Smaller Cloud Files
Cloud Optimization – Migration to the Cloud
- Smaller cloud files = Less cloud storage needed
- Smaller cloud files = Less network bandwidth needed
- Smaller cloud files = Faster file uploads/downloads
- Smaller cloud files = Reduction of cloud monthly costs (storage and network)
Smaller Cloud Files Make your Cloud Better
Our optimization solutions, by reducing the size of cloud files, make your cloud faster cheaper and more agile.
Migration to the Cloud:
Migrating on-premise IT infrastructure to the Cloud generally implies uploading terabytes of files to the Cloud.
Files stored on your on-premise file servers and NAS devices, SharePoint servers, email servers and collaboration servers and maybe even files stored on hard drives attached to user computers have to be uploaded to the Cloud.
Take the opportunity of this cloud migration process to use our optimization solutions like Z-OptimiZr and ZipMail to reduce the size of these files.
With features like Native MS Office file optimization and Native image file optimization our optimization solutions can reduce the size of your files by 50% on average.
The resulting files remain in their original format and their rendering quality is fully preserved. Thus the optimization process is fully transparent for the users.
Cloud Acceleration and Performance Improvements:
The larger is the amount of Cloud data, the more time it takes and the more network bandwidth it consumes to access it (downloads, uploads, synchronization, backup and restore operations etc.). In the Cloud, every single bit of email and collaboration data sent by user A to user B has to go up and down to the Cloud, even if B is A’s next door colleague. This puts a serious pressure on your network links to the Cloud and may have an impact on performance.
Since files generally represent the most significant part of the network traffic to and from the Cloud, minimizing the size of all files using our optimization solutions like Z-OptimiZr and ZipMail helps avoiding cloud performance issues as well as making the best possible use of your network links to the Cloud.
Cloud Storage Optimization:
Cloud and Network Bandwidth:
Smaller cloud-hosted files consume less network bandwidth on your network links to the Cloud. Smaller cloud-hosted files are thus downloaded faster by the users.
Making files smaller using our optimization solutions benefits to the cloud users downloading and uploading these files but also to the other users of the network links to the Cloud (think about interactive cloud apps) because files generally consume most the network bandwidth.
It is sometimes surprising to see the amount of money spent on over-complex WAN compression or storage compression devices (delivering no compression results on MS Office files and picture files like JPG files that cannot be compressed by these devices, although these files account for a very significant, if not major, part of the network traffic and storage space consumed).
In comparison, our optimization software solutions like Z-OptimiZr and ZipMail are much cheaper and simpler. And they deliver, on average, a 50% volume reduction on MS Office files, picture files and other files as well. And since this volume reduction is permanent, it also applies to the disk space.
Cloud and Costs:
Of course, using our optimization solutions to avoid uncontrolled growth of your needs for cloud storage space has a direct incidence on cloud costs.
Since cloud storage costs are per GB per month, reducing your number of GB hosted on the Cloud reduces your cloud storage monthly costs.
For each GB or TB of cloud storage saved by our Z-OptimiZr and ZipMail optimization solutions, you thus save the corresponding amount of money you would have to spend each month to host it on the Cloud.
This recurring ROI also applies to the network bandwidth consumed by the files optimized by our solutions during the entire life cycle of these files.
And since smaller files are processed, downloaded and uploaded faster, our optimization solutions also deliver very significant performance improvement benefits.
Cloud, CO2 and Carbon Footprint:
Did you know that sending a couple of emails with large attachments puts as much CO2 into the air as driving an average-sized car 1 km?
Not only our optimization solutions like Z-OptimiZr and ZipMail do deliver impressive cloud storage space savings, network bandwidth savings and performance improvements, but they also deliver very significant benefits in terms of carbon footprint.
