When designing infrastructure systems, whether creating new applications or deploying existing software, it’s crucial to manage cost. Costs come from a variety of sources, and every approach to delivering infrastructure has its own tradeoffs and complexities. Cloud infrastructure systems create a whole new range of variables in these complex equations. 

In addition, no two clouds are the same! Some bundle components while others offer more granular purchasing. Some bill in different time increments, and many offer a variety of payment structures each with differing economic ramifications.  How do you figure out what each costs and make a choice?

You might need to ask your butcher (assuming you have one) or even a store meat manager to order in a tri-tip roast Two pounds is a good size, but if you come across a larger one, by all means grab it as the extra meat makes amazing sandwiches The trick is to carve the tri-tip against the grain, which can change directions in this cut
