EPS Cloud employs a three-phase cloud optimisation approach, showing cost savings models and implementation of recommended changes in each phase to ensure that you:
Phase 1 – Dynamic uptime, scaling and scheduling
In a typical environment, a large amount of systems are used only during business hours, meaning that backend systems frequently sit idle, other than running monthly, quarterly or yearly batch functions. Phase 1 focuses on helping your company obtain the best ROI from your systems, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Phase 2 – Leveraging purchase commitments
The majority of cloud platform providers offer large discounts for spending commitments - that is, a minimum amount of usage over a period of time. Understanding these models can be the difference between cloud-spend spiralling out of control and ensuring ROI.
Phase 3 – Right-sizing and feature evolution
Many cloud infrastructures start out as “lift and shift” projects, where existing on-premises infrastructures are mapped to the cloud on an as-is basis. Although it can be done quickly, this approach can result in oversized and ineffective systems. Even if an infrastructure was perfectly sized at initial setup, cloud platform providers are constantly updating features and offering performance enhancements.
EPS Cloud’s Hyper Care services provide round-the-clock management, monitoring, provisioning and troubleshooting of your cloud workloads during the stabilisation period after your go-live date.
