'Cloud Computing' v 'On-Premise Solutions'

Following Julian's fine post I thought I'd offer my thoughts on Cloud Computing too as a separate blog that I posted here too…



'Cloud Computing' v 'On-Premise Solutions'

There may be benefits for increasing usage of cloud computing; however there are important factors to take into consideration before any decision is made…

May I suggest some of the following advantages and disadvantages, the pros and cons of deciding whether to move to 'Cloud Computing' or continue with 'On-Premise Solutions'

The most obvious considerations of Cloud Computing & alternative solutions remain initial cost & investment, continuing cost, security, IT personnel & organisation, and any advantages following specific conversions and modifications.

Possible cloud computing advantages:
1. Reduce expenditure & possibility of larger solution applications

2. Removal of your redundant company servers & ancillary equipment.

3. Possibility to reduce & cut down on staffing levels of IT personnel & expenditure.


Possible cloud computing disadvantages:

1. Important security issues and possible consequences as your data is normally stored (& shared on Cloud) with other companies' data.

2. Almost total dependence on internet connectivity - if your internet links & broadband 'goes down' you will endure serious interruptions.

3. Increased costs over the longer term - rather similar to leasing or renting cars compared to buying vehicles outright.

4. Far more complicated & possibly impractical to enjoy software customisation & upgrades because customisation & upgrades are not normally available or helpful with Cloud Computing.

In summary:
Cloud computing may have excellent advantages for business with limited resources.

It may be helpful too for organisations and offices that can function seamlessly & for long periods without any internet in the (rare but nevertheless possible) situation of internet interruptions and breakdown.

However, 'on-premise servers' are probably still better for larger businesses that may use customised systems & homegrown solutions to achieve advantage over their competition. And almost certainly better for businesses with 'mission-critical' applications which they cannot afford to be without for any period of time….

Individual businesses need to make their own minds up of course & as ever probably best not to be swayed simply by common usages, newer fads & a 'follow the herd' mentality.

Be sensible and do your own due diligence on this, possibly very important, decision…

Possible cloud computing disadvantages "NONE"

1. Important security issues and possible consequences as your data is normally stored (& shared on Cloud) with other companies' data. Security isn't about where the data is stored it's about people. Any computer that is connected to the Internet is under threat, so if your data is on your own machine; is it safer than data on say Google servers? I would say no it's not. 2. Almost total dependence on internet connectivity - if your internet links & broadband 'goes down' you will endure serious interruptions. It is true that if Internet connectivity is lost then you will endure serious interruptions. However this is also true of other services we take for granted, the main ones affecting business being electricity and telephone services, if either one of these is interrupted then they will probably affect your business seriously, however no one worries about this. 3. Increased costs over the longer term - rather similar to leasing or renting cars compared to buying vehicles outright. It depends how you measure the costs, if you take into account the cost savings through not having a massive IT department, then I think you would find it's a much cheaper solution in the long run. 4. Far more complicated & possibly impractical to enjoy software customisation & upgrades because customisation & upgrades are not normally available or helpful with Cloud Computing. I see where you are coming from, however if we go back to the electricity analogy the customisation you are suggesting is like saying you want the electrical suppliers to supply you with 120 volts instead of the normal 240v. It's just not a customisation that would be entertained by anyone; if you wanted 120 volts you would install your own transformer. Going back to "cloud computing" basically it is the facility to store data on someone else's computer. The aspect which would not be customizable would be the standard interface provided, however you can easily tap into the data directly and provide your own interface or as you say customisation.

It was really strange that even before I finished reading your article about this Kate I began to feel that you were a kind-hearted person. Your article is very interesting and helped me a lot as I'm going to wear this wedding dresses. I am looking forward to better articles from you, introducing to us various styles of cheap wedding dresses and want to make friends with you. Recently I have been promoting this Alfred Angelo wedding dress.

'Cloud Computing' v 'On-Premise Solutions'

cracking advice Norm, there is too much thought on what cloud can do and not enough about the impact to businesses. Down time impacts are the key to all of this - and often overlooked, plus these days there are so many additional products which allow a office to function with out the need for a cloud. Even on a basic level there are some great NAS boxes around at the moment Euworld Solutions European and World IT Support Solutions
