  • How to Grow Microsoft Azure Usage While Shrinking Cloud Costs
    How to Grow Microsoft Azure Usage While Shrinking Cloud Costs
    Aaron Gettings, Technical Product Manager - Azure, CloudCheckr Recorded: Sep 6 2018 48 mins
    In terms of saving money, pay-as-you-go pricing for cloud computing is an appealing alternative to traditional IT infrastructure costs. But it comes with risk. Many cloud users end up wasting valuable resources by purchasing more cloud capacity than they need or buying Microsoft Azure Reserved Instances they'll never use. Businesses looking to grow their use of Microsoft Cloud may quickly find that Azure services alone are not enough to support the cloud consumption of a profitable managed service provider (MSP) or large enterprise.

    That's where the concept of cloud management comes into play. Adding a cloud management platform (CMP) vendor has the net effect of reducing cloud spend with cost optimization tools like Right-Sizing Recommendations, Fix-Now capabilities, and utilization alerts. To find out how cost optimization is crucial to cloud management register for this webinar featuring Microsoft Azure expert Aaron Gettings of CloudCheckr.

    You'll learn Microsoft Azure’s strengths and challenges, see how to save your organization time, money, and other valuable resources and how to shrink your growing cloud costs in Azure using CloudCheckr cloud management.
