The Cloud vs. On-Premises Exchange

 

Capital savings and ROI benefits

  • Avoid capital expenditure. There’s no hardware to buy or software to license, so you don’t need to sink your capital into on-premise infrastructure.
  • Make your costs more predictable. Intermedia’s services let you consolidate your expenses into simple, monthly per-user fees.
  • Reduce your opportunity costs. By freeing your IT staff from maintenance, they’ll be able to stay focused on the value they add to your business.
  • Lower your power and Internet bills. With less need for on-premise servers, you’ll use less bandwidth and lower your electric bills.
  • Improve your revenue per square foot. Shifting servers into the cloud frees up the real estate you’ve dedicated to on-premise hardware.

Security and business continuity benefits

  • Assure the reliability of your systems. Our datacenters possess extensive electrical redundancies, multiple Internet connections and comprehensive data backup strategies.
  • Keep your business data safe. Our datacenters far exceed the physical security standards most businesses could achieve on their own.
  • Protect yourself from digital threats. Beyond our McAfee anti-spam and anti-malware tools, we monitor our network 24/7 to protect your data and services.
  • Simplify business continuity. Your company data can be accessed from anywhere, at any time, which simplifies disaster planning and recovery.

IT and business agility benefits

  • Extend Fortune 500-style communication and collaboration tools. Empower your people with the latest and most powerful business software.
  • Stay secure and up-to-date. We perform upgrades and patches to keep you current without any effort on your part.
  • Make your company more mobile. You can access your cloud via desktop apps, the web, or with iOS, Android, Blackberry and other devices.
  • Synchronize data across different devices. A user’s work on one device is automatically synced across every other device.
  • Develop a hybrid cloud solution. We offer tools for maintaining elements of your infrastructure on-premise, if you choose to do so.
  • Add users and services on the fly. It’s simple to scale your business to bring on new employees, locations, and tools for doing business.

Service and support benefits

  • Receive free onboarding and migration. To simplify your transition to the cloud, our experts set up your cloud environment and move over all your users and their data.
  • Rest easy with 24/7 phone and chat support. No matter what time you need us, we’ll typically answer your calls within 60 seconds.
