Public vs. private cloud cost comparison finds enterprise winners?
It's cheaper to run private cloud infrastructure than public cloud on a per-virtual machine basis for 41% of the 150 executive-level IT leaders that contributed to a recent survey by 451 Research LLC in New York. In some cases, the savings were dramatic -- 9% of the respondents indicated they saved at least 50% in a private cloud versus what they paid for public cloud consumption.A previous study in a 2016 study pinned down the breakeven point that makes private cloud less expensive than public cloud, said Owen Rogers, a 451 analyst. But it didn't clarify how many enterprises crossed that line to beat public cloud on price through their own in-house efficiencies.
