Why the Switch to Cloud?

For a variety of reasons, cloud technologies are too compelling to ignore.

  • “Utility” billing (pay as you use)

  • “Unlimited” processing and storage

  • Elasticity to scale up or down

  • On demand, self-service

  • Highly automated

  • Dynamically scalable, virtualized resources provided as a service

AccessibilitySpeed

Cost

  • Maximize revenue

  • Reduce cost

  • Expedite time to market

  • Focus resources

  • Do more projects

Traditional vdi reality l.jpg

Traditional VDI Reality

  • … but major BARRIERS exist

  • Start upHuge up-front costs

  • Many moving partsComplex to design & build

  • Operationally IntensiveDifficult to maintain

  • Is it strategicDo you want to be building and managing data centers

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)


Disclaimer l.jpg

DISCLAIMER

  • TCO analysis is more contentious than politics so please understand this is one TCO framework (there are many!). The numbers can be debated but feel free to insert your own numbers into the framework

  • The numbers listed are based on list prices, industry averages, published analyst numbers and customer feedback

  • This analysis was done with REAL customers

  • All of the numbers behind the analysis are not in the presentations but can be found in our TCO whitepaper

Tco framework overview l.jpg

TCO Framework Overview

  • Solutions for Comparison

    • PC’s – Standard Desktops

    • Onsite Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

    • DaaS: Cloud-hosted desktops as a service

  • Cost Categories

    • Endpoint Costs

    • Data Center Hardware

    • Management Server Overhead

    • Software

    • IT Labor Costs

Typical oversights l.jpg

Typical Oversights

  • Labor/Time

    • When comparing to physical PC’s most compare just the annual cost of the physical desktop

  • Management Infrastructure required for VDI

Key findings standard windows 7 desktop l.jpg

Key Findings – Standard Windows 7 Desktop

  • Virtual desktops deliver savings upwards of 36% over desktop PC costs

  • Cloud desktops deliver further savings of 20+% over on-premises VDI

  • On-premises VDI delivers savings on labor but it is offset by the significant extra infrastructure required

  • The performance requirements for VDI necessitate adoption of external storage which adds substantial costs
