Finding Savings in Your Underutilized Servers Part 2

Earlier this week we talked about ways to shave your IT budget by combining your servers with a process called virtualization. This can equal big savings when you are running multiple single-task servers. Another way businesses can save money is by migrating their entire server infrastructure to a managed cloud environment.

Finding Server Savings in the Cloud

Servers may provide you a few terabytes of hard drive space, but how many bytes are you actually using? It is estimated that a typical server used for just a few tasks and applications, is only utilizing 5-15% of its capacity. One money-saving solution is to store your data on a cloud. Using a cloud, you are billed for how many gigabytes you actually use. This way you pay for what you are actually using, instead of paying for unused space.

Accounting will appreciate how the subscription nature of cloud computing is an operating expense, compared to the capital expense of purchasing new hardware (CAPEX vs. OPEX). This is very attractive if you are working on a budget, and looking for ways to find more revenue for capital expenditures. Switching to cloud computing is a much easier money-saving budget decision to make than, let's say...canceling the office subscription to Sports Illustrated and having a revolt on your hands.
