Does an early-stage biotech company even need servers? If you listen to the way some people talk about it, on-site servers are unnecessary expenses in the modern, cloud-based world.
But while cloud services do give startup biotech firms unprecedented power to launch quickly with a small team, as your firm grows, special consideration needs to be taken when you start planning your company infrastructure.

There are many things that are best served in the cloud but for this blog we are focusing on how to help make decisions around why you may need a local versus a cloud based system. There are considerations around power, storage space, and security your firm will need to reach your growth goals.
