Managing Cost in the Cloud

Leveraging cloud computing, specifically Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), has the potential to substantially lower an organization’s infrastructure costs. However, the majority of the benefits are only realized if the cloud is used properly and for the right purposes. Cloud computing is a broad concept that’s evolving quickly. Download this whitepaper to learn which type of cloud is right for your workload and application needs.

Due to the emergence of cloud computing, IT departments will drastically evolve over the next five years to better serve the organization. As the true cost of IT infrastructure and management becomes more visible, IT and the business units within the organization will work together to make better decisions about infrastructure resources and spending. Organizations can now forecast future spending and avoid unnecessary spending in the cloud using tools such as Bluelock Portfolio™ to access real-time information about infrastructure costs. These tools, combined with self-service technologies like VMware vCloud® Director, will enable this important shift in IT cost management.

What are cloud costs?

Cloud costs include all costs associated with IT infrastructure and management in the cloud. In the cloud, organizations pay only for what is needed, which can result in savings or excess resources that can be used for additional projects.

What is enterprise cloud?

Enterprise cloud computing includes both public and private cloud infrastructure used by enterprise organizations. Enterprise cloud is delivered on-demand to avoid upfront capital expenses and support security and compliance requirements.
