Cloud consumption is based on a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) model which comes with its ups and downs; the ability to scale resources on-demand and only be charged for the actual resources you use can actually save you money but the unpredictable costs can be unsettling. So it comes as no surprise that one of the biggest fears associated with cloud adoption is “how much will this cost?”.
Before moving your applications to a public cloud or private cloud infrastructure, you need to know what it will cost to run that workload in your target environment. Once workloads have been migrated, you need to ensure that your hosting charges are optimised for the chosen platform.
As an experienced cloud infrastructure provider, CSI can help you to optimise your cloud spending by providing visibility into what’s lying unused, where you are overspending and how you can better streamline your existing and expected cloud expenditure.
CSI’s Cloud Optimisation and Cloud Cost Optimisation Services gather data from your initial architecture to estimate your total cost of ownership (TCO) and components required for the optimal deployment of the workload on the chosen cloud provider’s platform. Once workloads are live, we monitor real-time resource usage and run cost analytics to provide ongoing spend and usage forecasting alongside capacity planning and resource optimisation.
We continually review your platform spend against cost maximisation strategies such as Microsoft Azure Reserved Virtual Machine Instances, Amazon EC2 Spot Instances, Azure Hybrid Benefit or Bring Your Own Licensing (BYOL).
By leveraging these services CSI can work with you to optimise your Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) hosting costs, whilst also reviewing your workload requirements to see if there are options for Platform as a Service (PaaS) or Function as a Service (FaaS) optimisation.
Our cloud migration modelling, cost optimisation and cloud spend efficiency review services will help you address concerns and answer questions such as:
