Can you help me with my capacity planning?
I would like to scale a web application to the Cloud and wanted to know if anyone had any experience calculating costs and could tell me how I would go about that. I have NO experience with cloud services at all.
Currently my production environment consists of two web servers and one database server.
If the application continues on a linear growth path, eventually, I want to scale to the cloud to avoid any more long term commitments to extra hardware.
I want to be able to create a similar environment I have now as a baseline. Have this as my fixed cost that I will always have.
I also want to calculate my variable costs that will increase with more users or bandwidth.
