Cirba Inc., the leading provider of software-defined infrastructure control software released the results of a study it conducted on factors impacting the cost of leveraging Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and IBM SoftLayer. The study revealed that workload patterns and hosting models can dramatically impact the cost of leveraging public cloud in ways that people might not expect.

“There is an assumption that public cloud is inexpensive, but it all depends on the requirements of the applications you need to host,” said Andrew Hillier, CTO & co-founder of Cirba. “Determining the optimal hosting strategy for an application is not simple, and requires science, not assumptions and opinions. This study clearly illustrates the impact that workload patterns and cloud hosting models have on total cost, and underscores the need for analytics that can optimize hosting decisions and drive automation.”
