Migrating your data from on-premise servers to colocation and cloud technologies can be a daunting task. However, the overall financial savings can be extremely beneficial for businesses. By shifting from CapEx to OpEx, organizations can save a significant amount of money while still benefiting from the scalability and flexibility of cloud resources.
CapEx vs. OpEx
The CapEx model of data center ownership requires large upfront costs and future spending to replace equipment or expand capacity. This can lead to unanticipated expenses and unused infrastructure if the need for capacity decreases. In contrast, the OpEx model enables organizations to pay only for the space, power, and resources they need in an already built and maintained environment. The provider handles details like staffing, security, network diversity, and even special compliance standards, which would otherwise be costly for organizations to implement and maintain.
Additionally, opting for an OpEx-based colocation model allows organizations to maintain their private cloud connectivity and have immediate low-latency, high-bandwidth access to public cloud providers. This makes it easier to scale on an as-needed basis, as the infrastructure is already in place. It also means the unused infrastructure doesn’t have a negative impact on the overall ROI.
