THE COST OF DOING IT WRONG: 6 KEY COST CONSIDERATIONS WHEN EVALUATING A CLOUD SERVICE.
Organisations are moving many of their IT operations to the Cloud to realise cost efficiencies and gain a level of flexibility that is needed in today’s fast-changing business world.
The wide-scale adoption and rapid move to the Cloud is being met by a similarly explosive growth in the number of providers offering services. Unfortunately, not all cloud services are created equal. The wrong choice – going with a commodity cloud provider for critical workloads, for example – can have significant consequences and could lead to a loss of revenue, productivity, reputation, and customers. A wrong choice can also increase IT costs and in some cases, result in regulatory and civil penalties and fines.
This white paper will examine six key cost considerations when evaluating cloud services and provide recommendations for selecting a suitable provider.
