Be smart about where you spend your IT dollars. Keep in mind that you don’t have to spend a load of cash to keep up with the big guys. Take advantage of pay-as-you-go utility computing offerings that allow you to plug into state-of-the-art servers and storage to handle your compute-heavy projects — without the worry or expense of managing a complex IT infrastructure or retaining the expertise and staff to build one. Just plug in and harness the security, scalability, and power of grid computing. You’ll look bigger — and scarier to your competitors than you actually are.
