Why choose cloud computing?
In a constantly changing society and business environment, it‘s essential that you’re able to focus on what you do best: providing the best possible services, creating products with the highest quality… All other aspects of your business should support your core activities, and should definitely not become an obstacle to realising your goals.
In keeping your ICT infrastructure on-premise, your infrastructure tends to become an obstacle. It’s hard to scale up or down, difficult to secure, and very tiresome to support and maintain. By moving your ICT infrastructure to the cloud, you can benefit from all the expected advantages: top security, worry-free support and maintenance, and endless scalability in both directions. It also suits today’s needs better in terms of mobility and edge computing.
Why Azure is the best cloud solution?
Of course, your cloud partner should guarantee you all of the above benefits. Very often, this means they will rely on one of the major cloud providers: Amazon, Google, or Microsoft Azure. Which one? This may seem less relevant – they are all more or less equal, right? Well, actually no. If you are already using Office 365, it will be far easier to move to a Microsoft Azure environment than to any other platform. No need to worry about integrating and interfaces, you can stick to the tools you know and love. By opting for Microsoft Azure, you ensure a smooth transition to a reliable computing environment.
The bottom line, your ultimate argument
The most common argument against cloud computing is that it ends up being a lot more expensive than on-premise. More specifically, the top cloud vendors would cost you considerably more when viewed over a longer period.
How to silence rumours? By countering them with facts. We made a detailed calculation of the cost related to hosting an infrastructure on-premise – 2 clusters of 3 nodes and 72 cores in 2 datacentres – and compared it to the cost of running this on Azure in an identical set-up.
The results were astounding. When taken over a 5-year depreciation period, choosing Azure will save you almost 750 euro per month. When viewed over a 3-year depreciation period, however (which is fairer, considering the server innovation cycles nowadays), you would gain over more than 2500 euro per month. Which results in a difference of 90,000 euro over 3 years! If you ever needed a compelling argument, here you have it! (Don’t believe us? We did the math, read our full case.)
When replacing a standard on-premise server configuration using a 3-year depreciation cycle with an identical setup in Microsoft Azure, your organisation can save 90.000 euro.
