Data Center & Cloud Migrations

Traditional Data Centers vs. the Cloud

Cloud computing solutions are becoming more and more popular as they provide many benefits when compared to traditional data storage centers, including much more attractive initial and ongoing costs.

The Differences

The most obvious difference between the two options, infrastructure on-premise or in-the-cloud, is that the cloud is a way of storing information off-premise and on the internet, typically hosted from robust data centers. On-premise hardware systems store data within your local network.

Cloud services are often outsourced to third-party providers who can perform updates and regular maintenance. Data centers are often leveraged and run by the hosting firm’s IT team.

In order to decide what’s best for you, you should understand: your business needs, your data security requirements and the differences in cost.
