Cloud Computing: Enterprises Urged to Move VMs to the Cloud to Slash Both Server Footprint and Compute Costs

By Dick Weisinger

On average, enterprises that shift  their existing VMs to the cloud can reduce their IT server footprint by 54 percent and cut their budgets by 45 percent, according to a survey by TSO Logic.

In the survey of more than 10,000 servers and 25,000 VMs, the report finds that many of the physical servers currently deployed are at least three years old.  Over the last three years considerable advances in chip technologies occurred.  Intel chips in 2013 were 5th generation and used circuits on the order of 32 to 45 nanometers.  2016 chips are 9th generation and use 14 nanometer circuits.  As the circuit size shrinks, the number of transistors on the chip increase.  The result is that newer chips are significantly faster and use less energy.

Aaron Rallo, TSO Logic’s CEO, said that “the data demonstrates that there is plenty of low-hanging fruit that can easily drive significant savings for many enterprise organizations. Cloud migration is not an all-or-nothing proposition. By understanding current compute, how it’s used, and the economic differentials between current and future states, you can make smarter decisions about cloud strategies and other transformation investments.”
