This kinda old blog post from a16z landed in my inbox today which i 
thought would be worth sharing:

Seems like a pretty good analysis - or at least confirms many things I 
suspected we true about how cloud spend can be outta control.

This quote caught my attention in particular:
A billion dollar private software company told us that their public 
cloud spend amounted to 81% of COR, and that “cloud spend ranging from 
75 to 80% of cost of revenue was common among software companies”.

Anyway...maybe us old hardware and network hackers aren't totally out of 
jobs just yet?
