Phone Systems in the Cloud vs. On-Premises vs. Hybrid Deployments

Phone systems have traditionally been deployed on-site, but the lure of the Cloud is strong. Many multi-site businesses are now using a hybrid combination of both… deploying an on-premises system at headquarters and Cloud solutions for the branch offices – all interconnected and centrally managed in a hybrid arrangement.

There are many reasons why On-Premises phone systems remain popular…

  • The need to control technology in-house.
  • The need for customized features, integration with other applications, or advanced call center capabilities.
  • The need for uninterrupted communications or compliance with strict regulatory requirements.
  • The need to depreciate equipment costs over time.

The Cloud can be a good fit for small to mid-sized businesses or a larger enterprise with smaller, remote offices…

  • Eliminates need for upfront investment. Costs become operational expenses and are more predictable.
  • No need for in-house staff to purchase, configure and manage your system, servers and storage.
  • Maintenance and support are simplified and upgrades are automatic.
  • Whether your business is growing or needs to scale down in a pinch, a cloud service can easily adapt.
