When you want to keep up to date with the latest computing platforms, stay ahead of your competition with the newest technology, or simply find the right solution for your business, it can be difficult task if you don’t really know what you’re looking for, or what you need.
We want to make sure you choose the right style of computing for your company, so you can run your business in the most efficient way possible. That starts with understanding the difference between Cloud, Hybrid and On-Premise, and choosing the best option for you.
In this article, we are going to look at what they really mean, along with the pros and cons of each, helping to make your decision a little easier.
We probably all know and have experience with desktop applications and on-premise servers; they’ve been in our offices and our homes for years! On-premise simply refers to a computer system that has been designed to work solely within a single office location, with all data, documents, programs and applications all stored locally with each machine and on a local server.
More and more businesses are using cloud computing to revolutionise and update their company. Utilising the cloud gives you the ability to store and access data over the internet, using servers in off-site location rather than a local drive or personal computer.
Hybrid computing combines the best of on-premise and cloud technology; allowing businesses to give their customers a better insight into their project whilst also ensuring staff have complete access and control over data.
Cloud can be split into two separate sections:
Typically, hybrid is the choice for most businesses, because you are given the best of both on-premise and cloud. A hybrid solution could allow on premise servers to run a business application that is not suitable for the cloud, or store sensitive data that you don’t want to put in the cloud, whilst still taking advantage of cloud-based, cost-effective productivity applications and off-site backup solutions.
However, no business is the same and this is why it is important to weigh up the pros and cons and how they will specifically impact your company. The way your business operates can determine the type of systems you require, which is why here at Paralogic, we are committed to finding every business the right solutions for their needs.
