Data Center, Cloud Solution, or Hybrid?

All companies, no matter the size, collect and rely on their data. And that data needs a place to reside, which means you either store it in a data center or rely on a third-party cloud for your data-storage needs. The key question is: Which is the right solution for your business?

Why the Data Center?

An on-premise data center hosts a collection of servers, that you keep on site to serve your data-storage needs. Some people see this as a disadvantage; you have to purchase the server hardware along with networking hardware. Like any technology, it will age and need to be replaced.

Of course, there are a number of advantages to this model as well. First, you have complete control over your data and equipment. No one, other than your people, have access. Since you own the hardware and software, customizations are much easier.

Finally, if you are running any legacy systems, you can set up an environment that caters to these solutions. This gives you flexibility when it comes to migrating to a newer system on your own terms.

Why the Cloud?

With a cloud-based solution, you store your data on someone else’s hardware and infrastructure.

Benefits associated with cloud-based data is cost and scalability. Because you aren’t paying up-front costs to purchase hardware and infrastructure, you see instant savings. Also, you only pay for what you need so that you don’t have servers sitting dormant and waiting to be put to use.

This leads into the scalability argument. When you need additional space, it’s readily available. It may cost a bit more, but it is there when you need it. However, often times companies end up using much more than they budget and their costs end up being higher than expected.
