Understand Consumption Patterns
Are your servers kept on 24/7? Do you use scaling services? How much of your environment is IaaS, PaaS, or SaaS?
Reduce your Cloud Spend
Optimal Use of Consumption M
Cloud Providers offer multiple consumption models: Pay-As-You-Go, Reserved Instances, Unlimited Usage etc. For constant or increasing workloads, there are large savings to be had by utilizing consumption models other than Pay-As-You-Go. However, identifying which workloads would benefit from this, and exactly which type of model and duration to choose is non-trivial. That is where our AI comes in. We typically see savings of 30-50% for Virtual Machine workloads, and up to 80% in Unlimited Usage services like Bandwidth.
Optimal Licensing of Services
Even though easy license management is seen as one of the benefits of Cloud, it comes at a (very) steep price. One way to save large amounts is to re-use existing on-premises licenses in the cloud. Either through Bring-Your-Own-License programs or options like Microsoft Azure Hybrid Benefits. H

Cloud costs vary between regions. For some services like Virtual Machines, the price difference can be 35% or more. If your services are not latency-sensitive, and your data policy allows it, placing commodity workloads in cheaper regions can lead to large savings.
Many cloud services exist in different generations. Typically newer generations are 10-20% cheaper than the generation they replace. Making sure services are upgraded to the newest version is a good way to save. However, with thousands of services to track, varying in availability between dozens of regions, this is a task best left to AI.
