Cloud Cost Optimization

The majority of enterprise workloads are now on the cloud, with a huge amount of data being continuously transferred from on-premises to hybrid and cloud-based infrastructure, and back again. The #1 provider for Platform or Infrastructure as a service is AWS, accounting for more than 30% of the market share, followed by Azure, and Google Cloud. 

Whichever cloud platform you opt for, it’s important to stay on top of your costs, and get a deep understanding of what your cloud expenditure is. Without that visibility, you can experience hikes in your monthly outgoings that are difficult to explain or mitigate. When it comes to AWS for example, the monthly invoice can be dense and complicated, making it tough to read – let alone to drill down to specific data transfer fees and recognize where you can trim the fat or make a difference. 

Here’s where VNT come in. Our cloud experts have built a smart automated solution that can analyse your whole cloud infrastructure, and provide an easy to read report on all connections and data transfer costs, deciphering elements such as NAT gateway fees, Availability Zones, and more. With this information at your fingertips, VNT can also provide smart recommendations that cut serious zeroes off your bottom line, without impacting the cloud service you know and love. 

In this part of the site, our experts wax lyrical about all things cloud, from how to optimize your data center for success, to the cloud trends you should be aware of to keep your business running smoothly.
