We are a small, technical team working with Azure, cloud technologies, solution development and DevOps for the past 8 years. Most of us have worked in Microsoft and Google and have broad experience in cloud technologies.
We recognize a rapidly-growing amount of Azure usage requests, specifically as it applies to cost optimization. Although there are automatic optimization tools, scripts, bot advisors available; However the automated optimization suggestions still cannot rival the optimization skills that an experienced specialist can.
Therefore, we want to share our expertise more broadly and introducing a Azure Consumption Audit for Azure customers. Using scripts, tools and our experience, we are producing a list of feasible recommendations on how to optimize Azure usage and costs. Our initial results based on a limited number of monthly audits is yielding an average cost savings averaging 30%.
Here is the list of topics that we are regularly covering and a few examples per topic:Virtual Machines analysis:
Usually, it takes about 2 weeks to assess and provide an audit report, but timeframe can vary depending on subscription size. We see that customers with an average usage of cloud resources with >$5000 per month already have a room for optimization and can benefit from such audit.
Our audit is free of charge! We operate on a success-based compensation schedule and will invoice you only if we identify a way to save you money. If you are interested in learning more, please feel free to reach me out via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
