They are fools. I will build you 1k servers with 100g to AWS in 75 days.

Your $1M estimate is 3X too high at 2c/GB.

In two hours I'll save you $25k per month. In 6 months $300k/month.

Either you are growing and should be investing in cost efficiency or you run a staid lifestyle business. Which is fine, but if you aren't growing, get off expensive cloud.




You've a good logic in this, but you don't have enough details about us to judge it properly. The gain would be much smaller than you think and we would lose a lot of freedom, which would slow us down.


I don't think it's worth continuing to argue. It's obvious you've done your research and built a real system that works, you don't have to continuously defend people who claim you can save 50% but don't understand why running an entire system means more than just miniizing the hardware cost.
