Cloud Vs On Premise

The decision on where to place data and services if often a difficult but critical one for SMEs. We often hear businesses saying they ‘feel behind’ when not adopting cloud practice across their organisation. It’s actually very simple – Cloud is the principle of hosting/storing data or services outside of your organisation’s premises, whereas On-Premise is the principle of hosting/storing within your own premise (such as a Server). Both have their uses, advantages and disadvantages. We’ll sit down with you, get a fuller understanding of how your business is structured, how your team work and also where you are going in the next 1, 3 and 5 years. We’ll then be able to propose a Cloud, On-Premise or most commonly, Hybrid solution that supports your organisation.

What our clients say

At Scot JCB we pride ourselves in being experts at our job, namely selling and servicing construction and agricultural equipment. When it comes to IT matters, however, we’re not experts, nor do we need to be. Even with 150 PCs and laptops, we can’t justify an in-house IT specialist to solve our computer problems, so we use pcr and get access to a whole team of specialists.

Whether it’s a faulty pc or printer, a problem in our extensive wired and wireless network, or setting up new devices at one of our depots, Nick and his team give us an efficient and cost effective service. We find their expertise invaluable as they can quickly and efficiently diagnose and resolve problems, leaving us to get on with our own business.
