Imagine being freed from the responsibility of system updates and maintenance, granting you more time to focus on your core business activities.

By transitioning from on-premise to cloud-hosted technology, you achieve precisely that. Join us as we explore the differences between the two while shedding light on why your company should think about moving to the cloud.

What is On-premise Technology?

On-premises technology, often abbreviated as ‘on-prem,’ consists of infrastructure located and managed within an organisation’s physical premises, such as data centres or servers.

What does this entail for you?

You are responsible for patching, servicing hardware, and other items related to the care and feeding of the environment.

What is Cloud-Hosted Technology?

Cloud technologies encompass services and applications hosted in  data centres, enabling your organisation to access resources from anywhere.

What does this entail for you?

Partnering with a cloud provider, such as New Era Technology, allows you to delegate security, infrastructure costs, and service maintenance, relieving you of the associated burdens.

Advantages of Cloud-Hosted Technology

Both cloud and on-premises deployments support applications, but cloud-hosted technology offers several compelling advantages over on-premises solutions. In a nutshell, choosing the cloud is safer, faster to deploy, cost-effective, and highly scalable. Cloud hosting also enhances accessibility and flexibility, allowing users to access their information from virtually anywhere with an internet connection. While on-premises solutions offer greater control, they tend to become increasingly expensive and demand substantial maintenance over time. Transitioning to the cloud allows organisations to embrace subscription or usage-based pricing models. Additionally, cloud solutions eliminate the need for physical hardware, resulting in cost-effectiveness by eliminating the requirement to invest in and maintain infrastructure.

  • Accessibility: Information is accessible from anywhere with an internet connection.
  • Security: Cloud hosting is a secure choice.
  • Cost-Effective: Cloud solutions often offer cost savings.
  • Scalability: Cloud technology can easily adapt to your needs.
  • Rapid Deployment: It’s quick to implement.
