Cloud Optimisation.

Whether public cloud, private cloud or hybrid cloud, our consultants know how to optimise the performance and cost of your cloud environment.

What is cloud optimisation?

It’s the process of removing cloud resources you aren’t using and continually matching those resources to organisation requirements. Cloud optimisation ensures you have the right cloud platforms, performing in the right way at the most efficient spend.

Benefits of cloud optimisation

Most cloud environments evolve with new platforms and processes being added over time. Organisations who don’t optimise their cloud environment often find they are paying for resources they don’t use or their platforms are under performing.

Continuous development


Workload performance, compliance are matched against the best fit cloud infrastructure.

Cost savings

Cloud cost optimisation reduces waste and removes those resources you aren’t using.

Greater visibility

You get detailed data on cloud performance so you can make more informed decisions.

Increased productivity

The resulting optimised environment means IT teams spend less time problem solving.

Cloud Check Service

A free of charge cloud optimisation service that checks your cloud security, consumption costs, efficiency and compliance against best practices. No cost, no obligation. You get a detailed cloud architecture efficiency report with key recommendations to help you reduce cloud consumption costs, validate governance controls, increase operational efficiency and ensure your platform aligns to current best practice.
