On CIO.com, analyst Hyoun Park discusses recent cloud pricing changes by Oracle, Amazon, and Google in context of understanding who is actually providing the cheapest cloud. In this blog, Park posits that Oracle’s new Universal Credits for IaaS and PaaS usage are fundamentally different from the traditional pricing models for cloud and shows that the enterprise cloud is coming of age.
One of Park’s assertions is that the most granular pricing may not be the cheapest because the complexity of detailed pricing prevents companies from optimizing their costs. Will this trend affect your cloud costs?
