IT managers know too well how difficult it is to meet technical requirements, while keeping expenses within the limits of tight IT budgets. In order to save money, some IT managers choose to cut corners, which can have dire consequences on the functioning of the organization by reducing its capacity to generate revenue and incurring unexpected costs.

Web hosting is an especially sensitive area. The total cost of ownership (TCO) and the return on investment (ROI) for a hosting solution can be difficult to calculate.
