Cloud Price Index: Private Cloud Edition Q3 2017

The market for private cloud today is value-driven, and buyers have their own reasons beyond price for choosing which cloud model, be it managed or self-operating, best suits their need. However, cost is still a major concern and the breadth of options in the market is making buyers shrewder in their purchasing decisions. We find some providers and vendors are price matching in a bid to show cost-competitiveness while others are bundling value, specifically security and monitoring, in a bid to show a differentiated proposition.
