Summary

About a decade ago, on-premises was the only option, but nowadays, cloud software is the more popular choice – especially for SMBs. If you run on-premises software, you will need to have either an internal team of dedicated IT staff to manage the system or you will have to hire an outside firm to do so. Multi-tenant architecture tends to bring down the cost of software license fees, however, it limits your ability to customize the system. This means that the software vendor simply pays another company to manage the physical hardware and all the associated security. While the software vendor in this situation will take care of any IT maintenance, back-ups and security of the software, the IaaS company provides the physical space to store the equipment and covers the cost of protecting it with proper alarm systems, cooling systems, fire suppression, back-up generators, etc.
