In Modern Infrastructure strategy there are 2 basic models to consider. Keep in mind choosing the best for the business is the right strategic decision.
Model 1-Traditional onsite of co-located data center facility. This houses your network, storage and compute technologies. You purchase and manage the equipment and your entire network/compute environment yourself.
Model 2-Newer Cloud or SAS model. In this model all the network, comput, storage lives in the cloud or at a service provider’s datacenter. It’s model 1 but your paying someone to host and maintain the environment for you.
Compare and contrast the 2. What is the right strategy fr a smaller start up firm? What about a larger more established firm. Support your arguments and create a strength and weakness argument for each small vs larger firm. Remember concerns like cost, scale, security etc-as discussed in class.
