Fixed vs pay-as-you-go: what’s the right cloud pricing choice?

Whether you are a new business or an existing company, achieving business growth now depends on improving system reliability, supporting hybrid work models, modernising work environments, staying secure and adapting to changing market requirements.

Gartner forecasts that this demand will continue to grow, with end-user spending on public cloud services estimated to grow 21.7% in 2022 to reach aggregate volumes of $482 billion from $396 billion last year.
