Excellent points in this article. Additional differences that "cloud" comparisons of vendor offerrings are some clouds include performance monitoring, security monitoring, patching and enhanced help desk services. Federal government community clouds have to be independently audited for security compliance by Fedramp.

re: Why Cloud Pricing Comparisons Are So Hard
Really a great article show how difficult it is to compare cloud offers! If you need to compare cloud providers try www.cloudorado.com - a service which we created to help with it.
