Optimise your costs in the cloud with Azure.

The public cloud is a consumption-based model where you only pay for the resources you need when you need them. With the appropriate management and analysis, many organisations achieve cost savings over a traditional IT infrastructure with intensive capital investment cycles.

As you modernise your environment with Azure, the cost of your legacy infrastructure should reduce, allowing an improved distribution of budgets to higher-value services. With Azure, we can adopt three common strategies, helping you to avoid unpleasant surprises and project future cloud costs. 

  • Implement Azure cost management tools: Create Azure budgets – global or scoped spending limits, use forecasts, and create alerts on certain thresholds
  • Use workloads appropriately: Ensure virtual machines are right-sized and the correct storage tiers are used. Use automation to stop or deallocate VMs
  • Leverage cost-saving opportunities: Reserved Instances provide cheaper VMs and services for longer commitments, equating to a 72% discount. Using Hybrid Benefits you can re-use SA licenses with Azure, with a 40-55% discount
