Technology’s 3 Most Common Pain Points

  • Staffing
    • Subject matter experts are hard to find
    • Employees are expensive to recruit, hire, train, and manage
    • Technical operations require 17 different skill sets
  • Containing Economics
    • DIY is very expensive until your scale is massive
    • Throwing money at the cloud
    • Most outsourced services do not lower your staff’s workload
  • Scaling Correctly
    • The nagging fear that when sales, marketing, product clicks – “the site is down”
    • The way the cloud scales is fundamentally flawed
    • If your staff is “learning on your dime,” those are expensive lessons

Cloud Economics Primer

  • 187 Amazon Elastic Compute Units (ECU) = 1 Peak R420 server
  • Average cost is about 6.5 cents per ECU, per hour
  • Cost to use 187 ECU only one hour per day = $377 / month
  • Cost to use 187 ECU 31 days * 24 hours = $9,048 (over 9X Peak Hosting)
  • Break Even occurs at:
    • 82 hours total
    • Over 2 hours per day/month
    • About 3 days in a row
  • Public and Private Cloud do not include Peak Hosting’s:
    • Subject matter expertise
    • 100% UpTime SLASM, including maintenance windows
    • Deterministic server and SAN performance
    • 40 Gigabit 1-hop network with no jitter and 20 microseconds latency

“Peak Hosting’s fully managed services allow MindJolt to focus on gaming and our customer experience. We tried the cloud and its high cost, lower performance, and unreliability were deal breakers. Peak Hosting’s fully managed dedicated servers are higher performing, have never gone down, and all at a far lower price point that cloud services. MindJolt’s three-pillar approach is rare within the games industry and Peak plays an important role in our continued success.
