Top 5 Reasons Companies are Moving to the Cloud

  • If you are not working for Dell, IBM, or work in a data center then you should not own a server.  Do you know how to repair a hard drive or recover from the ‘blue screen of death’?   Why not let people who know how to fix server problems, fix them?
  • Why spend $10,000 on a server that is worth half that in 9 months when you rent it?  We can provide the same power of a typical server for less than $150 per month.  It would take more than 5 years to pay off that same server – what do you think it would be worth then?   Operating cost vs capital expense.  Save your money.  Use it to build your business, not your stockpile of servers worth nothing in 5 years.
  • How long does it take to get a new software application online?  You have to figure out what kind of server and software you need, order it from Dell and wait for 10 business days for it to be delivered, 2-3 days for your techs to install and configure the server, and 1 or 2 days to for your programmers to work out the bugs and get the new software application online.  A total of 3 to 4 WEEKS.  Use a cloud server from a professional data center and you can literally be up and running with your choice of operation system and database server software in 15 minutes!
  • What does it take to ‘upgrade your server’ to accommodate a new business?   If you went viral tomorrow, would your server be able to handle the traffic?  If you are on a cloud server, you can simply log into the control panel from your favorite provider and simply add resources.   If you are working on your own server + are lucky enough to have it available in your data center, you would need to take the server off-line, install the memory or additional processing power, and turn it back – then hope it works as expected.   Think of the time saved, not to mention the labor costs.
  • Reliability.  A true cloud server environment is backed by a profession data cloud that should offer a 100% uptime guarantee 24/7/365 monitoring of all critical systems and security from multiple locations, plus technical support and service any time and every time you need it.
