Abstract: Equipping Malaysia's $3 billion markets worth medium size enterprise with an optimise information technology infrastructure is a major challenge during the volatile business environment. This paper advances beyond traditional cloud-based infrastructure which relies heavily on internet service provider while our solution focuses on LAN based virtual grid to provide reliable services. Our pessimistic discussion into legacy Harvard University theories on the commodity of infrastructure and technology disruptor reveals the need for an updated strategic viewpoints on the possible consolidation available yet hidden infrastructure features while sustaining the economic uncertainty. The research is supported using a test-retest data of 100 samples and 122 sample from the Peninsular Malaysia. The compiled information using Spearman correlation gave alarming contribution from the unproductive 29% investment into building a much needed dynamic infrastructure to storm thru the economic turbulence, yet boost competitive difference when market bull run. Our client-server grid solution reshapes workload into the existing and available desktop to form a virtual centralised server that can grow or shrink with the business size. The revised exostructure as a service framework concludes the importance to revisit back local infrastructure disruptor.
