Cloud computing v Onsite servers
Cloud computing offers the ability to efffectively spread the payments for IT Infrastructure over many years with no ongoing maintenance costs - ever! Don't have IT staff - fantastic, support is available quickly because the equipment is located in the offices of the cloud provider and by the time you will have made the call, they are more than likely working hard to resolve the problem.
Am I likely to see problems?
Rarely. Your server will be managed to ensure downtime is a rarity and when something does go wrong, the technicians will already 'be onsite' to fix the problem. Also, cloud computing installations are high end, and use the best equipment to ensure maximum uptime and minimum downtime. Compare this against managing your own equipment in house. Most companies buy IT equipment that they can afford rather than what they need. This results in problems such as over utilisation and quicker costlier replacements. With cloud it can grow with you and your business.
