How Cloud Computing can Reduce Your OPEX
Is far too much of your IT budget spent on maintaining your existing infrastructure? Are you worried that you're not utilising your resources to the best of their ability? Moving over to the cloud via VMware vSphere would not only help reduce your annual IT overheads, but also increase the efficiency of your infrastructure, allowing you to manage the technical challenges your business faces in a much more automated way while also freeing up much needed capital that could be put to better use.
Cloud computing with VMware represents an opportunity for your company to deliver the types of services that your staff have become accustomed to, plus a whole lot more. with VMware on the cloud, you can work from anywhere with an internet connection, and receive the same services that you get at work, perfect for the type of company that wants to give their staff the ability to work from home more.
Make more of your existing resources by moving the type of services that usually came from your server room onto the cloud; this typically means your IT staff are less overworked, your IT budget decreases sometimes by as much as 50%, allowing you to focus more on moving your company forward with exciting new technologies that can help bring in new revenue streams and further simplify operations, rather than spending significant amounts of time and money maintaining an infrastructure that's wasteful and time consuming.
There are three major advantages of cloud computing with VMware:
- Fuel business expansion by delivering new services.
- Turn your IT services from an expensive but necessary strain on your business to a platform for innovation.
- Increase both the reliability and efficiency of your IT department by making their role easier and more automated.
