AWS and Azure resource and cost optimization

Be free to save more money.

Is your cloud spend through the roof? It happens. Let’s get it under control by identifying mismanaged resources, eliminating waste, reserving capacity for higher discounts, and sizing computing services to scale. That means the right size infrastructure for the right price.

Are you realizing the full potential cost benefits of your cloud strategy?

Why did your company move to the cloud in the first place? Let us guess: to “optimize costs” or get "elastic pricing"—which is just a fancy way of saying to save money.

But did you move your workload to the cloud and then keep using the same strategy you were for your physical infrastructure? Common—and expensive—mistake.

nOps can help you save more by centralizing cloud accounts into a consolidated billing model, providing instant and continuous visibility to change requests and delta to your infrastructure that cause cost, and giving you the best root cause analysis capabilities available anywhere. That means better oversight and more control of your cloud spend. Pretty cool, eh?
