Our company is thinking about switching IT hosting strategy for the long run. We have been playing with some EC2 instances and we are interested in looking at a possible switch over cloud computing. Our only option is not amazon but is definitely one of the famous.
I know that there are different instance options in terms of pricing. I am wondering if there is a rule of thumb (bulkpark figure) for pricing per hour for an entire instance. This means: Including the instance price, a fair amount of BW, EBS pricing, I/O and all that good stuff. So We can make a reasonable comparison with the traditional hosting companies. This pricing might depend on the amount of traffic per server and a lot of other variables, but we are looking at an average figure, some servers could be more some others could be less.
Well, I know this might be useful to other people out there that are thinking on the switch over.
