03Cost benefits of Cloud
With a traditional infrastructure involving local servers on-site, a business must forecast the capacity they will need over the next few years, and pay for most or all of it up front, tying up finances that could be better spent elsewhere. A significant amount of expensive datacentre space will need to be available for bulky hardware, which may incur building and electrical costs, and backup servers must reside in a different location. There will also be ongoing costs for the lifetime of the solution, including maintenance and night-time emergency cover.
With our Cloud services, there are no on-site costs. Capacity is flexible, so does not need to be estimated at the start. Usage costs are on a ‘pay as you go’ basis, so are spread over the lifetime of the solution, allowing businesses to scale safely and cost-effectively at low risk. In addition, our customers benefit from economies of scale, as our Cloud runs on a high volume, low margin basis and can pass significant savings on to their customers.
