Session 2: IaaS 101 - AWS v Azure

Thursday, June 14 | 1:00 -1:30 PM EDT


Visit AWS or Azure’s website and it’s a pretty picture.  Swipe a credit card and you’re off and running! Build up some demand, reserve some capacity and you’ll save even more money. This session strips away the hype and examines the IaaS market and pricing for AWS and Azure, including reserved instances, enterprise discount options and potential areas of risk.

Session highlights include:


  • A look at where AWS and Azure’s offerings and pricing are nearly identical
  • How to take advantage of reserved instance pricing with mature modeling
  • How to map current workloads to corresponding cloud instances 
  • Software licensing, alternatives to proprietary tools, and accounting for legacy assets after moving to the cloud




This series consists of four 30-minute sessions which start at 1PM EDT and are scheduled every two weeks beginning Thursday May 31st. Each session will have approximately 25 minutes of content, followed by a five-minute Q&A.
