Explore Ways to Reduce Your Azure Cloud Cost

The cloud holds an enormous amount of potential, but optimizing cloud spend is key to managing costs and minimizing waste. Flexera released a study explaining that 35% of public cloud resources are wasted. So how can you be confident you aren’t paying too much for cloud workloads, and decrease those costs if you are? SoftwareONE’s Cloud Cost Optimization is a unique advisory service that can identify and reduce your Azure cloud waste by right-costing and right-sizing, and help you understand the feasibility of suggested changes, while supporting remediation.

How Do I Maximize my Return on Investment with Cloud Cost Optimization?

SoftwareONE helps IT Strategy and Operations Professionals with right-sizing and right-costing efforts. Right-sizing savings are those that allow cost optimization by changing the technical specifications of the resources running in the cloud environment. Right-costing savings are those that allow cost optimization leveraging commercial licensing constructs. SoftwareONE is an expert in cloud cost optimization, and we’ve helped organizations save an average of 20% on their cloud spend.

Our service includes a feasibility analysis, where we go through a series of detailed questions and answers to understand your business needs -- in order to identify your realistic savings potential. For example, the questions cover the following general areas:

  • Is there a way to reduce compute or application server costs?
  • Is there a way to increase savings on windows server licensing?
  • Is it possible to use the same VM but with a cheaper price?
