In the Introduction of this Blog Series we mentioned that Control is the No. 1 reason (in our experience that is) as to why enterprise business is afraid to make the switch to the cloud. We first introduced the current state of DevOps as being asymmetric – which to date the majority of companies are corralled in this category, though according to Forbes, the adoption of DevOps in enterprises is up 71%.* Even with all the pitfalls and money wasting problems, we have found businesses like having management in-house and their problems close to vest so they can remedy issues quickly – or so they think. Next, we introduced Symmetry DevOps™ by PvDC, where we discussed all the benefits of why a cloud environment (hybrid or 100%) can not only be more efficient and cost productive, but it can be managed close to vest as well.
We have finally arrived to where we have been working towards. The Apples to Oranges conversation around pricing models that so many of us discuss but hardly know the honest advantage one can give over the other when we get down to the brass tacks of your unique environment. To date, we have given you the resources to determine your current technical requirements and the questions to ask in order to determine your application’s business value. (If you have no idea of what we are talking about, read our latest and greatest blogs at Net3 Blog) We have done all of this so you can have a detailed execution plan for your compute resources moving forward.* With this groundwork laid out it is now time to compare pricing for the Cloud vs. On Prem.
