Benefits of Cloud Managed Services over the On-premise server

With the advancement in technology and also realizing the benefits of cloud managed services, many small to medium-sized businesses are migrating to the cloud from their on-premise server infrastructure. But there are still a lot of businesses who are still relying on their old on-premise servers

With the on-premise servers, you will face the problems like applications running slowly, slower data processing time, high chances of data breaches, and lack of security. 

If you as a business owner facing similar types of problems, you should definitely consider moving on to a more efficient solution. Essentially you will get two options: A. Moving to the cloud services. B. Investing in another on-premise server. 

At Fridell solutions, we recommend our clients to go with the Managed cloud services as it is far better than on-site server infrastructure in terms of reliability, security, and the overall Cost.

Core benefits of Cloud Managed Services over the In-house server infrastructure:

  • Faster Setup and Deployment
  • Regular Data Backups and Disaster recovery support
  • Cybersecurity Support
  • No need for an in-house dedicated IT support team
  • Effective Collaboration
  • Compliance Support
  • Maximum uptime and high availability
  • Easier to Scale as you grow
  • More cost-effective than On-premise server infrastructure

Faster Setup and Deployment

Setting up and deploying onsite server infrastructure is a really tedious and time taking process. It requires strategic planning and a high level of expertise to build and implement an internal network infrastructure.

One of the best advantages of Cloud Managed Services is that it can be deployed within just an hour or a few days. They are also really easier to scale. You only pay for the options that you require.

Regular Data Backups and Disaster recovery support

Managed cloud services ensure that your data is safe across all of your applications and services. Data backups can be set up in the cloud services as regularly as 15-30 minutes intervals. This drastically reduces the chances of data losses in any kind of disaster situation.

Cybersecurity Support

When you are working with a managed cloud services provider, they take all the responsibility of setting up a maximum level of security and ensuring data integrity. They also take ownership of mitigating any kind of cybersecurity threats and attacks.

Fridell solutions have partnered with top-level cloud service providers like Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services incorporating best-in-class cybersecurity protection. 

No need for an in-house dedicated IT support team

When you are relying on in-house server architecture, your internal staff may not have all the required expertise/skills to efficiently set up and monitor your network infrastructure. 

So one of the main benefits of the cloud service provider is that you will get dedicated remote/onsite support from experienced IT experts 24/7. This way you can just focus on your business growth and they will do all the heavy lifting for you.

Effective Collaboration

Managed Cloud network infrastructure allows your internal employees located in various locations to work collaboratively. They can connect from anywhere using any of their devices. 

The managed cloud allows your team members to simultaneously sync, work, and share documents/files while communicating in real-time. This can really increase the efficiency of the employees and also companies can implement the BYOD policies (Bring Your Own Devices).

Maximum uptime and high availability

The server going down can really be a nightmare for businesses. One of the major downsides of having in-house network infrastructure is server downtime. 

So if you want to avoid downtime, a managed cloud is the solution for you. Most of the cloud services are designed so that there is little to no chance of failure and downtime. There is a large network of servers and even if one goes down, another one will cover up for that. This is the reason why top cloud service providers like Google, Amazon, AWS guarantees 99.999% uptime.

Easier to Scale as you grow

If you want to scale your existing on-premise server infrastructure, highly experienced and professional IT experts are required for adding additional hardware components, installing and upgrading existing software. 

Cloud servers are more flexible in terms of expanding storage, upgrading, and scaling without any hassle. 

More Cost-effective than On-premise server infrastructure

Setting up an on-site server requires a large amount of hardware and network infrastructure installation capital investment. Also, once the setup is complete, a dedicated in-house IT support team will likely be required for monitoring, maintenance, and upgrade. 

On the other hand, there is typically just a certain amount of monthly fee for managed cloud services that can be scaled as you grow. A cloud server solution is easier to set up and comparatively a lot more cost-effective in terms of maintenance and upgrades.

Still, confused on why migrate from in-house servers to cloud?

The traditional on-premise servers are very costly as it requires a large amount of initial capital investment for setting up the infrastructure. Many of these infrastructures are not even equipped to manage the latest applications as technology advances.

In-house server infrastructure requires continuous monitoring from a dedicated IT support team, constant maintenance, upgrades, security, network troubleshooting, and system administration. 

On the other hand, the demand for Cloud-based Managed Services is increasing tremendously. With cloud services, your organization will only be using resources tailored to your specific requirements, while elimination extra expenses and providing maximum efficiency. Also, the cloud infrastructure can be scaled over time as your business grows.  

Our managed cloud services include Office 365, Cloud backups, Microsoft Azure, File Sharing, Microsoft teams, AWS, and more.


To sum up, each organization owner must consider their business architecture, and make decisions being specific to their application requirements and after assessing each application.
