Should Your Web CMS Be On-Premises or in The Cloud


Published on

Once you’ve selected a Web CMS, you’ll need to determine whether to run it on-premises or in the cloud.

For an on-premises deployment model, your Web CMS runs on infrastructure that you provide or manage. The infrastructure may reside in a server room in your office, or be provided by a hosting company.

For a cloud deployment model, your Web CMS runs on cloud infrastructure that's fully managed by your Web CMS vendor or by a cloud provider.

This infographic helps you decide which deployment model makes sense for your organization.

Should Your Web CMS Be On-Premises or in The Cloud

  1. 1. CLOUD ON-PREMISES Where to Run Your Web CMS: ON-PREMISES OR CLOUD? Hardware Software Your Web CMS will run on one or more servers. As traffic to your site grows, you’ll need to add more. You’ll need to install and manage web server and database server software. In addition, you’ll need to install security patches for the operating system running on your servers. Backups Upgrades You’ll need backup server hardware and software to take backups of your files and databases. You’ll need to apply regular upgrades to your web server, database server and Web CMS software. Network Bandwidth Performance Testing You’ll need to purchase and manage network bandwidth from an Internet Service Provider (ISP). You’ll need to run routine performance tests to ensure your website is providing acceptable response times. Testing/Staging Environment Network Hardware You’ll need to manage a testing environment in parallel to your production environment: more hardware, more software. You’ll need to install and manage routers, switches, load balancers and firewalls. Server/Network Security Infrastructure Personnel You’ll need to provide 24x7 security monitoring to ensure your systems and software are not compromised by an outside attack. You’ll need Full-Time Equivalents (FTE) on your team to manage and troubleshoot hardware in your server room or data center.
