Cloud Economics and Design Principles for Today and Tomorrow

If you haven't yet deployed a cloud solution, you will soon. It is important to approach the cloud with awareness of the importance of upfront design reviews before committing to a cloud solution. In this session, Rick and Melissa will share some insight into how solutions deployed in the cloud should be approached from an economic perspective. Specific examples of how cloud economics are important can be looked at with different types of cloud storage, internet traffic and region characteristics, as well as how these make a big difference in the overall economics of a solution. One of the cornerstone takeaways of this session is how modeling at the correct time in the project cycle is important when deploying or developing a solution with cloud services. By attending this session, you will be equipped to be much more informed on what to look for in a cloud solution from an economic perspective.
