Part 1 – On premises vs. cloud computing – Cost savings
Cloud computing is a service based on virtual servers, from which normal business applications can be run. Virtual servers are an alternative to traditional on-premises or data centre servers. These servers offer the same storage, security and networking facilities.
Cloud computing is rapidly being adopted by organisations of all sizes, as part of the shift away from hardware, towards virtual services. In this three-part blog series, we will explore the key benefits to a business when considering migration to cloud computing.
Part 1 – Cost savings
The move away from traditional servers removes the need for a business to own and maintain expensive hardware and the associated costs of doing so. Cloud computing transforms the business infrastructure into a service, which is managed by the cloud provider. Users are able to manage their applications in the usual way, without concern for the provision of resources to support them.
Management of the business infrastructure includes set-up, monitoring and trouble-shooting, therefore avoiding the need for costly IT engineers. The tasks associated with on-premises servers, such as ‘racking & stacking’, software patching and hardware set-up, will no longer fall to the business IT team. This can free up their time to focus on core business issues. Another significant cost benefit is that cloud computing services can be purchased on a pay for use basis, rather like we pay for traditional utilities such as gas and electricity. There are obvious advantages of this approach for a growing, changing business.
