The low cost and high earning associated with AWS and BOD

As Internet Slowdown Day drew to a close, many users may have found themselves pondering the "what if's" associated with the threat of removing net neutrality protections. In a time when more businesses rely on cloud services than ever before, it is apparent that Internet service providers control the productivity and functionality of enterprise workflows. A looming threat of bandwidth throttling is enough to drive some companies to adopting the Amazon Web Service Direct Connect or bandwidth on demand services.

Amazon Cloud Service cost
When analyzing Amazon AWS pricing structures, IT departments realize that paying for cloud computing provisions can benefit a business's revenue stream as well as increase employee productivity. GigaOM reported that Amazon cut their prices for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, Direct Connect and other AWS's 45 times over the last eight years. They even reduced the price for on demand services by 56 percent in April 2014. If that is not enough savings for increased efficiency, GigaOM measured the discount rates and found that some companies received volume discounts as high as 20 percent as of January 2014.

Increasing productivity results in higher earnings
Combine AWS costs with decreased spending on bandwidth can be more productive. Bandwidth on demand not only frees companies from the trappings of Internet service providers, but it also allows cloud applications and services to perform much better than on set bandwidth. Network World reported that backup operations on static connections are required to run much longer. Bottlenecking will even occur when trying to backup business-critical data during work hours. BOD mitigates those problems, which makes companies more efficient and employees more productive. These improvements leads to higher earnings while spending less to accomplish work tasks.

Network World also noted that media content can cause bandwidth needs to increase. This includes media such as video streams, music services and employee activity. For larger enterprises with many staff members, bandwidth demand can increase in an instant due to video conference calls combined with employees using cloud services. If IT departments are already spending money on Amazon EC2, the last thing the staff members will want is for those services to degrade. In order to keep business applications flowing unhindered to business locations, BOD is the best option.

Saving on overhead
Businesses also save on spending with the combination of AWS and BOD because data centers do not need to be constructed. InformationWeek reported that IT managers try not to overprovision resources as that will cost time and revenue to implement. However, with Amazon EC2, that is nigh impossible. The scalability of the cloud ensures that all applications will get the resources necessary to perform at high-speed. Once they are no longer needed, service providers stop billing the enterprise for using them.

Regardless of a business's infrastructure, opting for BOD and AWS lowers the importance of upscaling hardware and software. It can all be done on a user interface. The costs associated with these services save revenue, but cost are also reduced when it comes to employee paychecks and increased earnings from the gained productivity.
