Comparison with private sector pricing
Comparing cloud.gov’s pricing model to private Platform as a Service (PaaS) providers is difficult, as it is not an apples to apples comparison. A price comparison would include the up-front and opportunity costs of procurement, operations, security, and compliance teams in obtaining a solution. These costs can be difficult to isolate, especially if they are covered by various working capital funds in your agency.
cloud.gov avoids many of these costs and delivers a proven, ready-to-ATO infrastructure to your teams’ hands on day one via an Inter-agency Agreement (IAA). cloud.gov’s resource usage is already priced competitively with the private market, and is the superior option in reducing compliance friction to access the cloud.
