This whitepaper gives a short overview of Cloud Computing. We highlight the common challenges when transitioning to Cloud Computing, and show how Ergonomics can support you in different scenarios and options of outsourcing traditional in-house IT services to the cloud.
Cloud Computing providers create services that maximize convenience for their customer with the aim that their customers consume the provider’s pool of resources efficiently. The feature sets and price list of Cloud Computing providers look very different compared to that of co-location providers or IT departments. The much touted cost-savings stem from the shift of in-house operations to the provider for services where the provider enjoys economy of scale. Naïve transitions to Cloud Computing often increase overall costs due to customer requirements not matching the different economy of scale factors of a provider’s services.
