On Prem Cloud Solutions
Maintain easy, fast, secure access for your critical data and applications with on prem solutions from SCC.
Tailored IT environments are crucial for every organisation. From on prem to private cloud and multiple public clouds, each setup has evolved uniquely over the years. It’s common for businesses to have a combination of these, hence the need for a smooth-operating hybrid cloud environment.
While many strive to deliver their cloud first strategy, on prem infrastructure remains essential to unify experiences, deliver value from IT strategies and enable modernisation. That’s why any digital transformation and cloud modernisation strategies should take on prem into account, and this is where the expertise of the right cloud provider can be vital.
Data security and compliance
There are some industries and use cases where data is subject to strict compliance and security demands. Furthermore, these demands can vary substantially from one country to another. In these situations, the public cloud is not suitable for governing data security, access and control, as well as where it’s stored at any given time. On prem delivers an alternative for security-conscious businesses and industries hesitant to adopt the cloud.
Performance and latency
If applications or workloads need high-performance computing and/or low latency, with a private or public cloud there is a risk of not always delivering this level of service. This is because resources may not be dedicated to the workloads in question, and data may be geographically located too far away; on prem solves these issues of location and latency.
Workloads that involve heavy-duty data processing, large amounts of data transfers, or the need for specialist hardware configurations can be difficult to manage in public cloud. On prem is often the best or even only viable solution for heavy-duty workloads.
Legacy systems and integrations
Older systems and needlessly complex IT infrastructures can not only hold a business back, but can make it extremely difficult to migrate data, systems and applications into the public cloud. In some cases, these legacy systems are only compatible with on prem infrastructures.
Why on prem cloud?
Around half of all business data worldwide is now hosted and managed in the cloud, and that proportion is growing all the time. However, employing public cloud as a sole solution is not the only choice. For many use cases, on prem cloud solutions should be considered as complementary to an organisation’s wider cloud first strategy, effectively tackling security concerns and enabling convenient and cost-effective data storage and processing. On prem computing enables physical data access, allowing IT staff to retain more control over the server hardware, data configuration, security and management. This means internal teams have access to data and important information, and no third party can access it remotely.
