Abstract

The aim of this study is to do the comparison of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) between Traditional Computing and Cloud Computing in higher institution. The higher instution that are choosen is University Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP). The problem addressed by this study is currently UniMAP Data Center use the Traditional Computing which are difficult to maintain, requires more data center space, large storage and server. This study help to compare and determine which computing technology is more cost effective. This study proposes solution using Cloud Computing as a lower cost option. There are five steps for creating a Total Cost of Ownership analysis which are project initiation, cost modelling, cost collection, evaluating and final report and ongoing refinement of the TCO Model. To calculate the TCO comparison, a tool to calculate the total cost of ownership (TCO) for both Traditional Computing and Cloud Computing will be done by using Microsoft Excel. This study compares the Traditional Computing and Cloud Computing over a period of 5 years.
