Cloud Cost Optimisation & Spend Management

Manage your cloud financials as you scale with Ioxil Cloud cost optimisation and cost management services.

Managed Cloud Services

Cloud cost management can be challenging, especially where control of cloud accounts is decentralised, resulting in a waste of money. We specialise in cloud cost management and optimisation, using well architected framework we can help organisations to save up to 75% on their Cloud cost enabling them to spend more on innovation & business enhancement.

Cloud Pricing Model

Cloud cost management requires a full understanding of the pricing model offered by the Cloud provider. Major cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure have different pricing models suitable for different types of loads to run on Cloud. e.g.

  • Reserved instance cost significantly lower than on-demand
  • Spot Instances offer to save up to 90%
  • Serverless resources usage charged per second
  • Different cost for data storage, ingress and egress

Cost-Effective Resources

Using the appropriate  Cloud services, resources, and configurations for your workloads is vital to cost savings. We can help your business to save through appropriate resource provisioning, right-sizing, intelligent purchasing options, optimal geographic selection, managed services, and optimal data transfer strategy.

Elastic & Scalable Resource (Matching Supply with Demand )

The golden rule of thumb is to pay for only what you need. The cloud resources are elastic and scalable, so should be your infrastructure to ensure that you provision only to pay for what is demand of your business. To ensure the cloud cost reduction, Ioxil experts can help in capacity planning and provisioning automation to meet the minimum and maximum infrastructure requirements, enabling you to have a highly scalable infrastructure to run your business without a huge Cloud spend.

Measure, Monitor, Optimise

The best optimization strategy is to use measure, monitor, and improve, approach to optimise cloud costs over time. We can measure and monitor your users and applications, and combine the data from Cloud platform monitoring, to perform a gap analysis that tells how closely aligned your system utilisation is to your requirements. We can minimise the utilisation gap ensuring that your systems are cost effective.
