Should you move to the cloud or keep your infrastructure on-premise?

Our world-class data centers are powered by leading technologies, fortified with robust, multi-layer security processes and procedures to ensure your data never gets compromised.
With Virtual Cloud Servers, the expensive core computing systems historically purchased and maintained in-house are migrated to a secure, virtual, enterprise-class data center in the cloud. The result? Less physical equipment to buy and maintain; fewer onsite IT technical resources needed; lower electric bills; increased capital; and peaceful sleep, knowing your systems are running smoothly and securely protected.

So should you move to the cloud or keep your infrastructure on-premise? It's an ongoing debate among businesses. The answer depends on the technical and financial resources available to you; regulatory requirements specific to your business; your company's goals; and your perception of value for the speed, reliability, and security of your IT systems. There are some characteristic differences in the two solutions, however.
