The benefits of moving some workloads to a public cloud service are now well recognised. What is sometimes not appreciated is that such services are very different in terms of technical specifications, security and total cost of ownership.
IDE Group has relationships with all the major public cloud service providers, as well providing our own public cloud service. Each offers different features and costs and our role is to match your workloads to the right service for the lowest possible TCO. Once placed, we provide ongoing orchestration and support of all services.
Any public cloud service
Recommendations based on need
Lowest possible TCO
IDE Group’s multi-tenant cloud hosting platform – our public cloud service – is operated from our highly connected and resilient data centres. With annual contracts, it provides customers with many of the advantages of the large public cloud providers, such as AWS and Microsoft Azure, but at a far lower TCO.
Our public cloud is highly cost-effective for relatively static workloads that customers need to be delivered over an extended period. Examples of static workloads include CRM systems or virtual desktops, as activity from day to day and minute to minute is unlikely to change significantly.
Public cloud services offered by companies such as Amazon, Microsoft and Google, offer almost unimaginably rapid and unlimited elasticity of scale. They are perfect for workloads for which demand may peak rapidly, such as web sites, as new resource can instantly be brought online. While costs incurred scale in line with utilisation, these services are expensive so careful consideration needs to be given before moving a workload to them.
