“The Cloud” is one of the most exciting and confusing technologies today.
It promises unlimited potential for storage capacity, computing performance, built-in collaboration and 24×7 secure access from the Internet, but is it right for you? And if so, which vender, which solution?
The answer is not nearly as clear cut as cloud providers would like you to believe.
Moving to the cloud is not like buying a “product”
Cloud adoption is indeed a powerful tool in the world of technology, but it’s not like buying a product.
The decision to implement or fully transition to cloud should not be based solely on cost—it is one of many a factors.
Cloud solutions may indeed save you money, but they may also introduce complexity and risk. Cloud might even cost you more than your traditional systems in some cases.
To make a good decision, you need expertise in servers, networks, security, legal, business, and even regulatory compliance.
Why We Recommend Microsoft Cloud Solutions
If a better, more holistic solution becomes available, we’ll be the first to let you know. We chose Microsoft, not the other way around.
