Is Salesforce cloud hosted? What about Salesforce data?

Salesforce Cloud is a suite of cloud-based customer relationship management software solutions that help businesses connect with customers, close deals, and deliver service.

Was Salesforce always cloud based?

Salesforce was founded in 1999 by Marc Benioff, a sales executive at Oracle, one of the largest software companies in the world. The company was founded on a single, bold premise – that software should be made available to the masses, on a 24/7 basis, over a global cloud computing infrastructure.

Marc Russell Benioff is an American internet entrepreneur and philanthropist. Benioff is best known as the co-founder, chairman and CEO of the software company Salesforce, as well as being the owner of Time magazine since 2018.

(Salesforce), a leading customer relationship management (CRM) company, chose Amazon Web Services (AWS) as its primary cloud provider in 2016. Today, Salesforce and AWS have a global strategic relationship focused on technical alignment and joint development. Salesforce remains a cloud hosted solution.

Where is Salesforce data hosted?

It depends on whether your org is on Hyperforce or not. If you’re on Hyperforce, then it will be stored on AWS. If you’re not on Hyperforce, then it will be stored in Oracle Database within Salesforce Data Centers.

In both cases, Salesforce is cloud hosted.
