Retracing Steps: The March Back From the Public Cloud to On-Prem.

Not exactly, but the public cloud isn’t right for every workload

The cloud is great for moving workloads around, but it’s not always the cheapest solution. In fact, the more workloads you move to the cloud, the more it costs. That’s probably no surprise, given that the cloud requires dedicated resources like servers and bandwidth.Nevertheless, this cost can be a major deterrent for some businesses. After all, who wants to shell out extra money just to perform a simple task like juggling dozens

Many companies are now looking at ways to reduce their cloud bills, as it becomes increasingly clear that the expense is not going away any time soon. One way to do this is to create a more efficient infrastructure, which can be achieved by adopting newer technologies and methods. This means foregoing some of the current cloud benefits in favor of greater efficiency and cost savings down the line.

In a world where DevOps is becoming the norm, many organizations are re-evaluating their cloud strategies. Moving back on-prem may seem like an easy solution – but would it be the best move for your company? There are a few reasons why you might want to reconsider this idea: One, maybe you were misled by cost savings estimates – public clouds offer greater agility and potential cost savings in the long term. Two, maybe you moved to the cloud because of its ability to streamline process and improve collaboration between teams. Public clouds make it easy for different departments to work together collaboratively and share resources more efficiently. If these benefits aren’t important enough for your organization, then consider whether your team is ready for such a large shift. With public clouds constantly evolving and adapting to meet user needs, moving back on-prem could end up being too big of a change for them – or even cause irreparable damage if not executed correctly!

When I was in my early 20s and the company I worked for grew quickly, we were forced to purchase additional servers and hardware that we didn’t need. The procurement process was inherently time-consuming, as we had to plan out how many servers we wanted, then put in an order with our vendor. Even if we wanted to rack and stack the servers ourselves, there wasn’t always enough staff who could do that skillfully. As a result, companies have been slowly transitioning to the cloud DevOps world – where they can outsource server planning and procurement entirely. This not only saves time, but also eliminates any security risks or vulnerabilities caused by insufficient server capacity

In the face of mounting criticism, some of the top cloud infrastructure players have made it difficult to move workloads between clouds. This makes little sense for companies, as it becomes increasingly expensive and difficult to switch back on-premises whenever a new cloud is deemed more suitable.

Despite the widespread rhetoric in favor of on-premise software, companies seem to be far from ready to return their data and applications back to their data centers. While some experts believe that many companies are only pretending to move back onto-prem, others say the cloud is simply too beneficial a solution for most businesses.

The cloud infrastructure market is vast and growing

There are a number of reasons why the cloud infrastructure market is slowing down. With uncertainties in the economy, companies are scaling back their investments, especially in areas like data centers. Additionally, many organizations have shifted more workloads to the cloud to reduce costs and improve efficiency. This has diminished demand for traditional Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) products. However, newer services that are designed to help automate and simplify cloud deployments will continue to be in high demand by businesses over the next few years.

Inevitably, the problems in China and a strengthening US dollar have had an overall damping effect on Cloud infrastructure spending in 2022. Servers shipped to enterprises grew by 3%, however this slow growth seems unlikely to last. Over the next few years we expect strong cloud growth to continue outpacing enterprise server investment, with servers becoming increasingly commoditized and less specialised.
