Multi-cloud governance solution provider, cloudtamer.io announced its newest feature to optimize customers’ cloud spend. The new offering scans customer’s cloud environments to identify abandoned and underutilized resources. Then it provides a “Saving Opportunities” report in its dashboard. It also offers on-demand or scheduled scans for customers. Thus, the new feature allows customers to evaluate potential cloud savings.
Rightsizing and decommissioning opportunities
Cloudtamer.io’s Saving Opportunities identified rightsizing and decommissioning opportunities for users. Rightsizing opportunities suggests where a customer can save money by scaling back. Decommissioning opportunities scans for the resources that are not being used, which can be decommissioned. The new feature also displays how long resources have been in the plan and calculates an estimation about how much money will be saved if an action is taken. cloudtamer.io, CEO and co-founder, Brian Price said,
“Moving to the cloud lowers the barrier to entry for companies building applications and managing workloads. While it’s easy to spin up resources and access the services needed, it’s also very easy to forget about the resources that are no longer needed or are overprovisioned based on the current usage of the system. When a company is scaling quickly in the cloud, it’s difficult to focus the time and be disciplined enough to go back to identify abandoned resources until it’s too late. By then, unnecessary costly spends have already occurred.”
