WalkMe can store its files and data (the green elements in the diagram) on an internal server belonging to the customer, It can also deploy WalkMe’s servers (the blue elements in the diagram) on a separately dedicated AWS, and in some cases even deploy the entire system in the customer’s own datacenter.
