AWS commissioned IDC to interview 11 organizations that deployed applications on AWS. IDC set out to understand the long-term economic implications of moving workloads onto Amazon cloud infrastructure services, the impact of moving applications on developer productivity and business agility, and the new opportunities that businesses could address by moving resources onto AWS. IDC discovered that the five-year total cost of ownership (TCO) of developing, deploying, and managing critical applications in AWS delivered a 64.3% savings when compared with deploying the same resources on-premises or in hosted environments. The findings also showed a 560% ROI over five years and 81.7% less downtime.
