Why nClouds for FinOps?
nClouds delivers strategic FinOps solutions for your cloud environment:
If an organization is looking to optimize its AWS spend and reduce costs, it can engage in an AWS FinOps optimization to identify areas in which it can optimize resource usage, eliminate waste, and reduce unnecessary spending.
If an organization lacks visibility into its AWS usage and cost, it can engage in an AWS FinOps optimization to gain insights into its AWS usage and identify areas in which it can optimize usage and reduce costs.
If an organization is experiencing cloud growth and needs to manage increasing AWS usage and cost, it can engage in an AWS FinOps optimization to optimize usage, improve cost efficiency, and manage costs as it scales.
Mergers and Acquisitions
If an organization is undergoing a merger or acquisition, it can engage in an AWS FinOps optimization to optimize resource usage, reduce costs, and integrate AWS accounts and usage.
If an organization lacks the expertise or resources to manage AWS costs and usage, it can engage in an AWS FinOps optimization to leverage the expertise of an AWS FinOps team to optimize usage, reduce costs, and improve efficiency.
Focus on Core Business
Companies oftentimes have engineering resource constraints and deadlines for products and features. An engagement can enable a company to optimize while remaining focused on its core business and customers. The potential savings can help offset engineering resources and allow the organization to move even faster.
1. No-Cost FinOps Rapid Diagnostic
2. FinOps Optimization Assessment
nClouds Solutions Architects will then create a comprehensive statement of optimization opportunities along with potential cost savings over the next 12 months. A statement of work will include all optimizations along with the cost for nClouds to do the optimizations.
This in-depth analysis charges a flat fee which will be applied to the optimization should you choose to engage nClouds for the optimization itself.
