The cost of using the public cloud

A Total Cost of Ownership analysis comparing AWS and VxRail

whitepaper

For many companies, the public cloud is an appealing option, either for companies lacking the capital and expertise to operate their own IT systems, or for organisations with existing data centres wanting more IT agility with limited risk.

For most companies, the cloud isn’t an either-or decision, but an operating model to be evaluated along with on-site infrastructure, and cost is an important consideration.

This report compares the Total Cost of Ownership of an on-site hyperconverged solution with a comparable set-up in the cloud. The on-site infrastructure is a Dell EMC VxRail hyperconverged appliance structure, and the cloud solution is Amazon Web Services (AWS).
