Multi-tenant shared container PaaS will deliver a significant advantage when compared with single tenant, dedicated container PaaS.
In single tenant, dedicated container PaaS, significantly more expense is required to run a PaaS environment compared with a multi-tenant, shared application container PaaS.
The proposed PaaS cost evaluation tool compares multi-tenant, shared application container PaaS with single tenant, dedicated container PaaS (i.e. traditional application server deployment in Cloud) across multiple tenant counts and application platform service combinations.
The worksheet incorporates application platform license (or subscription) cost, PaaS Management service cost, infrastructure expense, and IT management overhead.
Across all scenarios, the worksheet calculates cost when application platforms are deployed on Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
