This quote by the famous British actor Craig Charles has never rung more true than in today’s business landscape. The battlefields are littered with so many examples where businesses refused to keep up and evolve. When is the last time you went to rent a movie at a Blockbuster, used a Blackberry device, mailed a letter at the Post Office, or even taken a taxi? It’s a Netflix, iPhone, Email, Uber kind of world out there. This same type of evolution is taking place in your datacenter whether you want to admit it or not.
Most people want to be out of the server business not because they have fallen out of love with their equipment, but because this model simply cannot keep up.
If your competitor can get that new application running in hours and you can’t, you lose. If you can’t recover from a failure in minutes, you lose. If your business isn’t exploring the power of the cloud, you lose. There is no such thing as Neutral, you are either moving forward or you are moving backwards. Tim Robbins may have put it best in his famous role of Andy Dufrane in The Shawshank Redemption, “I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy living or get busy dying.”
You don’t build a power plant to run the lights at your home, you connect to the local power grid paying for what you consume when you consume it. Wouldn’t it be odd if you had to wait three weeks for the air to cut on in your house when you turned the dial on the thermostat? What if the power company wanted to charge you upfront for what you may use over the next three years? You wouldn’t put up with this model in your home, so why do you put up with it in your business?
