Completely agree. Ops cost is often ignored in favour of ability to move between cloud vendors or a similar issue. Problem is, almost nobody ever really does move. Refactoring code is a luxury. Do your research, pick a vendor, and take the rough with the smooth. There will always be people who will tell you “You should have done it this way”. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.
