What are the three cost factors involved in cloud data center?

When you choose a cloud data center, you must know the cost factors which are involved. Cloud data centers are built for purposes different from that which drives construction of traditional data centers. The cloud data center is built to a distinct scale and not restricted by limitations of traditional data centers. The cloud data center can also carry out different workloads compared to the traditional data centers. Given this design approach, it is but natural that economics of cloud data centers are also vastly different from traditional data centers. To get an idea of how much it will really cost to have a cloud data center, you need to consider three key factors as follows:

- Labor costs make up about 6% of total expenses involved in operating a cloud data center.
- Computing costs make up about 48% and is the highest because it deals with resources and installations.
- Cooling facilities and power distribution make up about 20% of the total expenses.

There is no denying the fact that cloud data centers will also have some additional costs like construction and buying land. So, the total costs will typically cover the cost of facilities, server technology, equipment's like hardware and software, bandwidth costs, networking costs, costs for recruiting engineers and technical experts to carry out IT tasks etc.
