Cloud will NOT eat the tech industry, Michael Dell declares


Re: Some Truth

I worked on an AWS project for a startup and the monthly bill from Amazon was around $5000!!!

Multiply that by 12 and you understand that Dell is right...

With that said I hate Dell crappy boxes and this name always reminds me the PC capacitors disaster of the last decade when Dell knowingly built PCs with faulty capacitors and I was one of their victims.. Since then I never bought a Dell and I will never buy one in the future.

I am currently working on Azure projects but for my personal computing needs (HPC) I have a dual-socket Xeon sporting 22 cores each... That's 44 cores/ 88 threads and the cost was $16K - Nothing comparable to what I would be paying on AWS per year!!!
