Challenges of Supporting a Remote Workforce Underscore Value of Maintenance Partners

With Remote Work becoming the new normal, more and more Companies are shifting their Database to the Cloud. Cloud Storage of Data enables accessing Applications and Services Remotely through the Internet, anytime and anywhere. Basically, Off-premises Cloud Storage come with a set of tools which enable your Business to store, operate and organize Data with greater efficiency than On-site Data Centers. This is why Remote Working has become so successful.

According to a recent Study conducted by Uptime Institute's 10th Annual Uptime Institute Global Survey of IT and Data Center Managers, the dependence of Enterprises on On-premise Data Centers has dropped to 54% as opposed to 58% in the Year 2020. While Cloud Storage enables Off-premises Storage and Access Handling of Data, Organizations have On-premises or On-prem Data Centers as well.

The huge scalability scope of Cloud Data Center is what makes it a viable choice over On-site Data Centers. Off-site Cloud Data Centers also come with the advantage of Low-cost Maintenance. In case of On-premise Data Centers, however, the Cost of Power, Upgrades, Security, Environmental Controls (HVAC) etc., further add to the Infrastructure Management Expenditure. Whereas, a Cloud Provider divides Maintenance Costs into easy Monthly Subscription Fee Structure.

Hybrid Cloud : A Smart Investment

Public Cloud Usage is expected to become 12% in the Year 2022 as opposed to 8% in the Year 2020. This trend suggests that more and more Enterprises are opting for a Cloud-based Data Center. Although a purely Cloud Based Data Center seems more advantageous than an On-premise data Center, opting for a Hybrid Data Center System is rather beneficial. A Hybrid Cloud System enables utilizing the benefits of both types of Data Centers. The adaptation of Cloud Data is gradually increasing but it is not leaving behind its predecessor. According to the Uptime Institute, it is expected that two-thirds of IT Workloads will continue to stay On-premise in 2022. A Customized Hybrid Solution is a concoction of Stability and Speed offered by the Cloud, and the Control and familiarity of the On-premise Data Center. Without complete Migration and Commitment to Cloud, you still get all the benefits of a Cloud Platform. Both Cloud and On-premise Data Centers can act as backups for each other. In addition, a Hybrid Data Center can also operate behind a Firewall which adds to the Security.
