Cloud computing saves money, right?
Moving some IT services to the Cloud can significantly lower costs. This is undoubtedly true, in some circumstances. There are however, a number of variables that can affect the size of any savings and the suitability of the cloud as an appropriate platform. Taken together, these variables will determine whether or not the cloud represents a good option both financially and operationally.
We have a model that walks through this checklist and helps you decide on the basis of unambiguous facts whether and how the cloud fits into your existing infrastructure strategy. The model provides a clear picture of the cost differential and all the points that need to be addressed whether you are considering a handful of devices or entire data centres.
