On-Premise vs Cloud


Why now is the time to take to the cloud


Cloud Computing has not yet been universally adopted. 

You still have an opportunity to leap ahead - for now.


Many businesses determinedly stay on-premise under false illusions of safer data, better cost-efficiency & reliability.

Which means moving to the cloud still offers a competitive advantage.   



Many businesses are staying on-premises because they think... 




But moving to the cloud presents the opportunity to...



Their need for investment is over as they have already paid for the hardware


Their data is more secure if kept on-site


Their backups and disaster recovery are more reliable if handled in house


Cloud is less reliable and would require too great a reliance on internet connectivity


There is no need to move as all employees operate within the office


There is no need as their technology is performing sufficiently well



Remove the hidden costs and burden of maintenance, security patches, software & hardware upgrades and even downtime


Benefit from far greater security and data safety capabilities than most businesses afford to invest in, such as ISO27001, PCI-DSS and SOC 2:1 and data privacy expertise


Entrust their data to more reliable, more resilient disaster recovery services that are faster to restore, more regularly tested and better managed than any on-site measures


Modern cloud service providers are able to mitigate slow data flows and perform far better than VPN connections


Instantly enable remote working capabilities, that 2020 has shown as a staple requirement for all businesses - often resulting in greater productivity 


Futureproof the business with innovative, high-performance equipment and the latest technical skills that individual businesses cannot invest in  


Be more productive, lower your costs and use your data more powerfully and safely
