About PlanForCloud

PlanForCloud enables sophisticated modeling of the components of cloud deployments, including servers, storage, databases and data transfers, as well as usage scenarios that incorporate growth, seasonality and other variability in the consumption of cloud resources. Deployments are run through a simulation to create a detailed 3-year cost report that enables you to accurately forecast costs for new deployments or budget for future usage. You do not need to be on the cloud and we do not require any cloud credentials.

We are a part of RightScale, the leader in cloud management.

Rory Fitzpatrick - Software Engineer
Rory Fitzpatrick
As the team's dedicated Front End Engineer, Rory prides himself in knowing the Dark Arts of JavaScript. In reality his (relatively) old age just means he has more patience than anyone else. Escaping a life in civil service early on in his career, Rory worked in several established startups before joining one of Edinburgh's top digital agencies. After discovering that a) .NET is actually kinda awesome and b) clients are always wrong right, he joined PlanForCloud to teach them the difference between == and === in JavaScript (see above) and conduct brutal code reviews where no erroneous white space is left untouched. He drinks strong coffee in excess but knows how to enjoy a good single malt.
