As companies move from partial to complete cloud storage they are finding surprising costs that they did not expect. While the functional cost of actual storage is low, it is the cost of “transactions,” adding, removing or accessing data that is causing some pain. Is your company thinking of going fully into the cloud? Has your company budgeted for transaction fees?

    As far as I know, yes. Some of the groups are completely on cloud now and some others are planning the same. However, we have very less visibility to budget thing.

    I think some of the other aspects that companies usually look for also include 'security' as an important factor. 

    In general, Banking and Finance institutions pay special attention to "security" when it comes to deciding about cloud I believe.

    I have seen some of our projects migrated on cloud but we did not experience any problems as such. However, manual migration does appear to be painful and prone to accidents.
