A New Approach to Managing Print Servers

A traditional print environment that relies on print servers can become inefficient to maintain, pose security issues, and make detecting issues challenging or almost impossible.

Eliminating print servers can decrease your IT team’s responsibilities, and improve security.

Serverless Printing

Serverless printing removes the need for a print server that manages network-wide print queues. It allows users to securely send documents to network printers right from their workstations. Serverless printing also requires less hardware, file storage, and backup server overheads, making it cost-effective.

Eliminate Expensive, Local Print Servers

  • Replace cumbersome print servers with comprehensive cloud technology
  • Cloud printing makes it easier to connect users working on most devices, in most locations
  • A centrally managed printing solution can help reduce reliance on local hardware
  • Suitable for organizations who want to replace Google Cloud Print or want to explore their options outside of the Microsoft ecosystem

Eliminate Driver Management

  • Serverless printing decreases the time your IT team has to spend managing print infrastructure and troubleshooting support tickets
  • There are no print servers, print drivers or queues to manages
  • Admins can monitor and maintain the print environment from a centralized location

Enhanced Security

  • Print servers have proven vulnerable to attack
  • Print drivers are also susceptible to cyberattacks
  • Cloud print infrastructure enables organizations to adopt zero-trust printing
