Join David Linthicum for an in-depth discussion in this video Hard costs, part of Cloud Architecture: Design Decisions (2017).
- [Narrator] So, as we mentioned before,…hard cost savings are really operational savings.…In other words, it's how we save real money…around real operations and the day-to-day running…of the business.…And the best example of this is hardware and software.…If we're able to lease that stuff through an on-demand model…from a public cloud provider and we're able to avoid buying…hardware and software,…there's typically going to be a cost benefit in doing so.…Not always, but there's typically going to to be a cost benefit…in doing so.…So it's really looking at the as-is state in buying hardware…and software for everything,…and looking at the two piece state and the ability to…use public cloud providers.…
And the ability to kind of look at the differences…in terms of cost saving that's occurring by leveraging the…public cloud provider versus traditional hardware,…software model.…So the cloud allows us to do some processing with less money…and it's about defining what that is.…And the ability to kind of put that in context of what we're…
This course is targeted at IT professionals who have a basic understanding of the cloud and are ready to move on to creating a cloud architecture. David Linthicum begins with the business case and requirement patterns, and then moves onto mapping requirements to individual architecture concepts. There are multiple aspects to consider: storage, processing, governance, management and monitoring, security, performance, and more. David also includes discussion of advanced topics such as serverless architectures and containers. Watch and learn how to make sense of today's requirements, and plan your cloud-based architecture to scale with what your company needs to succeed tomorrow.
