Cloud Pricing – AWS & Google Cloud (7/07/2020)

Live Optics Agent

Introduction:

  • Cloud pricing tool takes the configuration of the on-Prem VMs assessed by LO (Guest VMs and Physical Serves with no hypervisors) and queries the price of hosting the assessed VMs on the 3 main cloud providers (AWS, Azure and Google cloud)
  • Pricing Is provided for 3 Tiers (On- Demand, 1 year and 3 years Pricing)
  • For the 1st release we are only supporting pricing for AWS
  • Pricing is exported in the same Optical Prime excel sheet

 

Entry Point:

Enter your Optical Prime project and select export

Access your Optical Prime project and select "Export" on the top right menu

 Save the excel to your computer.

 

Pricing Factors:

  • We have some fixed factors that we use while Pricing nodes, these factors are listed below:
    • Pricing is based on the below configuration parameters for each of the assessed nodes:
      • Number of CPUs
      • Memory
      • Operating System
      • Storage
    • Pricing is based on the below fixed Assumptions from the provider side:
      • VMs are running 24/7 For the whole month
      • Currency: USD
      • Region: US East (N.Virginia)
      • Monthly Aggregation of the price
    • Pricing is done for Guest VMs
    • We are pricing based on SSD storage option
    • Burstable instances are excluded from our pricing model
    • Pricing include the base license price for the OS
    • Pricing is for shared tenancy
    • Currently IOPS & Clock speed are not considered in pricing (will be added in upcoming phases)

AWS Matched instance

Name of the instance to which the on Prem configuration matched

AWS Notes

An annex to the previous field indicating how your pricing was Matched for an AWS configuration and the instance name for direct and indirect match

GCP On- Demand Pricing

GCP on demand price in USD (Monthly aggregated)

GCP 1year Price

GCP 1 year contract price in USD (Monthly aggregated)

GCP 3 years Price

GCP 3 years contract price in USD (Monthly aggregated)

GCP Config Match

Boolean flag indicating whether the on prem configuration was exactly matched with an AWS configuration or no

GCP Matched instance

Name of the instance to which the on Prem configuration matched

GCP Notes

An annex to the previous field indicating how your pricing was matched for a GCP configuration and the instance name for direct and indirect match

Azure On- Demand Pricing

Azure on demand price in USD (Monthly aggregated)

Azure 1year Price

Azure Config Match

Boolean flag indicating whether the on prem configuration was exactly matched with an AWS configuration or no

Azure Matched instance

Name of the instance to which the on Prem configuration matched

Azure Notes

An annex to the previous field indicating how your pricing was Matched for an Azure configuration and the instance name for direct and indirect match

 

Special notes:

  • AWS :
    • We display the pricing of convertible reserved instances for 1 year & 3 years pricing
    • Storage: we use general purpose SSD storage (GP2)
  • Google Cloud:
    • Storage: Zonal SSD Persistent disk
  • Azure
    • We are not showing pricing for low power instances A0àA7
    • We are not showing the pricing of instances A8à A11 as they will be retired by 3/2021
    • We are not showing the pricing of promo SKUs
    • Storage : We are using SSD storage option

 

 

Smart Approximation Logic:

  • Smart approximation is the logic we use for the display of pricing in case no direct match was found where we will Proceed with the below :
    • Round up for VCPU
    • Round down for VMEM if difference is <=10% of the original value with a ceiling of 6GB if the difference is greater we proceed with a round up.
  • Results for smart approximation displayed as below:

 

Price Matched Field

Notes field

True

Matched against instance name =X

False

No direct match found. Used nearest Largest configuration., with instance name = X, VCPU=Y ,VMEM=Z

False

Configuration Not available
