Infrastructure and License Cost Savings

Most organisations are moving away from traditional on premise relative static infrastructure environments to much more dynamic and flexible cloud models on platforms like AWS and Azure. The compute, storage and infrastructure costs are often the initial driver – however the cloud platforms provide marketplace’s to sell software and solutions using the same utility hourly billing models.

MidVision Cloud provides software on AWS and Azure – pre-installed images with enterprise software ready to run in a matter of minutes.

Development

The easiest and fastest solutions to move to a public cloud is often Development environments. MidVision Cloud supports hundreds of development organisations run enterprise software on public clouds – allowing developers to provision, configure and start using their software as and when they need it.

Test

Traditionally organisations have run large test environments that are only utilised for a fraction of the time. Cloud platforms provide the infrastructure models to only run them when required – with MidVision Cloud providing the hourly utility billing across entire stacks. There are over 8500 hours in a year – many test environment requirements could be satisfied with a tenth of that!

Forecasting

A major headache for many customers is forecasting. Asking an organisation what their infrastructure and licensing requirements are in three years from now is not only expensive, time consuming and error prone – but also results in most cases of procuring shelf ware that is never used. MidVision Cloud’s simply hourly billing models removes any requirement to forecast – simply pay for what you use.

If you already own an enterprise license for a product  – you can use a BYOL model and procure hourly licenses from MidVision if you need them.

Peak Production

Modern cloud platforms like AWS and Azure provide advanced features like Auto-Scaling that allow new infrastructure to be brought online to handle peak workloads. Using hourly billing for your software you are able to take advantage of the power of the under lying cloud platform without the need to procure huge amounts of perpetual licensing to handle the infrequent, but potentially high high watermark usage.

Disaster Recovery

Disaster Recovery can be extremely cost effectively delivered with passive infrastructure configured – but most of the time not running – on a public cloud. Hourly utility infrastructure and licensing means the costs are almost negligable unless a Disaster Recovery is invoked – at which point you will incur costs at a fraction of delivering in any other way.
