While clouds are the natural go-to choice for an early-stage startup, staying 100% in clouds with substantial infrastructure may sink a company as it and its infrastructure grow.
This study shows that the monthly infrastructure cost of clouds would be more than 10 times higher than a collocation with self-designed infrastructure. Not to mention the taylor-made possibilities.
Your CTOs and tech leaders must provide clever ways to use public clouds, avoiding their typical lock-ins, so you can leave [and reduce vast amounts of infrastructure costs] whenever you may need.
Benefits of public clouds are flexibility and agility, not costs.
