Cloud Cost Optimisation

Reduce your cloud consumption by 30% with automated, actionable cost saving recommendations.

Cloud Cost Optimisation

The promise of the public cloud is one of an evergreen, higher performance environment that would cost less than a traditional on-premises environment. For many customers the cloud has been an expensive endeavour that hasn’t increased the performance of their environment.

IA-Cloud allows you to align your true usage to cost, allowing you to reduce your costs overall whilst still increasing performance where it is most needed.

Reserved Instances

Reserved instances allow you reserve capacity for one or three years which can reduce your cloud bill by over 30%. However, most organisations don’t use reserved instances at all. IA-Cloud highlights where it would be sensible to use reserved instances to help reduce the cost of your environment.

Orphaned Resources

When virtual machines are removed in Azure the associated resources are not automatically cleaned up, and although you’re no longer using them, they’re still costing you money.  If you’ve been using the public cloud for a while these orphaned resources quickly add up. IA-Cloud’s cost optimisation dashboard highlights these orphaned resources, allowing you to take action to cut your costs.

Performance Optimisation

Making sure your environment is kept up with best practices and performant is as important is reducing cost. IA-Cloud provides actionable insights into performance issues due to low capacity, enabling you to increase your user experience whilst also optimising cost.  IA-Cloud will even tell you if a new resource version has been made available that would be a better fit for your workloads.
