Looking to move to the public cloud? It is hard to say who the public cloud is best for because it all depends on the situation. Construction plays a big role in how best you make use of the public cloud.
You'll want to answer the questions below before creating your own instance on public cloud...
To what extent are you being hurt by not meeting the needs of cloud today?
Opportunity Costs of Cloud
If you run your own data center and the systems that are in it, you don’t always think of all the costs involved. In addition to the servers and storage, there are costs around networking gear, cooling systems and the overhead to run it, and the overall structure of the data center.
Where do you want to position your focus as a company?
- If you have a large enough team, it may make sense to run your application in-house.
- If you have a team really focused on running an application set and knowing what makes it tick, the application may work best in the cloud.
It becomes a question of modernization. The biggest adoption of cloud is with new applications. Organizations are writing code specifically knowing that the application is going to be built for the cloud.
Additional Hidden Costs of Cloud
Will you make the best use of the public cloud you plan on adopting?
When looking at the architecture of the application, you have to ask yourself if it makes sense to run something in a completely different way than anything you’ve ever done before.
Cloud isn’t always cheaper but sometimes it makes the most sense to outsource it.
IaaS is more expensive than running your own infrastructure but the main question is - Are you in the business of running your own infrastructure? Most likely not.
