Outsourcing to the cloud can save money, and in more ways than you may have considered. It’s important to know where savings can come from and how you may or may not benefit – making sound Return on Investment (ROI) and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) decisions depend on it.

How much money can be saved depends on your own situation, industry, size, sunk costs, regulations, geography and a host of other considerations. Consider these ten ways to save money in the cloud, as well as lessen complexity in your own data center.

  1. Certifications and voluntary auditing not only help save money; they help you keep it.
