OWNERSHIP, POSSESSION, PERFORMANCE
Powered, physically secured and cooled. The gold standard in computing is private cloud. Security can be fine-tuned with total control while providing access to cloud-based applications and services for those that really need them.
When virtualised, machines can be created “on the fly” often at little or no cost. Take, for example, a VOIP Phone System or, perhaps, a Web Server such as WordPress. There are many to choose from and they are free!
Hardware these days is both cheap and reliable, and when coupled with thin clients costs, are kept to an absolute minimum. No worldwide wait here.
