Although cloud computing has taken a lot of the workload from servers, they still hold a key positioning a networking system. Servers have many different functions and are an important part of your computer network, if you do not have the correct server functionality you could be holding your business back. This is why many companies choose to go down the route of server outsourcing.
Benefits of outsourcing your server functionality:
Reduction in Cost
Having your own in-house server is a massive financial investment for a company, outsourcing your server means your company not only saves money on hardware costs, but also on manpower to support and monitor the server.
Greater support and reduced risk
Paying for outsourced server support is much cheaper than paying to support your own server and storing your servers or renting virtual space in a dedicated facility eliminates many potential risks, such as management, security, downtime and data loss.
Scalability and flexibility
How do you know your business may not need to upscale or downscale? If you have your own server, you are fixed to the limits of that server. A change like this on an outsourced server can be done within a few minutes and is much more flexible.
A lack of capacity can threaten business growth which can have devastating impact on overall revenue and profitability. The problem with capacity is you usually don’t realise how much you need until you run out. With outsourcing yore server functionality, increasing capacity is much simpler and quicker.
