Cloud Vs On-Premise: IT Infrastructure Model of Your Choice?
IT infrastructure has been undergoing transition over decades.
The IT industry has matured to a stage where infrastructure maintenance is easily manageable from the level of traditional hardware with heavy maintenance.
Cloud is one solution in that journey that simplified IT maintenance concerns by taking care of core infrastructure aspects over the network. However, Cloud deployment is not a complete answer because of the strong preferences for on-premise solutions on the other side.
While Cloud handles infrastructure over the network, on-premise solutions (as the name suggests) deal with infrastructure at organizational premises or on-site.
However, both solutions aim to reduce organizational costs and maintenance burdens through the implementation of agile IT infrastructure.
Cloud has already proved to be cost-effective and easier for small businesses, majorly for its agile and flexible integrations at affordable costs.
But how about infrastructure management at the enterprise level that maintains strict data policies? To what extent will Cloud be successful here? Will they have to look for an on-premises model?
