Get more detail about the ProfitBricks technology and the cloud computing market.
In this strategy paper written by René Buest, you’ll learn key concepts that will help you and your team to achieve a successful digital transformation while leveraging the power and scalability of the public cloud.
Keeping a complex IT environment under control is no easy task. The IT department not only must tackle constant challenges within the digital transformation of its company, but it must also ensure that reliable IT infrastructure, required IT services, and a fail-safe are available at all times. In this context, the needs and requirements of the user also have to be taken into consideration and adapted on a continual basis.

Interest in the public cloud is accelerating and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) are looking for more flexibility from their cloud providers. First generation cloud providers (originally built for startups and developers) paved the way for a second-generation of cloud providers, such as ProfitBricks, that are much more aligned for both your business and your client’s workloads.
Making the decision to move a company’s infrastructure to the cloud can be one of the biggest challenges that business owners and IT decision-makers face in a fast-moving technology environment. New and legacy application deployments and upgrades, data storage, security, performance, disaster recovery as well as considering the financial complexities of CAPEX (Capital Expenditure) and OPEX (Operating Expenditure) mean that more than ever, understanding the true cost of running your infrastructure becomes imperative in today’s business climate.

How to Compare Apples and Oranges Among Cloud Providers
Cloud Computing is a rapidly growing and evolving IT delivery model that is replacing IT deployments that have traditionally been in on-premise or in corporate co-location facilities with dedicated physical servers or managed hosting environments. We are in the early stages of this 15 year IT cycle and many of the first offerings from the first generation of
providers have created a pricing and packaging model that have held to 2013. These early offerings have proven popular, but create numerous problems for Cloud buyers (Technical Teams, Business Unit Managers, Financial Teams etc.) as they try to compare providers and understand how to get the best price/performance for their budget dollars.

The new Intel® processors at ProfitBricks owe their high performance chracteristics to the Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology. Each Intel® Core is assigned a so-called hyper-thread, which enables parallelized workloads by exploiting free processor cycles. Adding Intel® processors to the CPU architectures that are available at ProfitBricks means you can now choose between Intel® cores and AMD cores for each of your virtual instances.Download
