Benefits of Optimizing Your IT Infrastructure

!

INCREASE YOUR REVENUE

An optimized IT infrastructure allows your technology to work more efficiently. Migrating your IT infrastructure to the cloud results in better data management, streamlined processes, and increased security. For small businesses, this is a great opportunity to cut costs.

!

INCREASE YOUR FLEXIBILITY

One of the main problems with traditional on-premise infrastructure is that it makes it difficult to scale your business. Since cloud services are very flexible, you can scale your business without any hassle. There’s also the added bonus of being able to access your data from anywhere at any time.

!

INCREASE YOUR PRODUCTIVITY

Businesses that invest in technologies to optimize their IT infrastructure often experience productivity gains. A robust IT architecture plays a major role in connecting departments and streamlining processes, which are important steps to help stakeholders get a big picture of the operation, foster agility, and work towards best practices. It also frees up existing IT resources by automating routine processes.

!

INCREASE YOUR SECURITY

Do you deal with sensitive data? Optimizing your IT infrastructure will allow you to put the right measures in place to ensure your data is always secured. Setting up a virtual private network (VPN), for example, can be an effective weapon against security threats.

"

REDUCE DOWNTIME

Downtime and outages can not only put your IT infrastructure at risk but can compromise your business’ operations. On-premise infrastructure can do more harm than good to your productivity and overall profitability. Migrating to a cloud IT infrastructure can ultimately lower maintenance costs, reduce downtime, and improve system reliability.

Provide increased flexibility, efficiency, and economies of scale by migrating your servers, storage, databases, software, and analytics to the cloud.

The Three Clouds

PUBLIC

Public Clouds are owned and operated by third-party cloud service providers, which deliver their computing resources like servers and storage over the Internet. With a public cloud, all hardware, software, and other supporting infrastructure is owned and managed by the cloud provider. You access these services and manage your account using a web browse.

PRIVATE

Private Clouds refers to cloud computing resources used exclusively by a single business or organization. A private cloud can be physically located on the company’s on-site datacenter. Many companies also pay third-party service providers to host their private cloud. A private cloud is one in which the services and infrastructure are maintained on a private network.

HYBRID

Hybrid Clouds combine public + private clouds, bound together by technology that allows data and apps to be shared between the two. By allowing data to move between private and public clouds, a hybrid cloud gives your business greater flexibility, more deployment options, and helps optimize your existing infrastructure, security, and compliance.

Why Migrate Now?

At first glance, migration may seem like a technical decision but, in reality, it is a business decision. 

Ultimately, it begs a fundamental question: What's Driving Your Business to Migrate to the Cloud, and Why Now?
  • Operational efficiencies and reduction of operating expenses. Due to the reduction in hardware support, increased manageability, and efficiency of process, you can save an average of 20 to 30% on virtual machine (VM) resource configuration alone.
  • Decreased time to market/release. By reducing management overhead and freeing up budget, you can focus more time and effort on rapid software and solution development. Faster deployment of infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) will enable your business to release faster and more often.
  • Support for scalability requirements that are more cost effective. When you have to plan for peak usage through on-premises systems, most of the time you’re left with servers that are running at less than 20% utilization. The cloud releases organizations from this model, enabling a scale-when-you-need-it approach.
  • Renewal of datacenter or hardware leasing. If you’re currently extending your budget on renewing hardware or paying for datacenter locations for hosting, this is the perfect time to look towards cloud migration. The cloud can make these necessities a thing of the past by enabling a cloud vendor to host these services for you.
  • Renewal of licensing. Nearly everyone has an annual licensing agreement with their major IT providers. These too require ample budget to ensure your virtualization and OS platform are sufficiently covered. The cloud can help you here, providing a pay-as-you-go offering to reduce this cost.
  • Application development and modernization. The use of on-premises platforms is likely not enabling your business to adopt modern services. The cloud provides an integrated platform for modern development, where development teams can increase speed by up to 33%.

Business Advantages of Cloud Computing

COST

While the initial price tag that comes with cloud migration can be daunting, there are long-term savings associated with migrating to the cloud. Cloud computing eliminates the expense of purchasing hardware and software, paying for set-up, electricity, and the IT specialists that are needed for handling the infrastructure. Over time, these savings add up.
