        • Facility costs
        • Backup and Redundancy costs
      • Personnel $$$

        • Database administrators
        • Management costs
      • Ongoing Maintenance and Upgrade $$$
    • Outsourcing is not only extremely cost effective, but leverages a provider’s economies of scale to provide safety and availability that would require tens of thousands of dollars per year to do yourself.
    • No Brain Damage!!

      • Image Platform

        • Web-based
      • VRA Core 4 based database (for art, architecture, and cultural images)
  • 10. Three Questions you should ask:
    • How easy is it to get my images into your system?
    • Is your system cloud-based?
    • What does it cost?
  • 11. Real-life example
    • 3,000 students (classified as “Very Small”)
    • 40,000 images
    • Average size: 4MB for a total of about 1.25 GB
  • 12. Hosting Calculator
