Greater ROI with Cloud Services Than Onsite IT Solutions

Posted on 6 February 2018 | 4:15 am by

One of the most stressful decisions you might ever have to make is whether you will go for cloud services, or you will just stick with your onsite IT infrastructure. There are a lot of things you have to take into consideration. From ramp up time to migration costs, all of these have to be studied, which makes the whole move requiring both money and time on your part.

However, instead of dwelling on this initial concern, it is a must to project your long term ROI or return on investment that you can expect to get. This return on investment is not always something strictly monetary. This could also come in the form of improved customer service, greater efficiency on new staff and client onboarding, and more available space in the office.

To completely understand if your business can benefit from cloud services or from the traditional onsite data center, there are four fundamental factors you have to consider:

Capital Investment

It is no secret that when you invest in an onsite data center, you will have to spend a substantial upfront investment for securing the space, the technology, as well as the people who will create and overlook it. Simply put, you will have to do a bit of math to identify the overall price of ownership of the onsite option as compared to an infrastructure platform based on the cloud.

As stated earlier, onsite options usually call for extra hands-on technical support which comes at some additional costs. Meanwhile, cloud services outsource this possibility then distribute the price of maintenance to the whole subscriber base which makes it a more affordable option for all.


When you like to double your current capacity overnight, it can be difficult to do it with your physical data center. Most of the time, additional software and hardware are needed to make it possible. On the other hand, cloud services give you the chance to scale down or up anytime you feel like doing so. Through this, you will be paying exactly for what are using.

Ease of Use

An on-premise data center needs a substantial amount of specific support for its management. In the event that this support is not available 24/7, which can be quite expensive, you might find yourself in an uncomfortable position where you have to say your apologies to your clients for the prolonged and unexpected downtime.

With cloud services, it is standard to have support 24/7. For a low fee every month, you will have the peace of mind knowing you will have an industry-leading support, speed, and uptime.


When you are managing risky and complex software updates, it is essential to have test environments. It is a must that you know how a certain update will affect the user base prior to rolling this out to everyone.

The use of cloud services instead of the usual onsite solution can give you a chance to quickly establish your virtual testing environment with no need to experience the hassle of preparing a physical workstation.
