Cloud Cost Optimisation

Do you know you can reduce your cloud spend by an average of 35% by optimising your cloud resources?

Analyse your IT estate and optimise your cloud cost in 3 steps

Right-size

Identify the sizes of the cloud instances needed for each application workload. Using highly granular data capture, you can determine optimum configuration of burstable or non-burstable instances, and identify idle times and workload periodicity. Once you understand the capacity of your hybrid estate, you can bring work back from the cloud if your on-prem capacity allows it.

Right-buy

Identify where each cloud instance needs to run and pinpoint the best way to buy it, depending on how long it's going to run for and how long before it shuts down if it's idle. By gathering this information and continually analysing the cloud provider billing engines, you can start optimising your cloud usage for cost and performance.

Optimise

Improve business processes and manage your cost and performance across hybrid IT, on-prem and multi-cloud, all in a single tool with consistent reporting. By using right-size at an application level to correlate your business demand with your cloud service, you can plan for growth, predict upcoming costs and find saving opportunities with advanced predictive analytics and what-if scenario modelling. 

10 facts about cloud adoption

Public cloud is a $230 billion industry, which is growing at 22% per year. Cloud providers offer some data and tools to help manage costs, but 35% of cloud spend is still wasted due to complexity.

Concerns

The job has changed to encompass cloud.

Managing a hybrid IT environment with many different tools and no single source of truth is a challenge.

Growing costs with little visibility into the reasons for increased costs.

The organisation is applying pressure to move to the cloud, but needs to demonstrate how and when to move and if it really is the most cost effective approach.

Concerns

Cloud application costs are spiralling.

Managing a combination of on-premise and in-cloud applications is increasingly complex.

On-premise applications are expected to move to the cloud but a "like for like migration" is likely going to lead to increased costs.

Unable to forecast costs based on increased demand and likely cloud utilisation. What is the most cost effective use of cloud services?

ITRS Solutions

  • Right-sizing and right-buying per application.
  • Detailed analytics on application resource profile to determine optimum cloud configuration and savings opportunities.
  • Correlation of volumes with cloud resources to determine how cloud service usage and cost will increase as demand increases.
  • Visibility into the "transactional" cost of using the cloud by determining the cross-service cost servicing demand.
