Cloud Optimization

Creating the most value from the Cloud is about balancing performance, capacity and costs. While it may seem simple, in reality, optimization requires an experienced approach to matching capacity to demand, advanced understanding of pricing plans and programs, the ability to identify resource waste and an array of tools, services and applications to make it all possible.

Cloud Migration

When you move workloads to the cloud you empower innovation and create the opportunity for significant value. In order to capture this value, leveraging best practices along with proven processes and procedures are critical to avoid missteps. Additionally, make security a top priority. Migrating the right way will set your organization up for success and allow ever increasing repeatability, predictability and time-to-value.

Amazon EC2 for
Windows Server

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) provides on-demand, scalable computing capacity in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. Using Amazon EC2 reduces hardware costs so you can develop and deploy applications faster. You can use Amazon EC2 to launch as many or as few virtual servers as you need, configure security and networking, and manage storage. You can add capacity (scale up) to handle compute-heavy tasks, such as monthly or yearly processes, or spikes in website traffic. When usage decreases, you can reduce capacity (scale down) again.

Cost Optimization

Issue: Small AWS deployment with little management oversight and a lack of cloud skills internal to the organization moving from traditional infrastructure to SaaS and cloud based solutions.

 

What we did

  1. AWS Audit
  2. Cost Optimization Review
  3. Ongoing Monitoring

 

Result:

  • Eliminated unused storage volumes and the old application server no longer in use, the charges for AWS resulted in a savings of 51% per month.
  • We’ll continue to monitor AWS billing and finance to ensure maintenance of savings and identify other future changes.
