Similarly, cloud solutions reduce hardware requirements and associated costs. When you run all your infrastructure in-house, you will likely spend money on unnecessary hardware.
It’s not only the initial set-up costs that need to be considered, but also the ongoing costs associated with the maintenance of the hardware, security upgrades, and repairs when things go wrong.
It’s important not to underestimate these costs, particularly as the organization grows. Operations can quickly exceed current hardware capacity, resulting in expensive and unanticipated infrastructure projects.
When you migrate to the cloud, you benefit from your cloud service provider’s extensive hardware capabilities without needing to consider upgrades, maintenance, or repairs.
