Key considerations when moving from on premises to cloud
Many businesses are considering moving to a cloud or partly cloud driven model for their IT infrastructure.
What is on premises?
Software that is installed and runs on the premises of the user is known as on premise. This type of set up has greater security and gives the organization a greater degree of control as compared to a cloud set up. However, the cost incurred to manage and maintain a on premise solution is significantly higher than a cloud solution.
What are cloud and hybrid solutions?
In a cloud solution instead a third party hosts and runs the software and IT infrastructure for an organization. A hybrid solution is a mix of on premise and cloud. In such a solutions part of an organizations IT infrastructure will be on premise and part on the cloud. These solutions allow organizations to pay based on their usage and needs. Cloud and hybrid solutions are more agile and can be scaled up or down based on the business's requirement.
