Join AWS: How to Turn Utilization Data into Automated Cost Control

Posted by Katy Stalcup on Jun 20, 2019, 9:15:00 AM

There is a cloud waste problem: most organizations using public cloud are wasting thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars on cloud resources they’re not actually using. Whether it’s due to pre-production resources running 24x7, improperly sized resources, or resources that have simply been orphaned or forgotten, the wasted spend can grow to become a significant portion of a public cloud bill.

Even if you’re aware of overspend, you may not think you have the time or bandwidth to address the issue. However, with turnkey automated solutions, you may not need much time or bandwidth to reduce wasted spend.

Automated resource management is key, and ParkMyCloud, the latest addition to the Turbo family, focuses on the cost optimization aspect of resource management.

Here’s one example. Sysco Foods has more than 500 cloud users across 50 teams throughout the company and the globe, all using AWS infrastructure to power their business units. As they migrated to AWS, their spend grew rapidly. However, since beginning to use ParkMyCloud, they’ve achieved a lifetime ROI of 1400%. AWS data and ParkMyCloud’s automation capabilities empower Sysco’s users to identify what spend is necessary, and what can be optimized.

Join AWS, Sysco, and ParkMyCloud for a live webinar to learn more about how to turn your AWS utilization data into automated cost control on June 26 at 2 PM Eastern/11 AM Pacific.

The webinar will give you an understanding of:

  • What Amazon CloudWatch and AWS Trusted Advisor data is available that can help you save money
  • Real-world examples of cost savings
  • Potential data availability challenges and “gotchas” and how to address them
  • How ParkMyCloud’s automated cost optimization platform can use your utilization data to optimize costs
