IBM Cloud400 hosting is 65% less expensive than other private on-premise servers. from the various reports, which looked at the total cost of ownership (TCO) of various types of hosting environments, found that IBM Cloud400 hosting is significantly less expensive than both physical dedicated servers and other cloud-based hosting solutions.
The report found that, over a three-year period, the TCO for an IBM Cloud400 server is $4,780, while the TCO for a physical dedicated server is $7,960. The TCO for a cloud-based server from another provider is $5,560. The report also found that IBM Cloud400 hosting provides a number of other benefits over other types of hosting environments. These benefits include:
– Increased flexibility: IBM Cloud400 hosting provides customers with the ability to quickly scale their server environment up or down as needed, without the need to purchase or lease additional physical hardware.
– Reduced complexity: IBM Cloud400 hosting customers do not need to worry about the complex infrastructure management tasks that are required with other types of hosting environments.
– Improved performance: IBM i hosting customers experience significantly better performance than they would with a physical dedicated server or a cloud-based server from another provider.
– Increased security: IBM Cloud400 hosting customers benefit from the same high-level security that is provided by IBM to its own internal data centers. This includes the ability to perform any data or system management functions from a safe and secure location.
– Greater system resiliency: IBM Cloud400 customers are protected from some types of hardware failures that a dedicated server customer would have to deal with, such as a failed physical disk drive. In addition, IBM Cloud400 hosting customers are less vulnerable to most types of network issues, such as high latency or bandwidth issues, which is one of the major concerns when a client is hosting its own private data center.
In general, IBM Cloud400 hosting is a great option for customers who are looking for a cost-effective and reliable way to host their applications and data. It is also a good choice for customers who want the flexibility and scalability that cloud-based hosting can provide, but who do not want to sacrifice performance or security.
Overall, the report found that IBM Cloud400 hosting provides a number of advantages over other types of hosting environments, including a lower TCO, increased flexibility, reduced complexity, improved performance, and increased security.
