Cloud is evolving and growing in every industry for all its benefits. Cost optimization is a way to reduce the total cloud cost by only charging for used services, discarding waste, and using necessary resources for the organization.
The cost-effectiveness of computing services is determined by the features it provides. Cloud has been a cost savior to organizations. Although it is time-consuming, the cloud utilizes the benefits of a hybrid cloud infrastructure from private and public cloud. It keeps the ability to reduce labor demand and maintenance costs.
Let us assume the organization is already on Cloud and look at some best practices to reduce cloud costs.
A Detailed Assessment
The preliminary step to cut short on cloud bills is to conduct a detailed assessment of the software licenses and hardware assets in the form of a Migration Readiness assessment. The evaluation gets into understanding the dependencies of the infrastructure’s applications, databases, hardware, and software assets.
An assessment report can identify the flaws and show the deficiencies in the software licenses or any hardware asset. It also helps in knowing where your application is and your security management posture.
AWS has assessment tools such as Cloudamize and CloudChomp for a better maintained AWS cloud cost.
Run a Cost Optimization Assessment
The cost optimization analyzes whether the workload needs to run on reduced hardware assets or choose a different family of processes. For example, choosing AMD over Intel as your processor can save up to 10% to 15% of the IT costs.
A cloud cost assessment is an activity that might take up to two man-days to be completed. This job is carried out by a team of professionals who analyzes the cloud infrastructure’s workload capacity.
Big-scale organizations like Netflix, Pinterest, Instagram, and MediaMath have taken to Cloud and expanded and upgraded their business to a whole different level. The business expansions are successful specifically for the cost-effectiveness feature of Cloud, without any harm caused to data security or performance.
