Your Managed Cloud Service Provider
You might wonder why Redcorp, a 30-year-old company with the mission to make Buying IT made simple offers you cloud computing solutions. It is exactly because buying IT cannot be simpler than that!
Everyone knows that moving to the cloud is a buzzword on all scales of businesses ranging from small web shops to global enterprises. Moving to the cloud means to run the same work that is running in your server room in a more optimized state at a Cloud provider's data center. In this white paper, let's discuss if it is just a fad or a real game changer for your business.
Should you spend more on CapEx or OpEx?
This is a basic decision that you would have to take in your IT strategy. Running your servers in your own server room is a capital expenditure while using servers on the cloud is an operational expenditure. Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud are such cloud service providers that Redcorp could help you to implement.
|Running your own server room (CapEx)||Using a Cloud service provider (OpEx)|
|Need to spend capital into purchasing computer equipment which would get depreciated in few years. Sometimes purchased hardware gets outdated/ outgrown even before they pay for themselves.||State of the art equipment maintained by Microsoft, Amazon and Google. As you don't own the equipment, you only pay for usage.|
|Need to purchase equipment thinking about the future growth but pay for it now.||Pay as you go model.|
|Not able to scale up/down your computing equipment based on temporary requirements such as a holiday season where your sales increase for a short span.||Can increase/decrease your cloud computers with a click of a button. It can be even configured to scale up/down automatically based on the workload.|
|Need to spend money on redundant power supply, internet lines, cooling, security, office space for server room, support & software licensing costs etc.||Natively supported by cloud for fraction of cost. You can even have a geographically dispersed disaster recovery plan on cloud which would ensure business continuity even in worse case scenarios.|
|Implementing high availability, disaster recovery & a proper backup solution to your in-house servers is going to be costly.||Natively supported by cloud for fraction of cost. You can even have a geographically dispersed disaster recovery plan on cloud which would ensure business continuity even in worse case scenarios.|
|Having onsite or contracted IT staff is expensive.||Cloud comes with free basic support. REDCORP as a Managed Cloud Service Provider ensures that you get end to end technical support you need to handle every business requirement.|
Lower Total Cost of Operation (TCO)
Think of the nuances of maintaining your own server room. You need to ensure that utility services such as power, cooling & internet are reliable, you need to ensure that broken equipment are fixed as soon as possible, and the list goes on.
When you accumulate the Total Cost of Operation of even having a single small sized server on-premises compared to running the same on the cloud, cloud is much cheaper & more reliable. The savings increase by multi-folds when the number of servers increase unless you already invested heavily on your own private data center.
Redcorp can help you to compare your current TCO vs the cost of running the same configuration in the cloud. Redcorp goes a step beyond to partner with you to ensure that your Cloud bill doesn't go out of control with our additional support on cost-optimizations and implementing best practices.** All-inclusive TCO calculation of a 1 server in EU done using Azure TCO tool.

Lead time changes from days to minutes.
In this rapidly changing world, time equals money. Ordering a server and setting it up at your office takes time. Fixing a broken server at your office still takes few days of time. Meanwhile you might be losing productivity or even worse you might be losing potential business.
With cloud, setting up hundreds of virtual servers would be a matter of few hours or less. That is One reason why cloud computing services market is steadily growing YoY globally. Kodak, Blackberry & Nokia are good examples of companies which were slow to respond to evolving technology & lost their market share.
