To the cloud, or not to the cloud? The answer may be more simple and economical than you imagine. In this white paper, we’ll be providing a quick lesson in cloud economics, based on an ESG audit of a model that compares the monthly cost of public cloud infrastructure with the monthly cost of leasing a converged private cloud.
It’s a common misconception that renting IT infrastructure from an industry-leading public cloud vendor is more costeffective than purchasing and managing private cloud infrastructure. If you level the playing field and compare public cloud pricing to the all-in monthly costs of leasing a converged system at a hosted colocation facility, the monthly cost of leasing is typically lower, after the number of virtual machines increases beyond a break-even point.1 In the example shown in Figure 1, savings of up to 32% are achieved by moving the workloads from public cloud to Pure Storage FlashStack2 allflash-cloud, if the monthly public bill exceeds a $13,236 break-even point.
