“The Bill is Too Damn High”
Public Cloud spend is topping $160 billion a year and continues to rise. You’re worried you might be a non-trivial portion of that. Your bill keeps going up and at its current rate you fear you might be better off quietly slipping away before next quarter’s budget review. Before you start considering early retirement for the life of farming, let’s chat. We can help.
Here’s how it works
Step 1: We take a look at your bill.
We see a lot of them! Based on our experience, we’ll look for the first-pass opportunities for improvement, identify areas of concern, and figure out where the money is actually going.
Step 3: We write a report. It’s probably not what you’d expect.
We write a report of 5-8 actionable items you can do to reduce your bill that require little to no engineering effort. They make sense for your organization’s objectives, they won’t take long to implement, and it absolutely won’t be 300 pages of tiny fixes that take hours just to read through (much less implement). Our recommendations are impactful changes that we would do in our own environments if we were you.
Step 2: We talk to your teams.
Any automated tool can recommend you turn off idle EC2 instances; most automated tools will recommend you turn off your DR site. Unlike automated tools, we look for the context: what are you doing and why? We figure out where you are, what your constraints are, and where your business is going in the near-term and long-term.
Step 4: We follow up!
A month after delivering our report, we will check back in with you to see things are going. We’ll take a look at what you’ve implemented, what you haven’t, identify any obstacles, and determine what makes sense as a next step. Was one of our recommendations more work than anyone suspected? Let’s find a way to fix that!
Our Work is 100% Money-back Guaranteed.
This isn’t one of those empty guarantees you skip past: If we don’t identify savings in an amount we agree on before the engagement, we’ll give you a full and immediate refund of the entire engagement’s fee. But wait, we’re not done yet: you also have an entire 30 days after the engagement closes to take us up on it.
We really do believe that strongly about our services, and most notably, not a single client of ours has ever asked for a refund.
