For the past few years, the primary focus for much of the hosting industry has been on promoting the advantages of cloud servers. In certain scenarios, being able to rent IT resources such as processing power, bandwidth and storage on demand and to scale these up and down quickly as needed offers customers clear benefits when it comes to boosting their agility and managing  IT costs more efficiently. Yet while the cloud is great for certain applications, there are many other cases where the use of dedicated servers would be more appropriate.

In this white paper, well explore the difference between the two approaches and highlight where and how dedicated servers can not only give you better performance, reliability, control and security, but can be just as attractive as cloud (and often more so) in terms of both flexibility and cost efficiency. We also examine when its preferable to take one approach over the other, and how you can combine the two to best effect.
