Are Skyrocketing Cloud Bills Eating Your Profits?
The cloud brought us unlimited scale and absolved us of the need to manage the physical aspects of infrastructure. With unlimited scale comes the potential for “capital expenditure like” bills. It’s hard to justify the move to cloud when some bills are starting to look as bad as some of the equipment purchases that your organization used to make.
Get Back in Control
Incorrectly attributed to Peter Drucker, the adage “what gets measured gets managed” is critical. By monitoring usage over a period of time, we can quickly understand the steps needed to balance cost, speed, and quality. Applications tend to scale up expertly but scaling down is also critical in maintaining a sustainable cloud cost.
Reduced Cloud Costs are Possible
While it may be hard to believe, it is possible to find anomalies in a cloud environment that can lead to extreme bills. We’ll uncover simple issues like orphaned compute instances on up to harder to spot costs like data movement across billable boundaries. Tapping into cloud experts who are also billing savvy is the combination of engineer + analysis needed to make considerable improvements to cloud cost management.
