Calculate the Total Cost of Operations of a cloud solution

A realistic view of IT costs

As IT consumption continues to transform, and increasing numbers head to the cloud, the way in which we deal with the cost of IT must also change. The future is all about capabilities, value and utilisation, and if you're not experienced with cloud technology, your costs can easily spiral out of control.

Get a clear picture of what you'll be spending in the cloud and look beyond your initial infrastructure investment by calculating your Total Cost of Operations (TCO). Learn how in this useful guide.

Transitioning to cloud computing allows IT to refocus its efforts on delivering what the business really values. With this increase in agility, however, there is also a decrease in certainty over costs and that can be challenging for organisations to deal with. Those that learn to deal with uncertainty and change effectively will do better than those that try to eliminate uncertainty through adopting a rigid strategy.

It's like an iceberg, most of it is under water

When you add together all your cloud costs, the overall amount can come as a surprise and might be much more than you expected. If you want a realistic view of how much it will cost to run your platform and migrate effectively, it can be helpful the think about an iceberg: you can only see 10% of it and the rest is hidden under water. Look beneath the surface in this guide.

Switching things off when you're not using them

Pay-per-use can be a real quick win and simply involves switching things off when you're not using them. Within a typical production environment, you don't need all your instances running all the time so you can achieve significant cost savings by monitoring what you need and when. Learn more about the different cost models which are available to you.
