5 Ways To Keep Cloud Cost Under Control

Cloud Technology is all about convenience, security, speed, agility, and, most importantly, Cost Savings. Cloud Cost overspend is the harsh reality of this growing technology. Enterprises have started experiencing the heat of cloud costs.

Cloud technology is supposed to reduce the overall IT infrastructure cost. On the contrary to this, many enterprises complained to have higher cloud clots bill resulting in overspend. Here are some burning facts of this harsh reality:

Adobe software development team in the year of 2018 incurred $80,000 a day in unscheduled cloud operations, which finally exceeded the entire cloud cost bill to half a million dollars.

Adobe is not alone in this category. There are several enterprises surprised because of the unforeseen cloud bills. As per a report, almost 60% of enterprises outspend their dedicated or planned cloud budgets. 

1 – Estimate Before You Begin Cloud Journey (Use Cloud Cost Calculators)

2 – Choose The Right Region

The operations costs of the cloud vendors differ from region to region. Depending on the geographical region, most of the enterprises price their services. For instance, it might be cheaper to store your rarely accessed data in the remote storage regions. Moreover, you would wish to have your frequently accessed data in the same region where VM instances are available to mitigate the inter-region costs. Selecting the right region is highly essential, yet only a small number of enterprises pay attention to this aspect.

3 – Avoid Cloud Wastage
