One of the big takeaways from the cloud computing hype over the last year is that everyone wants to do more with less. Keeping your IT infrastructure in-house no longer makes sense from a cost perspective. The cloud computing media coverage certainly has emphasized this.
One of the main advantages of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) companies, like Online Tech, is that they are enabling a wide variety of companies to run their businesses without the capital expenditures that go along with traditional IT departments. A lot of the newer Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) companies, who are more agile and under a tighter budget, are already taking advantage of these services.
The question has now changed from, “Will we outsource our data center?” to “When and how are be going to take advantage of these new cost-savings IaaS managed services?
We at Online Tech, think that the transition will further progress once these once-hesitant businesses become more and more educated about what IaaS companies can offer and how to get the most out of these new business relationships. This will only take time as they see their competitors continue to make the shift to IaaS and experience the time and cost savings.
