Bob Stegner, Senior Vice President, Marketing, North America, SYNNEX Corporation, shares when to your customers should consider keeping their servers onsite and how to present options that will scale with your customer’s future needs.

  1. Security. Either due to regulations or due to wanting to have the confidence that their information is safe, having the server on site ensures customers have complete control over who has access to their data and the security protocols in place to protect it.
  2. Performance. Ultimately, anything in the cloud may have challenges related to how fast it can be accessed.  For top performance (specifically, I/O throughput), on-site servers can often be the best option.
