3 Ways to Save with Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing continues to get a lot of press and discussion. Yet, the question many business owners want to know is: "Can it really save me money?" In many cases, it can save you money in addition to reducing IT hassles. Here are 3 ways we have seen companies save money:

1) Reduced Upfront Costs for Hardware  
With cloud computing, the service provider sets up and maintains the hardware, so your company does not have to. For example, rather than setting up a server to use Exchange just for your company, you get access to the Exchange server of the service provider. Therefore, you do not need to invest the $4000 for the initial hardware required.

2) Lowered the Cost of Management
When you no longer have servers in-house, you dramatically reduce the amount of time needed for IT support (server maintenance, software patches, etc.). This makes it more cost effective to use an IT services provider rather than in-house support. You get the same coverage (or sometimes more coverage) for end-users at a lower total cost.

3) No Need to Upgrade in 3-5 Years  
In addition to avoiding upfront costs of hardware, using a cloud solution eliminates the need for companies to upgrade the hardware and software for an application. It is all included in the monthly user or access fee.    While cloud computing does not save money in every instance, it can for many different situations.
