Cloud optimization is an essential part of every cloud transformation story. It describes the process of intelligence-driven selection and assignment of the right resources to a specific workload or application. A business investing in the process of cloud transformation achieves optimal efficiency when workload performance, compliance, and cost are correctly and continually balanced against the best-fit infrastructure on a real-time basis. On the other hand, some businesses leave their apps running at full level and only bother to tune these apps for performance when they’ve failed to meet SLAs, or as a response to downtime. Legacy businesses also tend to overprovision, just in order to pre-buy peace of mind.
Cloud optimization is definitely not just a discretionary expense, especially when a serious business disruption occurs—it allows CloudOps and DevOps teams to properly control resource allocation and application performance. It helps your business optimize your cloud value-per-spend while delivering best-case app performance. When this happens, the CFO and Finance department get what they want, and your management team can be confident that they don’t need to overspend to get the job done. For this, a clear awareness of cloud costs vs. cloud value is one way to start. Establishing a practical cloud governance structure is what follows next, and implementing the right strategies, technologies, and practices closes the loop.
