Industry analysts like 451 Research are enabling buyers to have transparency over complex pricing models of public clouds, including TCO. As more and more CIOs are considering hybrid cloud and key question becomes what measurements can CIOs rely on to make apples to apples comparisons between public, hybrid and on-premise private solutions?
In this session, each of the panelists will bring their POV on pricing models based on their experience operating public and/or private OpenStack clouds.
Panelists include Juniper, a provider of OpenStack Distro and networking; GoDaddy, an operator of public and private clouds based on OpenStack; Midokura, a provider of software network virtualization and OpenStack operator; 6Fusion, a provider of vendor-agnostic Workload Allocation Cube (WAC) for cloud cost optimization.
They will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the various OpenStack consumption models (Managed, Distro, DIY) and cost models in the context of the application workloads.
Attendees should come away with a working model to evaluating OpenStack that they can implement for their own organization. They should also be able to build up a credible defense against going “all-in” on proprietary public clouds like AWS.
