leverage Spot Instances with no risk of downtime


Work with Bell to reduce 80% off your cloud computing costs

There are many different cloud hosting companies. Finding the best possible solution at the optimum price that doesn’t compromise on reliability can seem an impossible task. Many companies choose Unused Capacity – Customers often have many different cloud hosted accounts that are managed by different departments without consideration of the cost for each environment.


The Challenge

Organisations that have moved to Public Cloud often find the savings envisaged do not materialise

Unused Capacity – Customers often have many different cloud accounts that being managed by different departments without considering the costs of each environment.

Light left on but nobody home – The instances run 24X7, despite the fact they are not utilized during the night hours. This behaviour creates a lot of unused capacity that’s running without being put to good use.

Cloud waste – additional costs can often be aligned to poor cloud management processes and how cloud is consumed with public cloud providers pushing customers towards reserved capacity models which lock customers into contracts where customers are paying for more than they need.



Reserved Instances
If your organisation is buying Reserved Instances in the cloud, you’re making a huge investment up front.

Although reserved instances are significantly better value than on demand services (up to 60%), they are often the wrong size or timeframe to meet the business needs in a constantly changing market place.

Ideally a companies reserved instance should be continuously managed and closely aligned to the organisations strategy. Typically there’s 100s of decisions which need to made every month with:

  • 100’s of usage groups to consider
  • 12 contract options per RI purchase
  • Utilisation targets
  • RI Expirations
  • Manual Conversions
  • Avoiding customer RI overlap
  • Missed RI Marketplace opportunities
  • AWS Pricing Changes
  • React to usage patterns
