Sometimes a Partial Cloud Solution is the best option to recommend for some businesses owners in three scenarios’ .
- One reason for a partial cloud solution is that certain proprietary software does not perform well in a hosted cloud environment. Some software programs, like CAD and large graphics programs require large amounts of memory and processing power and will perform better if they are located on the local machine.
- Another reason for a partial cloud solution is when a business needs to replace an old server. The owner has the option to either make an investment on a new server, which can cost $1000k’s or they can be moved to a hosted cloud solution. This requires a monthly fee based on usage. Businesses save money on capital expenditures for new hardware while still utilizing their preexisting technology.
- A third reason a business may choose a partial cloud solution is when they try it out the technology. Perhaps some of the organization is interested in moving into the cloud but other key stakeholder are not as convinced of the technology. In this case there the client may choose a project before committing to cloud environment which helps when a full Cloud environment is implemented.
