    If your plan for cloud computing is simply to move your existing set of virtual machines into a cloud environment, you're likely doing it wrong and will end up paying more to provide services than you are right now. You need to carefully evaluate not just the pricing structures of various cloud service providers -- they vary dramatically -- but to look at alternate ways of achieving your service goals beyond simply migrating your VMs.

    Informed by Nemertes Research's unique benchmark research on cloud, we will explore topics including:
    • How different providers structure their costs for compute, storage, and network: What is standard and what is extra, and how units of consumption are defined
    • How additional components, such as security, database, or load balancer services could affect even a conservative migration of a solution
    • How data will flow among parts of a solution and what costs may be associated
    • How to get a handle on modeling the cost of solutions spanning multiple clouds
    • How PaaS and other serverless computing options may allow changes in architecture that radically affect how a service is delivered and how much it will cost
    • How to model TCO for cloud use
