Free cloud pricing report 2021

Estimating and comparing cloud pricing between public and private clouds has always been challenging. While leading public cloud providers such as AWS, Azure and Google, maintain the official pricing for their cloud services in a form of cost-per-resource metrics, resembling the same in the private cloud space is not trivial. As a result, the most effective way to compare costs between public and private clouds is to estimate the total cost of ownership (TCO) of the workloads and use it as a subject of the comparison.
