IT organizations are implementing and defining their strategy around which cloud is most appropriate to host what workload. However, a cloud-first strategy and a desire to consume infrastructure as a service has led to many workloads being deployed on clouds that may not be the ideal choice. With many facets to the financial costs of hosting workloads including physical compute/networking/storage resources and human expertise, we have found that many customers are seeing significant savings when they migrate their long running or always on workloads running in public clouds back on-premises.
This session focuses on how an OpenStack private cloud has distinct cost advantages over an AWS given certain workload requirements. More specifically, we’ll highlight a customer use case leveraging Rackspace Private Cloud powered by Red Hat in the data center of their choosing to host their heavy utilization and high network bandwidth workloads with significant cost savings compared to AWS.
