This article is written to help everyone who either have an idea or concept and looking cloud services to visualize their concept or those who want to save money and have better extensibilities for their current running business using Windows Azure cloud service. This is how the cost is calculated in cloud services?
Note: Most of cloud service don’t charge any ingress/egress cost if cpu cores, storage, databases, everything related with your cloud application, exist within same data center.
So if you are an entrepreneur looking to adopt cloud for your project or looking to migrate your web based application to cloud, your selection could be any of the above however let’s consider following two types:
Let’s consider you have a concept in your mind which you want to try in Cloud. Consider you would need a quad core machine with 8GB memory to run your application initially. Later you can add multiple virtual machine instances of the same application to expand the service to test scalability. Let’s also consider you would need 10 GB file storage space. To make the application database dependent, let’s consider having a requirement of 10GB database as well. We will calculate how much it will cost to run your application initially and when we test it for scalability for a week how much it would have cost. Because PAAS cloud service provides you virtual machine in cloud you just need your application and supported OS and run time modules to let it run, we will take an example of Windows Azure, as cloud service (PAAS) and see what it will cost to us.
Now let’s consider an example cloud service Windows Azure:
So for total cost for your application in a month is as below:
Now if you want to test capacity with multiple instances:
As you can understand from above details that if you are an entrepreneurs and looking for cloud to give you head start or want to move you currently running business to cloud. As of now Windows Azure only provides PASS.
