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.
