savings in the cloud

Where is the real cost savings in cloud computing?

Cloud computing is turning out to be a great financial saver for SMBs (small and medium-sized businesses) and SOHO (small office/home office users) which would like to enjoy higher computational speeds and efficiency for less money and energy. As a result, an increasing number of organizations are moving their businesses to cloud for increased accessibility, availability and scalability; all at lower costs. Further information available at AWS Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Calculator.

Real Cost Savings in Cloud Computing

No Upfront Investments – Moving to cloud is cheaper than you think. It involves no upfront investments as all the IT infrastructure needs will be taken care by the cloud service provider for a fixed cost. When you run your own servers, the overall costs of maintenance and management can go up leading to unwanted and unplanned expenditures. But, in the world of cloud everything you need can be availed just like utility services for nominal costs.

Fully Hardware UtilizationCloud computing results in economies of scale. It ensures fully utilization of hardware resources depending upon the business workloads. In the cloud model, your workloads will share server infrastructure will other organization’s computing needs which makes cloud provider to optimize the hardware needs of its data centers resulting in higher efficiencies for your business.

Low Power Costs – Cloud consumes less power and is more efficient than having an in-house IT set up. Better hardware utilization results in more efficient use of power. In case, you run your own data center, your servers may not be utilized fully and that may unfortunately add up to the bottom line. Whereas, cloud ensures complete hardware utilization charging you less for the systems used.

Reduced Workforce – With cloud, you no longer have to worry about recruiting expensive human resources for your computing needs. Over the top costs such as salaries, benefits and other employment costs can be avoided using cloud computing services as you pay less for provider’s staffing needs. However, you can deploy your IT staff to other areas of business such as applications development, which has maximum potentials for cost savings in cloud computing.

Redundancy – When you run your own servers, you need to buy more hardware just in case of system failure or crash. Buying extra hardware can add up to your overall costs as they need maintenance when idle. Instead, moving to cloud is an inexpensive way to deal with redundancy requirements. Typical clouds reside in several data centers and replicate your data for resiliency. So, your business would be up and running in no time should there arise any problem such as system failure or disasters like fire and flood.

innovative capabilities of cloud

Innovative Capabilities of Cloud Computing

Innovative Capabilities of Cloud Computing originate from a ready-made global compute and storage infrastructure platform with a do-it-yourself (DIY) approach to distributed applications and services. The cloud computing platform is ready-made in the fact that cloud service providers (CSP) have invested billions of dollars into their cloud infrastructure to be rented by small business. Further information available at Innovative Capabilities of Cloud Computing. This is very convenient for small business as they may only need cloud services for a short period of time or who don’t know to exactly what scale they need cloud services. Also, the ability to immediately provision cloud services is a significant advantage if timing is a factor.

The true value of global computing for small business is not in owning infrastructure, but in the consumption of valuable digital services desired by the small business customers. In most cases, small businesses don’t own a global computing infrastructure to deliver their digital services. The economic benefits of renting cloud computing platform are evident. Further, to generate innovative capabilities of cloud computing, small businesses with a deep understanding of their market innovations customize their global digital services to their customer’s unique needs. Innovation is about doing something in a way that creates greater value than in the past. This do-it-yourself (DIY) approach to using cloud computing platforms empowers small businesses to develop market innovations charting new solutions to business customer challenges, processes, services, and solutions.

Cloud Computing Technologies delivers value to our clients by the leverage the innovative capabilities of cloud computing through fusion of business process redesign and technology innovation.

cloud adoption expense

Is Cloud Adoption Expensive?

Today, many companies have realized the essence of cloud computing in their day-to-day business operations. Cloud computing has accelerated the innovation like never before providing businesses with the much need availability, accessibility and scalability. Still, a size-able chunk of companies are in a state of indecision thinking cloud adoption is expensive. Nevertheless, this blog will answer all such doubts looming large over start-ups and mid-sized businesses. Further information available at Is Cloud Adoption Expensive.

Cloud computing services are often referred to as hosted services which aim to provide computing resources in a virtualized environment. As a result, cloud services offer great flexibility and scalability for businesses to scale up and down depending upon the market needs. It enables businesses to consume computing resources as a utility rather than building and maintaining the infrastructure. Thus refuting the premise, cloud adoption expensive.

Depending upon the volume and size of your business you may choose any of the following cloud service models:
1. Public Cloud
2. Private Cloud
3. Hybrid Cloud

Public Cloud

In the public cloud model, cloud services are hosted over the internet by third party providers. So, depending upon your business needs you can avail cloud services through monthly, quarterly, half-yearly and annual subscriptions. In this type of cloud model, you pay only for the CPU cycles, storage or bandwidth consumed. Popular public cloud providers for businesses include Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Compute Engine.

Private Cloud

In this type of cloud model, cloud services are delivered from a business data center to internal users. Private cloud services differ from public cloud services by the way it offers supreme control over the infrastructure in addition to security and management. Further, private cloud services could exactly fit and evolve with your business model.

Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid cloud combines both public and private cloud to form the synergistic combination needed to address your business infrastructure needs. You can run business critical operations or sensitive applications on the private cloud while using the public cloud for catering to bulk business needs. Thus, hybrid cloud provides a unified scalable environment. So, going by these cloud models, one can say cloud adoption for business is simple, cost-effective and reliable as you pay only for what you use. Thus, one may not conclude cloud adoption expensive.
