The decision to adopt a Platform as a Service solution should be driven by agility and rapid deployment rather than cost as these are the primary benefits of developing in the cloud. While the Cloud may provide a low cost barrier to entry, the amount spent over time may reach in-house levels. This tool will help you calculate and compare in-house costs to cloud service costs by looking at:
- Hardware costs
- Software licensing costs
- Facilities costs
- Cloud service costs
Use this tool to compare TCO for on-site application development to cloud-based development platforms.
