Nobody should ever be in a position when their IT costs are seriously jeopardizing the health of their company. It's not only about the best technology, it's about the cost of that technology. We always present a 5 year cost comparison between Cloud & on-premise solutions, and detail the advantages & disadvantages of both. Why 5 Years? Our on-premise server solutions have, at least, a five year life. Read on...
HOW WE HELPED OUR CLIENT
We saved our client over $580,000 a year taking the majority of their virtual servers from the Cloud to an on-premise solution. inSync migrated 49 of their 51 virtual servers, hosted in several Cloud & Co-lo facilities, to a sophisticated on-premise cluster server solution. The on premise investment was $100,000.
Six members of their internal staff, & a consultant, were laid off also resulting in significant savings. We took over all of their responsibilities including their network, custom software, programming...Our client's Cloud network was undocumented & over-complicated resulting in recurring networking issues.
Our on premise solution & simple network infrastructure resolved all of their problems & saved hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. They were ecstatic.
