Poster: Cloud Price Negotiations

Some time ago, I was asked to work with a Cloud Provider to establish a budget for a potential project. I was unable to set a project budget because there was no way of capping the cost and meeting a budget.

This is how the conversations with the sales representative went when discussing “How much will the cloud cost ?”

PS. We implemented it on the Private Cloud, because we could control the costs there.
