Cloud optimization: know your rights, grab the opportunities
Mindbox defines three dimensions that help design and control cloud optimization road to maturity: commercial, architectural and technological, and operational.
Together with our clients, we establish a common front in order to implement the cloud optimization process. Our team represents a neutral and agnostic role in the cloud market landscape. We know how to challenge – in a positive sense – both clients organization and vendors, in order to help provide an optimized cloud environment, regarding cost, effectiveness, strategic flexibility and security.
The commercial dimension of cloud usage optimization is the most evident. There are multiple purchase model options depending on usage profile and growth plans. They should be updated regularly regarding changes in business context and conditions.
In the first step we help organizations to learn how to use effectively:
- ordered services,
- reserved instances, and
- savings plans.
Committed usage and volume discount should be monitored.
A big potential of savings represents the active attitude toward spot instances. You may choose the time spans for processing of batch-type data. Providers offer significant discounts reaching up to 90% of the basic price. It should be a primary option for all “batch type” processing. However, in many cases companies adopt spot instances based architecture enabling them to serve even mission critical operations with high-profile requirements .
