If you own or manage an online service or resource, then I am asking you to do this little experiment. Imagine that your online service is perfect, ideal, that it works flawlessly, quickly directing your users to the services or products you offer and easily helping them buy it. Your customers never find your website being down or slow, even during the sales season. So, they come back to buy more, and recommend your website to their friends. Amazing picture! But in reality, is it completely true for your online store or service?
Will cloud hosting cost more?
The benefits of the cloud
Case study: how AWS Auto Scaling cloud architecture works
Did the use of 150 servers cost too much? Relatively no, because they were added just for the time when they were needed, so they only brought back more revenue. Because of Auto Scaling and other cost-optimization techniques, on Black Friday, the hosting cost for the day was equal to 0,05% compared to the day’s revenue.
Conclusion: when perfect is not the enemy of good
If you are not in the cloud yet, chances are migration to the cloud is the next step you need to take on your road of success.
