Local dedicated servers can offer great performance. However, increasing volume of data constantly requires greater resources, so you have to constantly upgrade your servers which is expensive. Many companies cannot keep up and over time suffer from performance issues. In the cloud, servers are constantly upgraded and optimised, benefitting from the latest innovation. You can expect a considerable performance improvement with applications running faster and more stable.
As your business grows you need greater resources. The only way to achieve this is to expand your local server infrastructure. In addition, to have efficiency you need experts to optimise your servers. This is an ongoing and expensive process. On the other hand, the cloud gives you instant and limitless scalability based on your dynamic resource demands. It also gives you mobility. Your staff are flexible to work and collaborate more efficiently from any location.
A world of opportunities
The cloud provides you with access to countless business productivity enhancements which are not available on-prem. Countless innovative tools and services immediately boost your business. Multiple development environments enable you to deploy bespoke tools specific to your needs. You can benefit from the best of global innovation – AI, ML, process automation, data analytics, secure efficient collaboration and much more.
Data security & backup
The cloud enables secure access to data globally and offers multiple efficient backup solutions ensuring redundancy and disaster recovery. The big cloud providers implement some of the most advanced security measures ensuring that your data is protected at all times. Though the cloud is seen by some as a higher risk of hacks, there are many advanced tools to protect your infrastructure. Some falsely believe that on-prem is safer but only a few have well implemented measures.
