On-Premises (on-prem)

Network On-Premises (on-prem) refers to the local area network (LAN) infrastructure and resources that are physically located within an organization's premises or data center. In the context of cloud storage, the network on-premises encompasses the networking equipment, servers, storage devices, and other IT infrastructure that are used to facilitate data storage, access, and communication within the organization's own physical location.

Organizations typically use their on-premises network infrastructure to store and manage sensitive or critical data locally, as well as to facilitate communication and collaboration among employees, devices, and applications within the organization. This includes accessing and transferring data between on-premises storage devices and other network resources, such as servers, workstations, and printers.

While cloud storage offers scalability, flexibility, and accessibility advantages, some organizations may opt to maintain certain data and resources on-premises due to regulatory compliance requirements, data sovereignty concerns, security considerations, or performance requirements.

Overall, the network on-premises serves as the foundation for organizations to manage and control their local data storage and network operations, while also integrating and leveraging cloud storage solutions to meet their evolving storage needs and business requirements.
