Cloud vs On-Premise: On-Premise is Still Going Strong
We recently came across a study published by Aberdeen Research group that is focussed on the growth of Cloud Solutions. Given all the recent headlines on the rapid growth of Cloud Solutions we were a bit surprised that the Aberdeen paper found that on-premise solutions are still going strong.
Below is an excerpt from the Aberdeen paper:
“Every day, one comes across statements or truisms that people take as common knowledge but that are actually wrong. For years now, we’ve heard the constant predictions that everything would be moved to the public cloud and that businesses, and especially small to mid-sized ones, would no longer need any on-premises infrastructure at all. But these predictions have proven to be inaccurate. In fact, Aberdeen research has shown that, over the last three years, organizations have actually increased their use of on-premises servers and infrastructure. Since 2018 deployments using private cloud and on-premises systems have nearly doubled.
Tied to all of these changes is the move to hybrid cloud, which is enabling organizations to get the most out of both their public cloud resources and their on-premises server capabilities. And in response to all of these changes, businesses came to the realization that the previous driver to put every workload on the Cloud was no longer the best strategy. In fact, many organizations have put this movement into reverse, and have moved workloads from the public cloud and back to on-premises implementations.”
