Cloud Economics in the Time of Covid-19: What Customers Need to Know

Join us for a live video Q&A to discuss how cloud providers are responding to requests for financial relief from customers hard-hit by the Covid-19 crisis. We'll discuss how to make sure you're not wasting cloud capacity, how to talk to cloud providers about financial flexibility, and evaluating how to buy cloud capacity up-front.
