Common CloudCost Optimization Challenges
Today enterprise needs to monitor resources spread across hybrid, multi-cloud environments. This requires monitoring multiple reports and dashboards to track resource consumption and costs. When managed poorly, cloud spending will be unsteady and exceed the planned budget. Here are the top reasons for your AWS cost increase,
Limited Cloud Cost Visibility
Lack of unified visibility makes it challenging to correlate data, identify unused environments, control virtual sprawl, and analyze cloud spending.
Lack of Predictability
As teams have limited means for unified cloud cost analysis, they are unable to predict trends and patterns or plan for any spikes in usage.
Lack of Accurate Insights
While organizations can view their overall costs and consumption, they still need to have a breakdown of their cloud costs. This prevents them from taking necessary actions to improve cloud cost efficiency.
Lack of awareness
Teams need to keep up with the AWS services and offerings. AWS keeps introducing new updates that could help in saving costs. For example, the GP3 version of EBS volumes costs 20% less than the GP2 version. Many customers still use GP2.
