There are but a few reasons for staying with on-premises hosting. We at Nordcloud are naturally promoting the public cloud. The public cloud providers define new IT standards and innovate at a speed and quality that is unmatched. The public cloud is the answer to most of the IT challenges we all grew so painfully used to during the last 10 years. However, since we are not just dealing with digital-native companies in the media, gaming and Web industry but also very traditional and several hundred years old enterprises, we know very well that the on-premise world exists for a reason. And no matter how much we would love to get all of our customers workloads to where they would be best hosted, we understand that sometimes the answer has to be: no. In this blog post, we want to discuss some use cases that we have seen over and over and that were stopping companies from moving their workloads to the cloud.
