Azure Cloud Series: Reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
The decision to take the leap into serverless cloud computing like Microsoft Azure for your business is not one to be taken lightly. However, the total cost of ownership (tco) decrease offers plenty of reasons for you to finally convert to cloud computing, millions of reasons, in fact. By migrating to Microsoft Azure, your company can take advantage of immediate savings in hardware and datacenter costs and benefit from optimized IT management and access to first-class, single-vendor support.
For example, a customer running 500 Windows VMs on VMware vSphere on-premises, total cost of ownership could be over $5.5 million over a three-year period. Migrating to Azure, or building new deployments in Azure, enables you to take advantage of offers like Azure Reserved Virtual Machine Instances and Hybrid Benefit. If this same VMware customer used Azure Hybrid Benefit for Windows Server and Azure Reserved Virtual Machine instances, the company could save up to 84 percent over the total cost of running on-premises.
This TCO reduction applies to all systems you want to move to the Microsoft Azure cloud. For instance, moving your Epicor ERP system to the cloud requires no capital expenditures because no equipment needs to be purchased. This helps minimize the long-term investment for a new project and upfront capital outlay required to get new infrastructure in place. Operating expenses also will decrease since you will be moving internal resources used to manage your on-premises system to another area of your business. This doesn’t even factor in the decreased indirect cost associated with it.
Microsoft Azure provides a hassle-free approach to moving virtual machines to Azure, enabling you to enjoy significant TCO benefits. Enjoy economies of scale, use tools to optimize resource utilization, and take advantage of flexible compute options in Azure. 2W Tech can guide you throughout your deployment of the Azure cloud no matter your current setup.
