Cloud Storage Options: The True Costs

1,406

Published on

The cloud presents organizations with a new way to deliver IT services. It can significantly lower costs, improve efficiency, and, if implemented well, provide significant competitive advantage. But cloud computing takes a number of forms: private, public hybrid and combinations of these. These options can be confusing in terms of their technical implementations as well as their economics.

This session describes the various types of clouds and major trends in the cloud market. It also looks at the economic issues to consider when making the decision on whether to go with cloud, and if you choose cloud, which path to take.

    1. 1. CLOUD STORAGE OPTIONS: THE TRUE COSTS STEVE GARONE, DAVID MERRILL, AND DON MCNICOLL JANUARY 15, 2014 1 © Hitachi Data Systems Corporation 2014. All Rights Reserved.
    2. 2. WEBTECH EDUCATIONAL SERIES CLOUD STORAGE OPTIONS: THE TRUE COSTS The cloud presents organizations with a new way to deliver IT services. It can significantly lower costs, improve efficiency, and, if implemented well, provide significant competitive advantage. But cloud computing takes a number of forms: private, public hybrid and combinations of these. These options can be confusing in terms of their technical implementations as well as their economics. This session describes the various types of clouds and major trends in the cloud market. It also looks at the economic issues to consider when making the decision on whether to go with cloud, and if you choose cloud, which path to take. Attend this webinar to learn how to: • Understand cloud variations and the technical and economic considerations associated with each. • Gain insight into the cost and other economic factors associated with implementing cloud solutions. • Become familiar with specific cloud use cases and their economic profiles.

    4. 4. WHY IS CLOUD INTERESTING?  Cloud brings greater agility and flexibility to IT -  Potential for universal access and services connectivity -  Scale up or down based on dynamically changing needs (especially where unstructured data is an issue) Choose the financial and cloud delivery models that make sense for you Flexibility of application choices Access to applications and data anywhere, anytime, and from any device Cost reduction (maybe) - Depending on delivery and financial models chosen, cloud can provide savings in some cases
    5. 5. HOW BIG IS THE CLOUD?  Lots of ways to measure the impact of cloud Public cloud services  17.4% CAGR through 2017  End-user spending on public cloud services will reach almost US$250 billion by 2017 Source: Gartner, 2013 Private cloud IT infrastructure (hardware and software) Top reasons for using a private cloud  17.6% CAGR through 2017  Improve service levels and business agility  Software will grow faster than hardware  Quicker implementation of new services and business processes  Spending will grow to US$22.2 billion by 2017 Source: IDC, 2013  Reduce IT staff count Source: IDC, 2012
    6. 6. THE CLOUD DEFINED  Three models dominate the cloud market    Private cloud: Implemented totally within the enterprise firewall and under complete control of the IT department Public cloud: Implemented typically by service providers making resources available to enterprises and the general public via the Internet Hybrid cloud: Combines private and public models; workloads reside on either or both and can easily interoperate

    9. 9. WHY CLOUD ECONOMICS IS IMPORTANT  Cloud, like any other option, involves true TCO considerations    Cloud delivery models present different cost profiles      Cloud decisions can be long-term and “sticky” A real TCO evaluation involves many variables that may not be obvious up front (such as costs of data center modernization) Capex vs. opex Network access costs and data transfer costs Optional services (such as security) Costs and other economic considerations must be measured against benefits of various cloud (and non-cloud) options The cloud market is highly competitive   Requires a careful look at exactly what you are getting (are low published prices real?) Need to understand total costs given your exact needs

    11. 11. KEY PRINCIPLES OF I.T. ECONOMICS  It is becoming essential to apply economic and financial principles to IT ‒ Architectures, roadmaps, standards ‒ Operational excellence ‒ Consumption behaviors  Use TCO to measure and compare Identify Measure Reduce  Four key principles of storage and IT economics 1. Price does not equal cost – price is about 20% of TCO Measure Again 2. Thirty-four different types of cost – where is your sensitivity 3. There are economically superior IT architectures 4. Econometrics – “You cannot improve what you cannot measure”  Cloud economics requires an awareness of hard and soft costs
    12. 12. DO CLOUDS REDUCE UNIT COSTS?  We need to first understand current unit costs before we start to compare to cloud offerings Much more to consider than just the price (as it will be lower)  Cloud may introduce new costs Risk Performance, latency Additional circuits Onboarding, migration, lifecycle costs Penalties Vendor management  Measure these costs over a multi-year horizon, then calculate the PV cost to determine if is really lower  Make sure that you are reducing costs, not just shifting costs  Don’t get seduced by very low-cost cloud pricing
    13. 13. SHIFTING THE COSTS? Storage Total Cost Element Traditional Ownership Private Cloud, Utility Depreciation X Maintenance X Labor X (?) Electricity X X Floor space X X Backups Public Cloud X New data circuits Subscription fees X X X Usage penalty X Performance risk X Onboarding or offboarding X

    25. 25. BOTTOM LINE: DO YOUR HOMEWORK  Assess your goals and priorities in moving to the cloud up front     What problems are you trying to solve? Understand your use cases Determine mix of delivery and financial models Carefully assess options available to you    Gain a full understanding of all associated costs Take a “full-TCO” approach to determining the costs of your choices Measure vendors and providers against realistic economics metrics as well as functional ones If cost is a high priority in moving to the cloud, make sure you fully understand all costs associated with the move – there is more to the cloud than just acquisition costs!
