Driving Down Cloud Migration Costs: Maximize Your ROI

This blog post discusses cloud migration cost management for startups. * Cloud migration offers benefits like scalability and flexibility, but also introduces challenges in managing costs. * Unexpected costs can arise due to factors like bespoke software, downtime during migration, and data transfer. To create a cloud cost management plan, startups should: * Estimate current infrastructure and software costs. * Estimate cloud infrastructure costs using cloud provider pricing calculators. * Estimate cloud migration costs, including application migration, data transfer, and running parallel environments. * Estimate post-migration costs, including continued integration and application testing. The post also recommends creating a feedback loop to monitor the cost-effectiveness of cloud migration. Wishtree Technologies, a cloud technology partner, offers consultation on cloud cost management for startups.

Mastering Cloud Cost Visibility: Exploring its Significance and Best Practices

This blog post discusses cloud cost visibility and its importance in managing cloud expenses. * Cloud cost visibility is the analysis of different costs associated with cloud services, including applications, infrastructure, and resources. * Businesses are increasingly using cloud computing, making cloud spending a significant expense. * It's challenging to control cloud costs due to the complex nature of pricing, tagging, and resource dynamics. * Cloud cost visibility helps businesses identify cloud spending by individual business units, track accurate cloud cost and spending, and gain a central view of cloud costing. To achieve better cloud cost visibility, the following best practices are recommended: * Involve all stakeholders in the process. * Establish visibility based on cost allocation using tags. * Generate granular reports to analyze costs by resource usage. * Create a systematic tagging strategy for accurate cost allocation. * Implement a central dashboard to manage cloud resources across accounts and locations.

Enhance your Enterprise Cloud Security Every Step of the Way in 2024

This blog post discusses cloud security and best practices to ensure a secure cloud migration. Key cloud security concepts include understanding the shared responsibility model between you and your cloud service provider (CSP). Choosing a reliable cloud service provider is crucial, considering factors like certifications, data management, and information security. Implementing sturdy access controls, multi-factor authentication (MFA), and the principle of least privilege are essential for cloud security. Network security measures include using a virtual private network (VPN), cloud firewall, and cloud intrusion detection system (IDS). Regularly updating and patching cloud applications is necessary to address vulnerabilities.
