Study Notes

CapEx vs OpEx

  • Capital Expenditure (CapEx) involves upfront costs for hardware, software, and infrastructure, treated as assets on a company's balance sheet
  • Operational Expenditure (OpEx) involves ongoing expenses for services, maintenance, and support, treated as expenses on the income statement

Cloud Computing Basics

  • Cloud computing is a model for delivering IT services over the internet, on-demand and pay-per-use
  • It enables on-demand access to a shared pool of computing resources, such as servers, storage, databases, software, and applications

Consumption-Based Model

  • The consumption-based model in cloud computing allows users to pay only for the resources they use, reducing upfront costs and scaling up or down as needed
  • Advantage: provides flexibility, scalability, and cost savings
  • Benefit: eliminates the need for upfront capital expenditures and reduces the need for ongoing maintenance and support

Cloud Computing vs On-Premise Infrastructure

  • Cloud computing differs from maintaining CPUs and storage in your own datacenter, as it provides a scalable, on-demand, and pay-per-use model
  • Cloud computing reduces the need for upfront capital expenditures and ongoing maintenance and support costs associated with traditional on-premise infrastructure
