(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – With its launch of Cloud hosting services, Codero is further reinforcing its commitment to sustainable practices along with providing customers with an affordable way to scale their IT resources. Cloud hosting service is a beneficial IT strategy for those who rely upon a hosting service and need the ability to scale based on load, but also want to control costs. Codero’s latest infographic demonstrates how the cloud saves money while meeting sustainable business practices.
Cloud is an alternative to running all applications within a traditional data center and is very energy-efficient as depicted by the infographic. A 2011 study by Microsoft determined large companies running applications in the Cloud can reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions by 30%, while small businesses could achieve even greater energy savings … up to 90% per user.
Said Shelby Garlock, Director, Marketing of Codero, “At Codero, we are committed to providing the latest technology to our customers while keeping their costs down and maintaining sustainable business practices. This infographic powerfully demonstrates how our new Cloud offering achieves both.”
Cloud computing addresses the environmental issues by reducing data center real estate requirements and driving down power and cooling costs involved. The operational flexibility of Cloud, combined with its cost savings, is a benefit to those needing two or multiple servers. Paying for service on demand requires less upfront capital. Businesses can ramp up or down based upon current needs, which is one reason demand for Cloud is on the rise. A Gartner survey stated 39% of respondents worldwide indicated they allocated IT budgets to Cloud as a key initiative this year.
