ITRS Group claims that businesses can cut their cloud spend by 35% with its new Cloud Cost Optimisation (CCO) solution.
Housed on ITRS’ Capacity Planner platform, the solution undertakes a thorough analysis of cloud usage to identify the size of the instance that should be running (right-sizing) and the best way to buy it or run it, including where it can be shut down altogether (right-buying). This process can be implemented at the point of migration as well as on an ongoing basis throughout the lifespan of a firm’s cloud estate.
CCO’s predictive analytics capabilities also allow firms to model future scenarios on the cloud estate in order to anticipate and plan for potential capacity bottlenecks or resource constraints.
Head of Product Management, Peter Duffy, said: “The cloud represents enormous potential for businesses to reduce IT spend and improve scalability and flexibility – but it has to be used correctly. Too many businesses are continuing to treat it as they would their on-premise IT. Our CCO solution enables businesses to understand their entire cloud estate on a granular level, helping them to identify key areas for improved efficiency and reduced spend. The transparent, data-backed way we present our recommendations for optimisation means businesses don’t have to take our word for it – they can see the calculations right there on the page.”
