Deciding between on premise and cloud environment for database is a complex process, whereby a number of factors come into play. For starters, the business requirements need to be properly analyzed to tip the scale toward one approach or another. Once decided, then there is the need to choose a reliable technology partner, which can be troublesome as there are multiple vendors offering services of varying levels.

Companies are opting on premise/cloud database solutions based on something unique and after proper consideration to determine which type of solution would be a perfect fit for your organization. Below are some of the key things that you need to consider when choosing between an on premise and cloud solution:

  1. Performance
  2. Deployment
  3. Control
  4. Security
  5. Compliance
  6. Cost comparison
  7. Mobility

Even though the cloud storage market has continued to grow into a multi-billion-dollar industry, there are misconceptions about the technology still abound. In the “cloud vs. on-premise” debate, a common misperception has been that cloud storage performance is inferior to that of on-premises or vice-versa.
Moving applications to the public cloud involves careful planning and assessment, including identifying the cloud services most suited to your organization’s needs. For applications with high-performance requirements, storage performance is often a deciding factor. For applications that leverage file shares in the cloud (for example, databases, analytics, etc), specific performance demands must often be met before deployment in or migration to the cloud.
