    PaaS TCO Comparison Tool

    While the cloud may provide a low-cost barrier to entry, the amount spent over time may reach in-house levels. This tool will help you calculate and compare in-house costs to cloud service costs.

    The decision to adopt a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution should be driven by agility and rapid deployment rather than cost, as these are the primary benefits of developing in the cloud.

    While the cloud may provide a low-cost barrier to entry, the amount spent over time may reach in-house levels. This tool will help you calculate and compare in-house costs to cloud service costs by looking at:

    • Hardware costs
    • Software licensing costs
    • Facilities costs
    • Cloud service costs

    Use this tool to compare TCO for on-site application development to cloud-based development platforms.
