Storage On-Premise in a Hybrid World

Over the last few years there has been much debate over the strengths and limitations of cloud and on-premise storage solutions, with many asking which is better or if one may be better suited to their needs? For many organisations, the perfect solution may lie somewhere in the middle with a hybrid storage solution that combines both the cloud and on-premise.

Since the advent of the cloud, it has undeniably transformed the way we do business and has delivered the ability to scale to new capabilities, business models, experiences and efficiencies across every sector around the world.

The cloud was once hailed as the only option for storing data and many believed it would remove the need for organisations to run their own on-premise servers or use data centres. But issues such as data gravity, latency, application dependency and compliance mean that in reality a large portion, in fact nearly three-quarters, of apps and data need to live in data centres or on-premise.

Once seen as outdated, on-premise storage and infrastructure is still a desirable option for organisations that need to how their data is being stored and where it is located or those that want the performance and security that on-premise storage solutions provide.

When the hybrid world came along, organisations no longer had to choose between on-premise solutions or the cloud, they could benefit from combining the two technologies to create a storage solution that gave them the best of both worlds.

Events in recent months have highlighted that organisations need to be able to adapt and move quickly to rapidly changing landscapes.
