The word is out! There’s actually economic growth, at least in America:
- 2014 Was the Largest Job Growth in U.S. in 15 years
- U.S. Becomes #1 in GDP Growth
- US Grows, Despite World Slowing
- Fed Sees Strong U.S. Growth in 2015
But Enterprises Can’t Afford to Waste Money on IT Infrastructure
All businesses want to grow, but with all the market (and world economic) uncertainty no business wants to sync all of their capital into on-premise IT infrastructure. The non-recoverable cost to these investments are legacy (Recall the glut of IT equipment after the dot.com boom/bust).

What’s the Cost of a New Data Center?
Creating a new or augmenting your existing data center is an expensive proposition. The following factors must be considered:
Design, Permits and Approval, Outside Preparation
Utility Improvements, Main Switch, Transfer Switches UPS Systems, TVSS System, Generators w/ Enclosures Conduit and Cabling for Generators, Data Center Lighting Lighting Protection, Room PDUs
HVAC, Raised Floor, Condensate Drains, Leak Detection
Security and Monitoring:
Facility Management System, CCTV , Building Access System
Core Network Equipment, Construction cost, Floor Space, Electricity
This on-line calculator, comparing on-premise with cloud hosted resources, will shed some light on the equation (the cost savings is usually around 3 times, in favor of cloud resources).
The Intelligent Growth Path is Through a Cloud VPC (Virtual Private Cloud)
This is especially true for the dinCloud VPC. In this environment, all the infrastructure, wiring, HVAC, and facility costs are included. In addition, all resources are available:
There are no long term costs, or upfront data transfer fees. And all the equipment can be provisioned and deprovisioned and billed at a monthly rate.
dinCloud allows an enterprise to handle “burst” growth without absorbing large IT costs upfront.
