Much of the appeal for enterprise IT managers to introduce cloud computing within their organizations is to take advantage of the efficiencies that automation and self-service can bring to infrastructure. But the real economics of private cloud can be surprising.

Joshua McKenty, one of the founders of OpenStack, will discuss some of the surprising realities of cloud costs, including: 

  • How little power efficiency REALLY matters (and where it does)  
  • How much your cloud costs are dominated by reference architecture 
  • How few servers you need to be running to save money by building a private cloud
