Why Choose Cloud Vs On-Premise For UC?

State Of Cloud

By George Bardissi, President & CEO of BVoIP

We get this question every day honestly. There a numerous reasons why on-premise is not the right way to go any longer where it may have been in the past. Unless you are in an area where there is simply no affordable access to fast and solid internet then cloud the is right answer.

Why?

Let’s go through the main reasons:

  1. Stability: Installing a machine on-site has been done for ages but when that machine goes down you have an issue. How quickly can someone get to you to fix it? Are you backing it up? Are you making sure the backup works? How often do you service and maintain that equipment? Do you just want for it to break before you do anything? These are OLD problems that quite frankly have not very good results in today’s age of instant access and fast resolution. On-premise in today’s IT world mean slow resolution and down time when something breaks unless you invest in costly redundant systems and then make sure you have service agreements in place to monitor that system.
