Why Read This Report

Public cloud pricing is not as simple as many claim. Now that cloud is the preferred platform for apps that win, serve, and retain customers, adoption and spending are both up. Clients often seek Forrester's help to spend wisely. Beyond simple pay-per-use pricing, the leading public cloud platform providers now offer a broad range of discount plans, prepurchase options, and large enterprise discounts. This report explores how leading public cloud providers approach pricing to help infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders make sense of this dynamic market and keep their own cloud costs down.
