When migrating from on-prem databases to the cloud, did you see your overall costs go up or down?
My experience has been mixed based on current infrastructure, budget, staffing, etc. Generally, it was quicker and cheaper to stand up a cloud-based solution to get started on a new project. Over time, the decision where to build the production environment was put back to the business since we would cross charge to them. Like anything new, cloud environments need to be managed closely so that costs don’t run away from the data and security controls you naturally have with your on-prem environments. Happy to expand more if you wish to discuss.
