    REPORT: Embrace Cloud Economics For On-Premises Enterprise Storage

    Business Case: The Infrastructure Transformation Playbook

    October 16, 2018Naveen Chhabra

    Public cloud storage isn't a panacea, considering enterprise concerns about privacy, governance, availability, and unpredictable costs, but the basic opex cost model is attractive. Enterprises are increasingly demanding on-premises consumption-based pricing from both legacy and new vendors as part of new procurements. To help infrastructure and operations (I&O) pros get the most benefit from consumption-based storage, this report reviews the basic concepts and variations of this economic model, which intentionally mimics cloud pricing.

This is not due to a lack of technology solutions, but rather a lack of vision and commitment.
