Here at GoGrid, we recently released our new Hosted Private Cloud service. Hosted Private Cloud is the first cloud solution that is housed in a datacenter (hosted) with each client having their own dedicated nodes containing their private cloud (private). This single-tenant implementation addresses many of the security concerns had by cloud skeptics and maintains the ease and flexibility of public cloud solutions.
Hosted Private Cloud is not only technically different from other Private cloud implementations, but the costs are also significantly different (and substantially less!). Let’s break down the cost comparisons between GoGrid’s offering and other solutions.
Other private cloud solutions include several more costs and require in-house hardware with a significant amount of capital expenditure. Hosted Private Cloud, on the other hand, has no capital expenditure and solely charges operating costs. And the solution is completely managed and operated by GoGrid (pure OPEX).
In a case study between GoGrid’s Hosted Private Cloud and VMware’s collocated private cloud, it was found that VMware’s solution cost 2.25x more than Hosted Private Cloud and had CAPEX of 42% while GoGrid had a CAPEX of 0.
