Public cloud costs versus resiliency: stateless applications

Published: Tuesday, 02 August 2022 09:21

A new report from the Uptime Institute quantifies the costs, levels of resiliency, and outage compensation of different stateless cloud application architectures.

To reduce the impact of more frequent and widespread cloud outages, users must architect cloud-native applications that are resilient to the failure of providers’ virtual machines, availability zones and regions. In the event of a service interruption, outage compensation from cloud providers is highly unlikely to cover the cloud costs relative to the application, let alone the business losses.

The ’Public cloud costs versus resiliency: stateless applications’ report quantifies the costs of several common architectures for building resiliency for a stateless cloud application and determines the level of protection and compensation for each application.

Key findings include:
