Microsoft Azure vs. On-Prem: What’s best for your business?

With so many companies moving over to the cloud, it’s obvious that a lot of companies are seeing the benefits of Azure. However, is it right for your company? 

You understandably may still be hesitant to make a move over. After all, shifting to a cloud-based system will inevitably be a massive change for your business — which means that you need to make sure that moving forward to Microsoft Azure is the right choice for you.

We believe that anyone should be able to make the move over. That’s why in this article, we’ll go over the benefits and drawbacks of both on-premise (on-prem) and cloud-based (Azure) solutions. 

We’ll also explore why Azure is the superior option in the modern world, and how you can get started today! 

On-Prem Solutions

An on-premises IT solution is essentially when all of your applications, data, and systems are contained within your own internal computer servers. 

This infrastructure is a relic of a pre-cloud era of technology, where systems would be stored on physical server hardware within an organisation. 

There are certain reasons for wanting to keep your systems in-house. However, most of these reasons are incredibly irrelevant to the day-to-day running of an organisation. Realistically, a cloud-based solution is enough for most organisations’ needs.



Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure is a public cloud hosting system – in which your systems and applications are hosted online.

The multitude of advantages of the cloud means that many businesses are looking toward Azure as the future of cloud computing.



Which is Right for your Business?

On-prem solutions are often excessive for most businesses, and mainly only benefit organisations that operate in the government sector or medical sector, or other similar fields. And, even then — on-prem solutions are a precaution for a problem that is incredibly rare. And so, there’s no real reason not to make a move to the future of computing today!

Cloud computing has many advantages over traditional servers and often runs at a much lower operating cost. This is the crucial advantage of Azure over on-prem solutions and is the reason why many companies are making a move over to the cloud.
