For enterprises that require ultra-low-latency services or need to keep data safely inside their own firewall, upgrading to the latest generation of on-premises infrastructure can reduce cost and risk while introducing many of the flexibility and cost-efficiency benefits of the public cloud.
Leading vendors have on-premises offerings designed to match their cloud technology stacks, potentially smoothing the path to a future cloud migration. What’s more, they offer flexible leasing and licensing models designed to mimic the utility or pay-as-you-use approach that is standard in the public cloud. For example, storage and application servers can be configured with additional headroom for future growth needs, but with no additional charges until the spare capacity is actually used.
