Comparing Cost and Control Between In-House Architectures and Cloud

Comparing Cost and Control Between In-House Architectures and Cloud

The benefits of the cloud are almost too numerable to count, but you shouldn’t let this dissuade you from other possibilities. After all, what works for one business may not work for another. For organizations that don’t find the cloud to be the best method of data distribution, an in-house infrastructure is absolutely critical. How can you determine which of these solutions is ideal for your business?

Let’s take a look at two features that will be a major deciding factor for your infrastructure design: cost and control.

Capital is one of the most crucial parts of any business. After all, it’s your goal to make money from your organization, so you want to make sure that you’re able to comfortably afford your operational equipment. An outsourced cloud provider has an advantage over an in-house infrastructure in regard to the cost of maintenance. Financially, it takes a considerable amount of capital to maintain your infrastructure, especially if it’s located in-house. Your in-house technology infrastructure contains expensive technology, and it only grows more expensive when you have to power it and maintain it as well.

An outsourced provider will only provide a flat monthly rate designed around a service level agreement, which makes it easy to place into your budget. Operating a server in-house can be a bigger investment, so choosing to outsource gives your organization the opportunity to dedicate those resources to something else.

It’s natural to want control over your infrastructure. Unfortunately, this desire for control can keep you from investing in a solution like outsourced cloud hosting, even if it is beneficial for your organization. If you are worried about having full control over your business’s infrastructure, perhaps it would be easier on your nerves and your management style to focus on your in-house network. However, outsourcing can be just as relieving, as it removes the responsibility of managing your technology completely, freeing up even more time and resources for other uses. It basically comes down to how much you trust either your in-house team or your managed service provider.
