Cost Optimization & Governance


There is some inherent waste in your cloud spending and customers want to address that. Cloud cost management and optimization are becoming “Significant tasks” in today’s cloud world. All major cloud OEMs understand this and provide their native solutions for cost optimization.

Cloud cost optimization is important because customers want to maximize business benefits by optimizing their cloud spend. Customers want to pay for cloud resources that deliver the most added value for your business. By using the best practices of cloud cost optimization one can reduce cloud waste.

The goal of cloud governance is to enhance data security, manage risk, and enable the smooth operation of cloud systems. Cloud governance ensures that asset deployment, system integration, data security and other aspects of cloud computing are properly planned, considered, and managed. This is highly dynamic, because cloud systems can be created and maintained by different groups in the organization, involve third-party vendors, and can change on a daily basis.

cloud Cloud Governance Principles
Following principles are a good to build your cloud governance framework

done_all Compliance with cloud policy
cloud consumption standards must be consistent with regulations and compliance standards used by the organization and must be in line with industry norms.
done_all Collaboration
There should be clear agreements between owners and users of cloud infrastructure, and other stakeholders in the relevant organizational units, to ensure they make appropriate and mutually beneficial use of cloud resources.
done_all Change management
All changes to a cloud environment must be implemented in a consistent and standardized manner, subject to the appropriate controls.
done_all Dynamic response
Cloud governance should rely on monitoring and cloud automation to dynamically respond and recover from events in the cloud environment.

We also support customers with 3rd party tools which can automatically execute precise instance rightsizing across types, families and regions, using AI-based pattern recognition and ML inference.

Disaster Recovery:

Disaster recovery (DR) is an organization’s method of regaining access to its IT infrastructure, data and applications after events like a natural disaster, cyber attack, or any other business disruptions. DR is one of the critical aspect of business continuity for an organization.

DR as Service (DRaaS) includes enterprise-grade, preconfigured cloud setup, maintenance, and support associated with customer’s DR requirements. The DRaaS effectively moves the burden of maintaining the alternative site by eliminating upfront capital expenses and reducing overall operating expenditures. We have helped many of our customers to move critical business applications on DRaaS model and help reduce the capital and labour-intensive costs of on-premises DR.

Benefits of Disaster Recovery:

Rapid recovery with minimal downtime -
with DRaaS, businesses can continue to operate and restore important resources within hours or even minutes, depending on SLAs.

A cost-efficient solution -
due to economies of scale, DRaaS is able to offer a point of entry for otherwise cost-prohibited organizations to effectively protect their businesses from the ramifications of IT downtime.

Increased flexibility -
traditional considerations, such as infrastructure, power and rent, IT staffing, and licensing, are all rolled into a single service.

Resource optimization -
since DRaaS is a cloud-based solution, usage is elastic, ensuring customers only consume and pay for what they need. This is superior in most cases to more expensive customer-owned/operated DR datacenters since capacity must be paid for upfront “just in case.”

Important aspects of Disaster Recovery plan consists of following

done_all Identification of experts and stakeholders -
Creating a disaster recovery plan is not a one-person job. It involves input from various internal employees and external vendors. A good disaster recovery planning (DRP) team consists of Infrastructure experts with in-depth knowledge of all hardware, software, data, and network connectivity. Cross functional management team including department heads, Human resources and Public Relations department are also to be included. This is required to keep internal & external stakeholders informed.

done_all Take inventory and analyze business impact -
Business impact analysis (BIA) is the foundation of good DRP. In this step, the business is broken down into individual assets, services, and functions. Each asset and service is then evaluated based on how long the company can run without facing financial losses, reputational losses, or regulatory penalties if this asset fails.

done_all Identify the disaster recovery planning metrics -
Once the BIA is done, the business’s IT infrastructure and processes are broken down and quantified in terms of the cost of downtime and criticality. We can create formal and tangible goals of recovery for each function of the business.

a) Determine the recovery time objective (RTO): This is the amount of time a particular service can be offline without a significant business impact.

b) Determine the recovery point objective (RPO): When we talk about addressing vulnerabilities during disasters, we are usually talking about security changes or data backup. The best way to prevent data loss would be to back up critical information into cloud. These metrics do not depend on just business impact alone. Industry regulations need to be taken into account too - specifically for Banking and hospitals.

done_all Decide on the type of disaster recovery plan -
All businesses cannot use a one-size-fits-all disaster recovery plan template. Based on the results of the previous steps and the DRP budget, we help customers to prepare DRP. The plan involvs developing either Cold/Hot/Warm site. Cloud-based DRP involves backing up critical assets or even the entire primary setup with a cloud provider. This type of planning requires extensive coordination with the cloud managers in terms of security, testing, and meeting the RTO and RPO goals. It is best to pick a cloud provider that allows you to pick the location of the physical and virtual servers.

done_all Test the disaster recovery plan -
A good DRP is defined by how well-tested it is. Considering the magnitude of this operation, this can be tricky and time-consuming. It might also be an expensive affair, so make sure to include this while budgeting for your DRP efforts.
Like every other testing activity, DRP testing must be carried out at regular, scheduled intervals. Keep in mind that all of these tests need to be carried out in every testing cycle. Different tests can be carried out at different points of time in the cycle.

Cloud Migration:

With the increasing benefits of using the cloud, more and more organizations are migrating over their workloads. The key driver for this migration is the adoption of technology across every business vertical. With technology adoption, the investment in resources increases significantly.

Cloud migration is the process of moving all digital resources to the cloud from either on-premise deployments or from another cloud. Formulating a robust cloud migration strategy is the first step toward migration. A cloud migration strategy is essential for both companies moving their legacy systems to the cloud for the first time and existing cloud users looking to optimize their investment.
