‘Tis the season to lower your consumption costs.

‘Tis the season to lower your consumption costs.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and whilst all your employees are sat at home eating mince pies and Christmas Dinner the last thing you want to be thinking about is your IT infrastructure overheads.

If your company is still working from on-premise servers, you will be aware that those things cannot turn off. They will always be ON, keeping your data safe and your network available. But what if you don’t want or need it available? I mean, how many people check their emails or compute-intensive CAD on Christmas Day other than using it as an excuse to get away from Great Aunt Jean’s story about that time you ate a real penny rather than a chocolate one?

It’s not just for Christmas…

Think about other times your consumption does not need to be at full throttle? Are you a 9-5 business? Why pay for consumption at 2 am? Are you a weekday-only business – then why pay for consumption on Sunday morning when you and your employees are only just thinking about coffee?

Luckily with Microsoft Azure, we can ensure that you can change your consumption to mimic the peaks and troughs in your business, whilst still keeping all your data safe and secure. If you’ve told all your employees to go home at lunchtime on Christmas Eve, then there really is no need to keep paying as if they’re all toiling away like Scrooge is their boss!

The difference this can make to your cost efficiency is impressive, with up to 85% savings* – to find out how much you could potentially save, try the Azure calculator.

“The ability to work from anywhere with just a laptop and internet connection has to be one of the greatest features of switching to a cloud-based system. Now, having used our new system for the past few months, we can say we are extremely happy with the decision we made. ”
