Team gathered around tablet discussing cloud consumption models

We ensure the cloud works for you.

No two companies are the same, that’s why we offer various cloud consumption models to serve different needs. Our models feature different levels of managed services, from storage as a service to a fully managed cloud.

You shouldn’t have to compromise on your cloud services. Let us help you get what you want without having to pay for add-ons you won’t use.

Save more with OpEx models.

When it comes to purchasing, your company can classify IT service expenses as either Capital Expenditures (CapEx) or Operating Expenses (OpEx). While CapEx is traditionally associated with IT purchasing, Insight offers OpEx models to help you save more money on IT expenses.

With an OpEx consumption model, your IT expenditures are tax deductible in the year they’re made. In contrast, CapEx consumption models only allow you to recover costs over time through depreciation. For your convenience, we offer both OpEx and CapEx consumption models.

Explore our standard cloud consumption models.

We offer six standard models that represent a variety approaches, platforms and products. If our standard models aren’t the right fit, we can also build a custom consumption model to suit your needs.
