Comparing cloud subscriptions from providers and

your own subscription in the cloud (BYOS) with SUSE.

Can we even compare the two?

Cloud / Managed Service Providers (CSP/MSP) offer a simple way to book virtual machines and servers with the OS included. A price calculator is available for PAYG use and direct pre-booking/reservations to make the costs of switching to the cloud with the provider more transparent. But does it also make it comparable with other options?

Select performance and software, add a service or two and you’ll be shown the price for the virtual machine and server you want, but once you start getting the monthly invoices, you might get a nasty surprise.

Several factors play a role in this. What needs to be paid for? vCPUs or VMs. What is included in the CSP/MSP offer? What other functions are needed? And how is support managed? (levels 1,2,3)

How flexible am I when it comes to migrating workloads with my choice of CSP/MSP? How can I reduce costs? By how much?

Savings of tens of thousands of euros are not unheard of.
