When evaluating Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), the most crucial aspect to look for is scalability. The ability to easily scale your infrastructure up or down based on your needs ensures optimal performance and cost-efficiency. I found this service page at https://www.cleveroad.com/services/it-infrastructure/ particularly helpful as it highlights their expertise in providing scalable and reliable IaaS solutions, making it a valuable resource for anyone seeking to find a robust infrastructure partner.

  1. Lower startup cost.

  2. Reduced TCO.

  3. Provides choices in delivery mode like long term Commit at discounted price or pay as you use basic.

  4. Faster time to value.

  5. Always on latest version of software.

  6. Try before buy and then scale as needed.


Points to keep tab on:



  • Initially, the revenue sinks as the cost rises, until it begins to even out and then revenue eventually exceeds. Refer to “Satya Swallows the Fish” blueprint.

  • Transitioning to a SaaS and Subscription business requires both a business and culture shift, with highly coupled customer engagement model.

Operating System. Sometimes the O/S can be vitally important. I've learned that lesson the hardway.

Obvisously I'll say ROI. Assuming going to the cloud will raise availability and lower cost.
