a federal government agency

The analysis is for your client, a federal government agency, as part of its Microsoft Azure cloud pilot. The Cloud Cost Analysis is the second of a two-part assignment for your client’s CIO. Using the Azure Pricing Calculator, you will calculate the annual cost to establish a cloud system.

The Cloud Cost Analysis will include three deliverables:

Deliverable 1 will include a share link to calculations displaying the steps you took to calculate the annual cost using the free Azure pricing calculator tool.

Deliverable 2 will be two spreadsheets showing the cost for a pay-as-you-go option and a one-year option payment.

Deliverable 3 will be a two-paragraph memo which compares the two and provides your recommendation.
