With cloud spend growing to record levels each year, it’s no wonder that there are so many new tools and services purporting to optimize your cloud spend. And while some of them may work, many are just consulting services disguised as a tool, or they’re tools that don’t have enough nuance to help you make meaningful optimizations. They often want you to hand over the keys to the kingdom to make these changes, putting you and your organization at risk of leaking confidential information or suffering downtime if anything goes wrong.
What we’ve noticed is these traditional approaches and tools have made the entire ecosystem of cloud cost optimization seem unreliable (or even shady). So when we tell our customers about IgniteTech’s Cloud Cost Optimization offering, they’re rightfully skeptical.
The truth is, IgniteTech and our parent company manage 45,000+ AWS accounts, and we simply want to share with our customers access to the tools that we use ourselves to identify and automatically execute fixes on our AWS accounts.
Because of the reluctance and/or skepticism surrounding cloud cost optimization, we have put together this simple chart to highlight some of the key differences between IgniteTech’s Cloud Cost Optimization offering and traditional approaches.
