Estimating and comparing costs between various cloud platforms has always been challenging. While public cloud providers maintain the list prices for their services in the form of cost-per-resource metrics, doing the same in the private cloud space is not trivial. However, even clear cost-per-resource metrics do not give a complete picture of the total cost of ownership (TCO), as businesses are usually not able to calculate their demands for all types of cloud resources on their own.
About Canonical’s Cloud Pricing Report 2022
In order to better understand cloud pricing concepts and their impact on cloud infrastructure choices, Canonical ran a community survey to collect responses from hundreds of cloud users. This, along with price comparisons from leading cloud providers and cost analyses from sample cloud applications, resulted in a report on cloud pricing that is now available for free.
