Do you know the true cost of running your web applications on your existing infrastructure?  This whitepaper will help you understand the different cost factors involved when you deploy and manage a scalable web application in an on-premises environment and compare the total cost to a variety of different AWS purchasing options.  Our analysis shows that AWS offers significant cost savings, up to 80%, compared to the equivalent on-premises deployments.



“If we were to use the traditional on-premises data center, we would have spent $34 million dollars in hardware and maintenance expenses during the first two years. With AWS cloud, we met our reliability and performance objectives at a fraction of the cost.”
– Mr. Chun Kang, Principal Engineer, Samsung

“We were able to reduce our DNS costs by 93%, which in tandem allowed us to shorten our time-to-live (TTLs) for easier, timelier management of DNS records. In the cloud, IP addresses are largely ephemeral, so we needed a service that would allow us to increase the amount of DNS requests due to a shorter TTL without increasing our spend. The AWS-based infrastructure has decreased the publication’s overall monthly operating costs by 75%. The publication has also been able to streamline its system administration personnel by approximately 50%.”

“SEGA reduced server costs by over 50% with On-Demand Instances when unplanned load spikes hit after game launches”
– Stuart Wright, IT & Network Director for the Online Operations team


“When considering AWS, we were able to go immediately to senior executives and sell the idea of a low-cost solution by giving them evidence,” “The solution cost $50 the first month, and that resonated very much with senior management. Thus, we were able to accelerate the product launch.”
– Jeff Kimsey, Associate Vice President of Product Management for NASDAQ OMX Global Data Products
