9 Advantages to Communications: On-Premise, Hybrid, Cloud

Each unified communications deployment model has its strengths. This infographic provides a high-level overview of the key benefits for each type of UC solution: On-Premise, Cloud or Hybrid.


9 Advantages for Communications Deployments: On-Premise, Hybrid, Cloud


The advantages of an on-premise unified communications solution include complete control over the system and its security as well as a rich feature set. While an on-premise solution requires a higher upfront investment (CAPEX), the investment in the system pays off over time, leaving your business with total ownership over the infrastructure.


A hosted cloud-based unified communications comes with the provider’s infrastructure, including built-in disaster recovery and business continuity capabilities. A cloud solution is a pay-as-you-go model (OPEX), typically a monthly subscription fee based on the number of users. With a cloud solution, a business can avoid vendor lock-in, moving to another solution if the provider fails to meet your requirements.


A hybrid communications solution allows you to maximize your investment in existing on-premise infrastructure. Simply add new unified communication features via the cloud, integrating them with the current on-premise system. A hybrid solution provides the flexibility to run unified communication solutions where they best fit for your business: on-premise or in the cloud.
