Is the cost of the respective variant compared to even much of the benefits of a cloud-based solution for the customers looming. As a basis for a sample calculation, I’m a typical start-up company with 10 employees. On promise installation of Microsoft server infrastructure, SAN storage, backup and VPN connection on the existing data. The employees work on current Windows PC with installed Microsoft Office. Example site an on mise installation installation costs for a conventional Microsoft Windows Server in House resolution over approximately one period of 3 years (period of depreciation) server hardware incl. Windows Server 2012 standard and Exchange Server 2010 CA 6.500,-costs for a middle-class standard SAN storage CA 3.500,-backup soft – and hardware for file and Exchange data about 5.500,-Microsoft Office business version, not Update capable. Purchase a new version within the 3 years.
Cost is calculated as follows: 10 x 350 x 2 approx. 7.000,-IT services for the support for installation, configuration and support within the 3 years. Costs are estimated costs and depend on wages or daily rates of the respective service providers. 60 PT are estimated expenses. Here in particular attention on the Exchange installation is to be. approx. 30.000,-estimated investment costs without a client PC and operating system 52.500,-for a period of 3 years.
The total cost is of course depending on facilities and existing technical knowledge in the company itself. Example installation of Office 365 solution as a basis for the Office 365 solution a technical minimum solution aspired to get a cost reduction for the service, and to provide maintenance-free as possible. Server hardware incl. Windows Server standard 2012. The server acts exclusively as a domain controller and storage between storage. Data and rights are held redundant by Office 365. CA 3.500,-backup system to internal assurance. Not necessary since 365 security is provided by Office. Here can be used on a simple tape backup. about 1.500,-Office 365 subscription Po person / month 19,-. The latest version of Office, Exchange with 25 GB disk space, share point for data storage and Lync for internal communication is included here 6.840,-IT services for the initial setup of the respective services and customization of SharePoint environment to meet the needs of the company. Estimated expenses 30 PT. Here is however to note the share point the company to reproduce offers many possibilities. The service may result in a far higher amount here quickly. approx. 15.000,-estimated investment costs without a client PC and operating system 26.840,-for a period of 3 years. The total cost is of course depending on facilities and existing technical knowledge in the company itself. Of course, a simple juxtaposition can never the real The two bills cost a complex matter as reflecting an entire IT infrastructure, however, show well the opportunities that cloud computing offers just young companies. Cost savings with simultaneous cost control and security of investment. Current technologies, mobility, high availability, security according to German standards give the cloud technology very interesting arguments on the hand that once should think through any company which wants to remain competitive. We accompany some our customers already on the way to the cloud and have may experience here already which could be interesting sometimes.
