Evolve IP Introduces Industry's Most Comprehensive Cloud TCO Calculator

WAYNE, Pa. --(Business Wire)--

Today, Evolve IP, The Cloud Services Company™,┬áreleased a Projected Path Cloud TCO Calculator that provides IT executives with an accurate five-year projection of costs associated with operating and maintaining on-premise data centers and other computing devices. When completed, it gives organizations the ability to properly analyze the move to the cloud with an apples-to-apples comparison to keeping hardware, software, and management on-premise.

While many consultants and experts purport to "know" how much an organization can save going to the cloud, the truth is, nobody can tell for sure unless they actually run the numbers. Now, getting a sophisticated, long-term view is available to everyone who downloads the calculator, launching today free of charge at www.EvolveIP.net/TCO. This advanced financial tool takes into consideration the cost of hardware, software, employee time, power, and much more.

And for decision-makers who want to know how much they can save by going to the cloud, but who don't want to spend the time using a do-it-yourself tool, Evolve IP's (News - Alert) cloud services experts will produce a TCO model absolutely free of charge to qualified organizations on request -- simply email TCO@EolveIP.net.


"This is the same cloud TCO model we've used successfully with hundreds of clients, and now we're making it available to the public," says Joe Corvaia, Vice President at Evolve IP. "We use our Projected Path Cloud TCO Calculator to expose hidden costs, overly optimistic assumptions, and incomplete modeling to ultimately provide accurate, multi-year forecasts. We put our projected savings on record, on paper, and on your desk, and we're happy to make the tool available to IT executives everywhere."

Evolve IP's comprehensive Projected Path Cloud TCO Calculator can be downloaded at www.EvolveIP.net/TCO. There is no cost to download or use the tool. Qualified organizations can also ask Evolve IP's experts to conduct a cloud computing TCO or business continuity analysis, free of charge, by emailing Evolve IP at TCO@EvolveIP.net.
