"Because we're in the early days of the cloud paradigm shift, there is much confusion about the direction of this ongoing transformation. In this paper, we looked beyond the current technology and focused on the underlying economics of cloud to define the destination -- where all of this disruption and innovation is leading our industry," Microsoft stated.
Based on our analysis, we see a long-term shift to cloud driven by three important economies of scale:
- larger datacenters can deploy computational resources at significantly lower cost than smaller ones
- demand pooling improves the utilization of these resources, especially in public clouds
- multi-tenancy lowers application maintenance labor costs for large public clouds. Finally, the cloud offers unparalleled levels of elasticity and agility that will enable exciting new solutions and applications.
