What is On-Premises & Hybrid Cloud?
Whilst modern cloud solutions provide powerful benefits to many businesses, onsite servers still hold unique advantages. A modern approach to business infrastructure doesn't mean choosing between on-premise or cloud architecture, but combining the strengths of both.
A hybrid cloud model blends cloud and on-premise technology to maximise areas such as network stability, business continuity, security and compliance in a way that is also cost efficient.
- Ensure third-party systems integrate well with both your hardware and cloud systems to confirm it works well in the overall ecosystem.
- Where possible, keep business-critical tasks accessible to your premises at all times. This includes anything ensuring the survivability of the business or requiring the most security.
- Maximise the speed of your systems by planning which workloads will work best on cloud or on-premise systems.
- Allow the same login to work seamlessly across both on-premise and cloud systems smoothing user experience and improving business efficiency.
- Keep an eye on security; using hybrid systems entails moving data between two systems which, together with the size of cloud structures, results in greater exposure to vulnerabilities.
- Check any relevant compliance requirements for your sector.
Benefits from doing this well
- Provide on-demand access to the same hyper-scale cloud system mega online corporations use drastically improving your technology capacity and scalability for a fraction of the price.
- Utilise existing equipment and security systems by building on these systems rather than requiring capital expenditure to replace them.
- Give your teams access to more diverse tools and therefore faster and stronger outputs.
- Boost system performance and speed whilst maintaining constant and convenient access to your hardware.
- Increase security by including air-gapped options in your hybrid model - systems that never come in contact with the internet.
- Maintain ownership of critical hardware, offering you full autonomy over its access and use.
- Maximise day-to-day speed whilst maintaining productivity even if your city’s internet goes down.
