Understanding cloud costs. Is serverless more?

ZDNet

This blog will look at an area of the business which might cause some people's eyes to automatically glaze-over, but my challenge is to take this potentially boring topic and flip it on its head. What am I talking about? Cost seems to drive most conversations around cloud adoption, but we all tend to pretend it doesn't. Each cloud is different, everyone knows that. But here's the news flash: the way that cloud providers charge for their clouds is equally as different, and it can actually be a dangerous conversation to enter if you're not equipped with the knowledge you need to navigate it well.



Why the world needs private clouds

Unless you are a brand new startup, you probably have legacy systems that your new applications need to integrate with. Of course, it doesn't have to be legacy data. It could be new IoT, analytics or other digital data you will be generating. Unless you plan to host all of this data on the public cloud, you probably need to consider a private cloud. Sure, you could purchase a direct link to a public cloud and host your apps there, but all this data transfer is likely to get very expensive if there is a lot of data going back and forth.

You know you need the cloud, but you re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
