Including where a business wants to host its critical infrastructures, technology has given businesses more options than they’ve ever had in the past. When it comes to the decision of what to do with your infrastructure, you will usually choose between an onsite hardware implementation or the use of the cloud. Today, we’re going to discuss the benefits of both server options.

First of all, you need to know your needs for hosted computing. If you have an established history of success in hosting your own infrastructure, cloud options may complicate things in an unnecessary way. But if you are introducing new services to your team dynamic, the cloud might help expand your business’ resources.

Here are the two alternative choices:

In-House Server

While the cloud makes it possible for your team to not need a local server, they can still have amazing benefits for your company. Complete ownership brings a control that the cloud can’t offer. It can be way more expensive, but owning your infrastructure will give you freedom in the ways you approach the implementation of elements.

This can also be a perfect option for a company with an unstable or nonreliable internet source. If you don’t have access to the internet, you can still access everything you need. There are also data security compliances that need to be followed, that are different from those having to do with cloud servers.

Cloud Server

Without breaking the bank, a cloud server can help keep your business’ options open. The cloud is an effective and affordable way for small businesses to use varying resources. Cloud resources are also more scalable than physical self-hosted servers. You also won’t ever have to worry about underutilizing your hardware and can save money accordingly.

MyTek is able to help your team figure out which option will be best for you and help you maintain either one. Give us a call at 623-312-2440 today to learn more.
