How to Achieve Maximum ROI with Azure and AWS Backup

How to Achieve Maximum ROI with Azure and AWS Backup

As business environments become increasingly complex, organizations have found they have no choice but to migrate to the cloud for its easy accessibility and collaboration capabilities. Whereas legacy data storage models and data centers have been the norm for many years, the time has come for businesses around the world to move to a system that can handle data growth and technological investments. That’s where cloud-based offerings such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS) come in.

An amazing feature of Azure and AWS is that they can both provide you with storage that is scalable within seconds in a flexible, cost-effective manner. One of the most crucial aspects when storing on these systems, however, is proper backup. Protecting your data is incredibly important. Your organization must know how data can be recovered and how long it will take to recover it.

By deploying a Managed Backup system, you’ll be able to leverage all backup capabilities from a single portal with ease. This means you can spend your precious time and resources elsewhere. Let’s take a deeper look at how you can achieve maximum ROI with Azure and AWS through a Managed Backup system.

Learn to Manage Your Organization’s Complexities 

As stated before, your data environment is growing leaps and bounds in both volume and complexity. Azure and AWS help to ease that burden for organizations by alleviating the difficulties that come with a growing data environment. These cloud-based offerings are able to store all your important data without being held up by an aging infrastructure.

Azure and AWS do have their differences, though. Azure has multiple storage options whereas AWS does not, and AWS has flexible data transfer whereas Azure does not. You’ll have to weigh the pros and cons of each to figure out which cloud provider suits your needs best.

The fact remains, however, that you will absolutely want to secure the best ROI possible, whether that’s with Azure or AWS. With an industry-leading Managed Backup service such as BackupSimple, you are able to retrieve the data you’re storing with Azure or AWS at a moment’s notice. Through a single portal, you’ll be able to conveniently access the data you need through a single view without holding up the day-to-day of your business. This helps you remain in control of your data at all times.

Optimize Your Costs

A common source of overspending is underutilized assets. While both Azure and AWS are both quite flexible and scalable, they will not intrinsically optimize what assets are being used and what is still being paid for but going unused. With best of breed technology from Commvault, our Managed Backup services enable you to use only what your organization is truly in need of and eliminate capital costs. Working within your consumption needs will help you optimize your costs so your organization can allocate those resources where it could be better utilized.

With a traditional backup system, a lot of money goes towards the upfront investment in its physical infrastructure. In fact, that’s the highest cost associated with traditional backup! Azure and AWS evade these expenses by offering a much smaller investment up front.

Let’s break down the numbers to truly understand what you would be paying for. Take Azure, for example. An investment for five years in a legacy storage solution costs approximately $792,500. These costs include the initial investment, maintenance, setup and migration, energy expenses, and rackspace. With Azure, you’re receiving all of those things for a price of approximately $592,930 for five years. That is a cost savings of 37 percent or an ROI of 1.37x, simply because you are not spending the extra money on facilities.

Why Your Organization Should Consider a Third Party

We pride ourselves on the ability to support workloads of all types. No matter the size of your organization, our BackupSimple solution will be able to provide you with what you need to manage Azure or AWS. By supporting these cloud providers, we’re able to help lighten your daily backup efforts, improve security, and gain overall confidence in your environment. Plus, investing in a solution like BackupSimple will help secure an ROI that could truly benefit your organization for years to come.

Let’s take a look at the numbers once more. As you’ll recall, a legacy storage solution would set you back about $792,500 over five years - but that figure didn’t consider backup expenses. Well, the initial investment, license, employee costs, setup and migration, energy expenses, and rackspace for legacy backup sits at $1,715,000 over five years.

For those who choose to go ahead and invest in BackupSimple, energy expenses and investments into rackspaces are eliminated. By lowering these facility costs, you would only be paying for the cost of Azure or AWS, BackupSimple, and employee costs for administrative tasks. That totals out to $1,198,830 over five years. For those calculating, that’s a whopping cost savings of 43 percent, meaning you’d be able to secure an ROI of 1.43x.
