Elephant in the Room: What's the TCO for an OpenStack Cloud?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Starting with building a total cost of ownership (TCO) of an OpenStack cloud, we examine the strategic knobs you have available to tune to provide the best solution for your organization. We will introduce the TCO model, as well as using standard financial accounting practices to build a basis for calculating the value your OpenStack cloud provides your organization.

The presentation will provide a basic overview of the accounting principles required, but to get the most out of the model, it helps if you share and talk through with your finance team.
