The best choice of cloud to use is based on several factors including performance, application licensing, projected resource utilization,  and cost. TotalCAE helps you analyze the best choice for your situation.

An example analysis was done recently for a customer using an application that had hourly on-demand rental licensing, and “owned” licensing to help them understand their options.

Just looking at the performance of their model for each of the options showed similar performance numbers ( lower is better) with on-premise being fastest, following by Azure and AWS, but all within similar performance.

When adjusting for the actual details of this application vendors tiered pay-as-you-go licensing, the per job cost shows that many vendor licensing “pay as you go” rental algorithms may adjust the decision on which platform based on the required turn around time, budget, and planned resource utilization.
