One of the primary reasons companies look to the public cloud is because they believe it can reduce their total cost of IT ownership (TCO). But the truth is cloud can often be more expensive than on-prem deployments, and if you’re not careful, the services you run can lead to lock in and limit your flexibility. In this webinar, we provide guidance on total cost of ownership in the cloud. We also cover how and when to use cloud object storage, preemptible instances, and transient clusters. Lastly, we look at how increasingly popular multi-cloud strategies can help you lower costs and risk.
