Imagine you are the owner of a small software development firm and you want to scale your business up. However, a small team size the insufficient ability on demand and limited resources are roadblocks for this expansion. That we hear about cloud computing but before investing money into it you decide to drop the differences between on-premises and cloud-based computing to make a better decision. When it comes to scalability you pay more for an on-premises setup and get lesser options too. Once you scale up it’s difficult to scale down and often leads to heavy losses. In terms of infrastructure and maintenance costs. Cloud computing on the other hand allows you to pay only for how much you use with much easier and faster probations for scaling up or down. Server storage, on-premises systems need a lot of space for their servers notwithstanding the power and maintenance that come with them. On the other hand, cloud computing solutions are offered by cloud service providers who manage and maintain the servers. Saving you both money and space. Data security, on-premises systems offer less data security thanks to the complicated communication of physical and traditional IT security managers. Whereas cloud computing systems offer much better security and let you avoid having to constantly manage and monitor security protocols.
