The Truth About Cloud Services
PULLING THE CURTAIN BACK ON THE BIG 3
MYTH: IaaS from the Big 3 always saves you money
TRUTH: Check your invoice! Their variable billing and add-ons cost much more than you anticipated. Flex Cloud is a flat-rate service, with no additional costs associated with processor use time or data transfer. Our guaranteed pricing is good for the life of your contract, making it easy to budget into your OpEx.
MYTH: The Big 3 offer the fastest processing power available, all the time
TRUTH: Not so fast! Their processing speeds depend on which tier of service you have. You must contract for higher, more expensive tiers to get the speed you need. Flex Cloud has only one tier with the fastest SSD drives in the industry, with processing speed in single-digit milliseconds and very low latency on the AT&T network. You never pay more for powerful performance!
MYTH: All IaaS platforms operate the same.
TRUTH: The Big 3 lock you into their proprietary products that are difficult to migrate onto other providers. Flex Cloud is product-agnostic. We will build a private or public cloud for your organization that you can take anywhere if the need arises, without hassles.
MYTH: Your cloud, your rules, your control.
TRUTH: With the Big 3, you typically must conform your applications to their tiers, requiring you to use (and pay for) certain tiers to run your software. Flex Cloud’s IaaS enables you to run your cloud your way, with the flexibility you desire based on your organization’s needs.
