The cloud economic model is attractive: pay as you go, with no or minimal upfront infrastructure costs compared to traditional server or data center models. Recurring operating costs fit better with a monthly or quarterly budget model.
There’s a big issue with this model: Cloud providers are in the game to maximize their revenues, not yours. So how can you get the most out of your cloud for the least money!
We’re here to help! We offer free, open source tools to help manage your cloud operations for best service availability at the least cost to you. If you’d like to work with us to optimize your cloud investments, our services team can help with a wide array of options to analyze and optimize your cloud environments.
