Re: Lock-in by the back door
What would you describe as significant quantities of data?
What level of costs would you say are prohibitive?
Let's say I've got 1PB of data (I like round numbers!). I could get myself 13 AWS Snowballs (or Azure equiv) at a cost of slightly under USD 4000 with a data transfer cost of a touch under USD 32K. So about USD 36K to get my 1 PB of data out of cloud. For a government or enterprise that is not what I would call prohibitive?
