cloud computing vs dedicated servers

Will cloud computing solutions replace the dedicated server hosting? Well this question you might have seen on many websites and it is obvious because everyone is talking about it as more companies’ even start-ups are using or willing to use cloud solutions. So is this the way the IT industry is headed?

In my personal opinion – NO

Most of the authors’ opinions are actually based on Gartner’s predictions; a leading technology research company.

Dedicated Servers Or Cloud Servers – What To Choose?

The large volume of information that you must manage within the corporate structure pushes more and more data managers to turn to professional web hosting solutions. Unfortunately, the clarity of ideas about business requirements (increased bandwidth, flexibility in data management, advanced e-mail and so on) do not always correspond to equal clarity regarding the choice of services to be requested.

Because of the strong marketing action that affected the IT managers in recent years, we often tend to think that cloud computing services are the only answer to all your business issues. Promoted by industry researchers and analysts as the technology of the future, the “cloud” would seem to be just the one chosen by most of the companies. However, this belief does not always lead to success. Very often it happens that by focusing on the willingness to adopt advanced computer facilities, you do not make the correct assessments of the cost / benefit ratio. read more
