  • Building a Cloud Center of Excellence Using the AWS Well-Architected Framework
    Building a Cloud Center of Excellence Using the AWS Well-Architected Framework
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager Recorded: Nov 22 2018 28 mins
    The Public Cloud may be new to many enterprises, but it has been around long enough for Best Practices to have been established. As organizations migrate to the cloud, they do not have to start from scratch. They can leverage policies, or frameworks, established by cloud gurus and avoid repeating the mistakes of the early adopters. It is also important to get buy-in from different departments, so establishing a Cloud Center of Excellence is highly recommended.

    Attendees of this CloudCheckr webinar will learn what a Cloud Center of Excellence (CCoE) is and who should participate in one. They will also understand the pillars of the AWS Well-Architected Framework (WAF) and discover how CloudCheckr can help establish both a CCoE and WAF.

  • Clean Up Your Public Cloud → How to Avoid Cloud Sprawl
    Clean Up Your Public Cloud → How to Avoid Cloud Sprawl
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager, Aaron Jeskey, Sr. Cloud Architect at Pinnacle Recorded: Nov 8 2018 34 mins
    Welcome to CloudCheckr Partner Webinars—where comprehensive cloud management meets a managed service provider to help you recognize the full potential of cloud infrastructure as a service.

    Modern enterprises are embracing the cloud primarily as a way to save money. But just as “Server Sprawl” was a problem with data centers, Cloud Sprawl can quickly become a concern. Without Cloud Cost Management, running a constantly growing and evolving set of public cloud services in a dynamic environment can easily get out of hand. In an ephemeral environment, resources can easily become under-utilized or wasted—negating any potential cost savings in the cloud.

    To further complicate the cost of the cloud, instances can be purchased at different rates, depending on how and when they are used. When left to individuals across different departments, teams, and business units, purchase decisions are less than optimal.

    Your organization needs to stay safe as you grow—which is why a comprehensive cloud platform should unify cost and security management. In this webinar featuring Pinnacle Technology Partners, attendees will learn about the risks involved with poor visibility and lack of control in AWS and Microsoft Azure, RI Purchasing and Right-sizing Recommendations, and why AWS and Azure perform better with Cloud Management tools.

  • Profiting from Reserved Instances: An RI Guide for Service Providers & Resellers
    Profiting from Reserved Instances: An RI Guide for Service Providers & Resellers
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager, Marit Hughes, CloudCheckr Billing Solutions Architect/SME Recorded: Oct 18 2018 33 mins
    Welcome to CloudCheckr Webinars—where we learn how to use comprehensive cloud management in the modern enterprise, as a service provider, and in the public sector.

    In this webinar, service providers and resellers looking to maximize profits, automatically generate invoices, and control where charges and discounts are applied will find that CloudCheckr cost management fits the bill.

    We’ll focus on the benefits of Reserved Instances, commonly known as RIs. The major cloud providers—Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP)—all offer a form of discount for customers who reserve computing power in advance. These Reserved Instances can result in savings of up to 75% compared to on-demand rates. For committed cloud users, RIs can be a great deal.

    Attend this webinar to learn how to use arbitrage and CloudCheckr Reserved Instance Purchase Recommendations, as a managed service provider (MSP), to increase profitability.
