Hosting Center is cheaper than Cloud Computing says McKinsey & Company

For many companies it can be cheaper to buy the same infrastructure as in cloud computing. This is the conclusion from the consulting and advisor company McKinsey & Company. The report assuming that many companies want to use a shared sky, which many european companies will not do. Most companies does not ike the fact that their data is not encrypted and available on Amazon or Google Servers. If you want to build and maintain your own PRIVATE SKY it is actually cheaper than the costs for estabishment and maintaing running on the most know brands of Cloud Computing Providers. It is because that existing equipment can be re-used.

The compare system is by using the prices from Amazon EC2, and it turns out that Amazon is higher insted of buying your own equipment and use it as Server Hosting or Outsourcing in a ordinary Hosting Center. Many other companies such as Appriro agree that it is cheaper when we talk about SAAS – Software As A Service. McKinsey is setting the price pr. processor in a arge datacenter to 45 dollars pr. month. Garntner Group does not agree, as they tel the prices are much lower and thereby there is a bigger benefit for the provider.

Windows Server 2008 – TOP10 Hosting fordele

1. Udvidet fokus på sikkerhed

Windows Server 2008 er bygget op på en helt ny platform med fokus på sikkerhed. Windows Server 2008 giver dig muligheden for kun at installere de nødvendige services, som serveren skal bruge. Udvidet auditing, Drive Encryption, Event Forwarding og Rights Management Services er bare nogle af de teknologier, som kan hjælpe organisationer med at leve op til de konstant voksende IT regelstandarder.

2. Server Management er blevet nemmere

Gør de daglige problematikker med serveradministrationen mere enkel er en af de mange tilføjelser til Windows Server 2008. Nye management værktøjer, som Server Manager Console, giver brugeren en enkel, samlet konsol til at håndtere serverens konfiguration og systeminformationer og giver et visuelt billede af serverens status samt evt. problemer.

3. Optimeret netværksydelse

Windows Server 2008 introducerer de største ændringer i netværksydelse siden Windows NT 4.0. Nye teknologier som Receive Window Autotuning, Receive Side Scaling, og Quality of Service (QOS) kan hjælpe virksomheder med at udnytte nutidens IT løsninger som multiGigabit netværk og integreret IP sec.

4. Bedre ydelse med Windows Vista og Windows 7.0

Fordi Windows Vista og Windows Server 2008 er bygget ud fra den samme platform, betyder det, at de deler en del af de nye teknologier på tværs af netværk, storage, sikkerhed og management. En virksomhed vil hurtigt kunne se og mærke fordelene ved at bruge Windows Server 2008 og Windows Vista som den bedste løsning for deres interne PC’ere og servere.

5. Beskyt hele netværket imod usikre PC’ere

Network Access Protection (NAP) gør noget ved den kendte problematik, at usikre PC’ere tilgår virksomhedens netværk og derved udsætter det for unødvendige trusler. NAP sikrer, at PC’ere der tilgår netværket, lever op til virksomhedens retningslinjer med hensyn til “pc sundheds” krav og tildeler en begrænset adgang til de, som ikke lever op til kravene og yder samtidig en hjælpende hånd i retning mod at få PC’erne tilbage til den krævede tilstand.

6. Forbedret Scripting og Task Automation

Nye teknologier som Windows Powershell, et commandline og scripting sprog, hjælper professionelle til at automatisere opgaver. Med det nye værktøj bliver 120 standard og commandline tools syntaks konsistente.

7. Genoptag kontrollen med dine eksterne kontorlokationer

At håndtere servere, services og sikkerhedskontrol på eksterne lokationer er en konstant udfordring for IT professionelle. Windows Server 2008 gør administration af eksterne servere en del nemmere ved hjælp af en forbedring af Active Directory, med ReadOnly Domain Controllers og en separat administratorrolle. Yderligere kan du ved hjælp af teknologier som BitLocker og Server Core installation option bedre skabe et mere sikkert miljø på den enkelte lokation.

8. Centraliseret styring af applikationer

Med Windows Server 2008 vil brugeren have en yderst sikker adgang til interne applikationer via firewallvenlige porte. Med Windows Server Terminal Services RemoteApp vil det kun være det enkelte applikationsvindue, som vil åbnes og ikke hele den eksterne desktop.

9. Windows Server Virtualisation

Windows Server 2008 bølgen vil indeholde Windows Server Virtualisation (WSv), en kraftfuld virtualiseringsteknologi, som indeholder styrke management og sikkerhedsmuligheder. Windows Server virtualisering vil hjælpe virksomheder med at reducere deres omkostninger, give dem et mere fleksibelt IT miljø til bl.a. disaster recovery, test & udvikling.

10. En yderst kraftig Web og applikationsplatform

Windows Server 2008 tilbyder en sikker platform, som er let at håndtere, hvis man vil udvikle eller hoste applikationer eller services via den enkelte server eller internettet. Nye muligheder er bl.a. en mere simpel management konsol, udvidet sikkerhed og en bedre ydelse drevet af det indbyggede Internet Information Services 7.0 (IIS7), ASP.NET, and Windows Communication Foundation.
