It is undeniable that using cloud architecture allows companies to grow. But have you ever stopped to think about the costs involved in the entire cloud computing structure? In the cloud, there are no acquisition costs. On the downside, there are significant operating expenses. Find out how to keep track of operating costs in 7 basic tips.

Cloud architecture: how to manage your operational cost

Tip #1 : Using Point Instances

In the process of implementing a cloud architecture, it is always necessary to check whether the use of service technology assets are in accordance with what was planned and with the desired results. Therefore, as a means of optimizing operating costs is to use the AWS Spot instance . Which consists of computational capacity, when there is low demand, through discounts in relation to the prices of other high-demand instances.

Tip #2 : Using Containers

When adopting the use of containers cloud there is the benefit of efficiency in memory, CPU and storage. Using containers in your cloud architecture mitigates the overhead required on separate operating system instances. Improving performance because there is an operating system that takes care of hardware calls.

Tip #3 : Serverless Cloud Computing

The architecture of the cloud, through serverless allows applications and services to be compiled and executed without worrying about servers. That is, developers can focus their efforts on the core product without the overhead of worrying about running servers, cloud or on-premises. Allowing the use of your energy to be focused on the development of new products, with scalability and reliability.

Tip #4 : Efficient management of IT resources

Cloud Computing the cloud architecture that is the greatest ally for the moment of limited resources. Since the biggest attraction in using this resource is cost reduction, as it is periodic, flexible and adaptable to your needs. By having a company responsible for managing the tools, it becomes unnecessary to hire a dedicated IT team. The services that are necessary for the maintenance of the infrastructure are offered by the contracted company.

Tip #5 : Continuous Improvement through Cloud Architecture Review

When migrating to the cloud and obtaining the first positive results, the continuous improvement is inevitable. The cloud architecture used must accompany the development of the contracted company's applications. That is why it is important to ensure that in the continuous improvement processes the architecture to be used is evaluated both in technical and cost aspects.

Tip #6 : Asset utilization

When you think of computing without local servers, you think of using cloud architecture. After all, in this way it is possible to eliminate costs with local data centers and their maintenance. That is, there is a reduction in ROI (Return on Investment) and an increase in TCO (Total Cost of Ownership). Knowing how to reduce TCO is one of the main ways to keep the account balanced and have better control of operating costs.

Tip #7 : Use good practices

Without a doubt, data is an organization's most important asset. Without them, companies cannot carry out daily activities, so that the business gains a competitive advantage in the market. Therefore, the main factor in using cloud architecture is the possibility for companies to scale safely and at a lower cost. Mainly through the use of good data security practices adopted.

With all these tips, it is essential to have good providers of cloud architecture. That offer reliable, safe and quality services, like Amazon and partner companies such as Sky.One . That have experienced, trained professionals and world reference in cloud computing.
