5 Steps to Better Cloud Cost Management

Step 1. Retire Unused Cloud Resources & Instances

Keeping cloud costs low can be difficult for any organization but it can be especially difficult for those who are new to cloud computing.

Step 2. Always Autoscale Cloud Resources

If you aren’t utilizing an auto-scaling mechanism then you are missing out on a key benefit of cloud computing. What auto-scaling does is, it buys capacity as needed; scaling up or down when required. The most common mistake in cloud engagements is buying more capacity than necessary. The more cost-effective method is to simply automatically resize your capacity as requirements dictate.
