Going to the Cloud – Get it right first time – Part 4 of 4

Going to the Cloud – Get it right first time – Part 4 of 4

Don’t think that the Cloud will be cheaper. It’s not about cheaper.

There are 6 options shown below.

Options 1 & 2 which are physical server where the customer would either purchase via a Chattel Mortgage or do a Rental and they are best to be considered over a 3 Year Term with Monthly Payments.

1. On Premise Solution  
If we do a replacement server on premise we would also put a UPS (uninterruptable power supply) with Extended Battery Support, services to install etc.  
Cost per month for this option over 3 years =  $1,022 with $0 to pay at the end of 3 years. =
Full ownership. Years 4 and 5 = $0

2. Co – Location
If we put your server into our racks in a Data Centre (DC) then the Power issues are handled. We still build the server and install in DC.  
This option would also include the 5TB Comms (out and inbound) component in the price per month.  
Cost per month for this option over 3 years (as the kit is still being leased) = $2,242 with $0 to pay at the end of 3 years.
Full ownership of hardware but fees for rack space and communications would continue at about $1,400 per month after 3 years.

3. Bare Metal – which is a physical server rented by the month.  
This is fully managed server infrastructure.  
Comms is an extra and as per above @ 5TB (out and inbound)  
100Mbit service as this is double HO speed.  
Cost per month = $4,068 ongoing forever, costs will drop per month over the period due to competition and pay per month model.

4. Virtual Server in a Private Node rented by the month.  
Comms is an extra and as per above @ 5TB (out and inbound)  
Cost per month = $3,567 ongoing forever, costs will drop per month over the period due to competition and pay per month model.

5. Virtual Server in a Public Node rented by the month.  
Comms is an extra and as per above @ 5TB (out and inbound)  
Cost per month = $3,222 ongoing forever, costs will drop per month over the period due to competition and pay per month model.

6. Microsoft Azure – Virtual Server in a Public Node rented by the month.  
Comms is and extra and as per above @ 5TB (Outbound charged only)  
Cost per month = $2,634 ongoing forever, costs will drop per month over the period due to competition and pay per month model.
 
Note: Anything to do with connecting to the Data Centre would involve communications costs. We would need to speak with the client’s service provider for all options 3 – 6.
 
We are assuming that they have an MPLS WAN in place.
 
So, the above is a good guide on pricing.
