Cloud Computing 101

Imagine a corporate data center. Say, it has 100+ servers, air conditioning, power backup, line conditioners – all paid for and owned by the company — and skilled personnel to keep the data center running. Say it costs the company $350,000 per month, or $11,666 per day, to keep the data center operational. Whether it is a weekday, weekend, or the night before Christmas, the company continues to incur a daily cost of $11,666 towards the infrastructure.

Now imagine your local utility company that provides power to your home. They have huge plants full of equipment that you never had to pay for. When nobody is home and all lights are off, your home consumes only the minimum power required to run the equipment that hums along perpetually. However, when the whole family is at dinner, the washer-dryer is spinning, TVs are running, your power consumption spikes significantly. If the entire family goes vacationing to the Bahamas for a week, your power consumption reduces to a trickle. read more
