Problem Statement

High Cost per Customer SaaS Cost

After a period of increased growth and additional customers the costs on the Azure platform increased significantly as more developers worked on the system.

This resulted in a large Azure bill each month which increased over time. In addition to this the DevOps solution needed to be updated to match recent platform enhancements.

Key FinOps Challenges

The FinOps Solution

Remove Under-Utilised Resources and Scale Down Services

Leveraging CloudMonitor, we identified underutilised resources and recommended a series of actions to remove or scale down services according to their benefit and risk potential. There was a lot of “low-hanging” fruit such as zombie resources, orphaned services and scaled up DEV/UAT Environments.

Over a two-week period, we implemented and measured the changes, ensuring the system performance was not compromised. This approach resulted in a significant 46% reduction in Azure spend. Additionally, it cultivated an increased cost-awareness amongst the development team, underscoring the cost implications of their actions.

With the expansion in operations and subsequent increase in Azure platform costs, Understanding Cloud Usage and Cost became extremely important. The growing number of developers led to greater cloud usage, and the organization needed to have a detailed understanding of this usage and its associated costs.

As the Azure bills began to escalate, it became imperative to effectively optimise cloud resources. The challenge was to align the actual workload needs with the utilised cloud services as closely as possible, only using the right resources in the right size and at the right time to maximize value to the business. This need for cost-effective use of cloud resources underscored the importance of Cloud Usage Optimisation.
