While there might be some lengthy debates on public cloud hosting vs. private cloud hosting, there’s definitely instances where the case is pretty cut and dry. If you run or manage a business private cloud hosting is absolutely mandatory for a myriad of reasons, and if you’re thinking of going with public hosting you’ll unknowingly sabotage your chances of success. Here are a few reasons why it’s absolutely vital that your business goes private instead of public.
The information age has brought a lot of new ideas and innovations with it, but unfortunately, crime has kept up every step of the way. It’s not uncommon to read an article about a celebrity having their privacy compromised and exposed to the masses or about people who’s identities were stolen, being left penniless over the course of 24 hours. Don’t end up another cyber crime victim!
Public cloud hosting might be a short-term way of saving money, but the trade-off is that it’s well…public. It means you’re potentially sharing a server with hundreds of thousands of other people. When there’s nothing but flimsy, virtual drywall separating you from your neighbors, there’s not a lot stopping someone from breaking in and making off with valuable company files, records, and data. Save yourself a fortune later, by going private now.
If you’re given a choice between taking your Lamborghini to work or taking the bus which would you choose? You can take the faster, and more efficient Lambo or you can save a few bucks on gas and opt to take the slower, crowded bus. I don’t know about you, but I’d take the Lambo for one simple reason: Time is money.
It’s the same principle when applied public hosting vs. private. With private you’re guaranteed your own space, with faster speeds as opposed to its public access counterpart that’s forever stuck at a static speed with an ever-increasing amount of users.
