The Great Public vs Private Cloud Debate 2017

In the great debate, we evaluate and compare the TCO of a range of private cloud deployment models, and reveal the 'goldilocks zone' where private cloud can beat public cloud -- albeit with a substantial level of risk. Our analysis shows managed, hosted, self-managed, on-premises and open-source options are all in the running to be leaders in TCO depending on circumstance. We provide advice to buyers and sellers looking to understand cloud value based on this analysis.
