There is no doubt – the cloud has revolutionized the way businesses operate. With increased scalability, faster deployment times, and improved IT operational efficiency, migrating to the cloud will give your organization the cutting edge it needs to stay competitive. But the real game changer is its cost-efficiency…there is, however, a catch.
Public clouds lower your upfront costs since you only pay for as much as your system requires. Additionally, they have the potential of decreasing your operating costs since you scale only as needed. Yet, when truly optimizing for cost your own custom-built infrastructure might still be the better option for large parts of your workloads: Dropbox for instance has saved an incredible $75M over two years by repatriating parts of their workloads from the public cloud back into their own facilities.
I’m sure that it doesn’t come as a big surprise that simply migrating to the cloud won’t solve all of your problems. So what should your cloud strategy be? It’s pretty simple: If hybrid clouds are the best way to optimize for cost, then you need to turn your on-premises facilities into high performing cloud native platforms.
Such a transition, however, is complex and not really easy without a well-developed plan. So if you don’t want your cloud costs to go off the rails, you need to develop a cloud strategy that combines the best of the public cloud with the best of your existing hardware right from the start. Are you thinking about migrating to the cloud in 2022 and wondering where to start? Let’s chat!
