Cloud Costs Could Undermine Your Efforts

Cloud Costs Could Undermine Your Efforts

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues around us, many businesses have found themselves seriously reconsidering their business’ infrastructure, pondering the switch from onsite hardware to cloud-based options. While these hosted options can offer businesses relief from a costly hardware refresh, it is important to acknowledge that cloud computing may not be a one-size-fits-all panacea. Let’s take a closer look.

The Benefits of Cloud Computing Are Apparent

Even compared to its early iterations, cloud computing has proven to be a secure and reliable way for businesses to get the resources they need for their operations. Therefore, with the increased demand for mobile and remote workers, the idea of a cost-effective solution that gives businesses the scalability and accessibility they need is really appealing. The thought that the cloud doesn’t come with a large investment up front isn’t discouraging, either.

Furthermore, as a cloud system is managed by the provider, the business that enlists these services is freed of that responsibility. All in all, this contributes to some very real value being available to companies that use the cloud for their assorted business needs.

Is the Cloud Always the Best Method?

Despite all these benefits, there is one very considerable issue that can mean that the cloud isn’t right for a business: its cost.

Yes, cost. While cloud solutions are very cost effective, that doesn’t mean that investing in these solutions would ultimately cost your business less—quite the opposite.

By their nature, cloud solutions aren’t delivered at a flat rate. While certain as-a-Service offerings are billed by month and cloud storage has grown to be more and more affordable, other costs soon come into play. Once you begin to customize your use of the cloud, its costs really start to take off.

Yes, the cloud is a cost-effective solution, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t costly. 415 IT is here to help you balance your needs to your budget while getting you the best solution for your situation… cloud-based or not. To learn more, give our team a call at (415) 295-4898.
