As many businesses choose to move to the cloud, some are finding out that it isn’t the best fit for their circumstances. Moving to the cloud may actually end up being redundant and/or costly, thereby causing more harm than good. Just because there is a new trend doesn’t necessarily mean it should be followed; in the case of your business, it is important to avoid making an uninformed decision that may hurt you. Luckily, Technology Solutions, LLC is here to help your company make informed and knowledgeable decisions for a better return on investment and to move you forward.

Here are a few reasons why moving to the cloud may not be the best choice for your business:

  • “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” If you have already spent hundreds or even thousands on an onsite storage system that works efficiently for your business and it has no problems then leave it be. Depending on the size of your business right now, your current system may be what’s best as your company continues to flourish. Putting money and resources towards moving to the cloud is likely to be pointless if your business uses limited storage or growth isn’t dependant on storage size.
  • Internet access is required for the cloud. This may be limited to those who need to access data mainly offline. Also, without the need for the internet, you can save more by not paying for bandwidth.
  • Your company’s privacy and safety may be more at risk. Trusting your data to a data center located who knows where also means believing that your data is safe. The problem with some cloud services is cybersecurity, and as threats and hacks continue to grow and evolve, your information is likely to not be safe in an unsecured cloud. With an on-prem storage system, you have better control, and you can manually monitor all of your data in one place.

The pros and cons of moving to the cloud or moving to premise storage have to do with the unique business itself. While these are some general reasons, they don’t apply to all companies.
