The Cloud Pricing module allows to analyze and compare the cost of your internal infrastructure with the offer of the main providers in the public cloud (Amazon, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure and OVH). It allows to understand the real costs of moving VMs from your private cloud to infrastructures in the public cloud or the moving specific elements to the public cloud (Hybrid cloud).
The operation of the module Cloud Pricing is quite simple, it will match the computing and storage capabilities allocated to VMs with the services offered by main cloud providers.
The Cloud Pricing module automatically set the cost of the infrastructure based on the allocated CPU, RAM, and storage of each VM included in DC Scope (according to the filters). The total cost presented by DC Scope is the sum of the costs of all virtual machines.
Additional options as the region and the billing type can be settled up at the bottom of the page. These settings may modify the costs associated to the analysis.
Please bear in mind that the estimates provided by DC Scope should not be considered as official quotes. Additionally, it is important to notice that some costs as human resources, network traffic, etc. might not have been taken into account for the analysis.
Cloud Pricing Recommendations
The Cloud Priging module can also include the Recommendations provided by DC Scope. With this option you will be able to see the cost of the VMs in the Public Cloud if you follow the recommendations for:
- Resizing of vCPU and vRAM in the VMs.
- Turning off the VMs IDLE.
To active this feature, you need to click on the buton “enable recommendations” at the top of the page. For VMs whose Recommendations is to “turn off or delete the virtual machine if not used”, the cost provided by the Cloud Pricing with Recommendations is only the cost associated to the storage needs of the VM as the Compute cost of a VM OFF is 0
