Survey Solutions now helps users to standup and manage their own cloud or local server, instead of provisioning one on their behalf. Please visit our documentation to find detailed guidance, cost planning tools and frequently asked questions. These will help you or your IT department to deploy a Survey Solutions server on your infrastructure and allow you to continue your data collection uninterrupted.
If you have an existing server with us, it will remain active throughout your stated planned collection period
