As we head towards the end of the year, a quick backwards glance at developments highlight that the end of the on-premise server era is upon us. The cloud has made on-premise infrastructure redundant and delivers numerous benefits which will help grow businesses and bottom-lines.

To help Gulf businesses migrate to the cloud, Cobweb has created the two-series CobwebCompleteApplicationHosting service based on the Microsoft Azure cloud computing service. This is specifically for building, testing, deploying and managing applications and services through Microsoft’s global network of managed data-centers.

Here’s a snap-shot of the benefits of migrating off-premise to the cloud which in essence boil down to saving time, money and resources.

  • You can subscribe to a monthly service to help you better budget hosting costs
  • By migrating to the cloud, you no longer need to worry about server life-cycles coming to an end and you'll be kept abreast of technological developments because cloud services are constantly updated
  • You can save on physical server, maintenance and upgrade costs as well as Internet bandwidth charges: Azure’s elastic bandwidth means your cloud-serving capability will automatically scale up when you need it and you only pay for the vital stretch period though specific configuration is required to achieve auto scale
  • You’ll save on utility bills because you won’t need electricity to run or cool your server
  • And you’ll be playing your part in saving the planet by reducing your carbon footprint through power savings
  • We’ve estimated the cost savings you could accrue through migration and in just over a year with Microsoft Azure you could save US $3,334 based on the Azure TCO calculator
  • What’s more migration is hassle-free as Cobweb Solutions will handle the entire migration and supply 24/7 back-up support

Even better news for 2019 is the fact that Microsoft is to launch two data-centers in the UAE providing users with data-sovereignty and much improved latency.

So here's to a whole new year of opportunities — on the cloud!
