to Cloud continuously and it is a great way to stay up-to-date with security and other fixes. If you need to control upgrades, you can still link to a specific major or minor version on Cloud. The ultimate control, however, comes from Self-Hosted where updates are initiated by you.
You can deploy the editor and plugins in a 'mixed' Cloud and Self-Hosted environment. For example, you could host the core editor for maximum up-time and selected premium plugins in the Cloud (e.g. Spell Checker Pro) for ease of maintenance and scaling.
An editor load occurs each time TinyMCE is initialized in your application. For example, if 100 users load TinyMCE 10 times each, there were 1,000 editor loads. This is recorded with a request to our server when the ‘init’ function is fired in TinyMCE. More details in this blog post.
