If you’ve provisioned resources in Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, or Amazon Web Services (AWS), you already know that there are many factors that affect cost. For a compute instance, for example, the cost might depend on the number and type of CPUs, number and type of GPUs, amount of memory, type of storage, which region it’s located in, whether it’s on-demand or reserved, and so on. The situation is similarly complex for storage, and these are just two of the possible cloud building blocks. Across the three public clouds, there are more than 500 services available, making it extremely difficult to figure out the cost for any single resource or service, or compare similar services across clouds in an apples-to-apples fashion.
We tend to assume it’s easier to determine the cost of our on-premises infrastructure. However, at least cloud costs are written down. The true cost of on-premises infrastructure includes not only the costs for servers and storage resources used (capital expenditure (capex)), it also includes management costs, associated network costs, and facilities costs (operational expenditure). Just as in the cloud, these costs vary with location.
A practical way to address the uncertainties in determining and optimizing costs both in the cloud and on premises is to keep things simple. Regardless of how much you’re spending on a given resource, if you use less of that resource, it will cost less. This is particularly true in the cloud where you might consume many resources on demand.
Join us to see how you can achieve greater efficiency and optimization both in the cloud and on premises. The ability to identify areas of waste, and the individual resources responsible, can thereby reduce on premise and cloud costs. Also, by leveraging on machine learning, analytics, and automation, learn how you can optimize compute costs, while maintaining application availability and performance for workloads running in public clouds.
