Cheaper Cloud Networks Aren’t Better
One of the cloud’s biggest benefits is that it can save you money on overhead expenses. However, the cheapest cloud isn’t always the best option for your law firm.
While one cloud platform might cost less than others, patterns of use can drive up expenses. Applications require compute and storage resources to run effectively, and user demand can necessitate more of these services. Eventually, cost creep will cause you to lose the savings you gained, and you’ll end up paying more in the end.
Rather than focusing on the cheapest available option, use cloud governance and metrics programs to monitor usage patterns and their direct impact on your bills. This will eliminate any surprises from your services and ensure you’re using them effectively. Stay tuned with Afinety to learn more about your cloud options.
