  • Zero trust approach
  • Remove legacy 3rd party tools

Optimise

Our team will review your cloud services to monitor for under/over specific workloads, checking scaling up in appropriately configured and limits are in place.
Regular reviews to monitor over-specified workloads, appropriate use of storage accounts, optimum licensing strategy. Recommendations to consider alternative deployment methods to reduce costs e.g. serverless instances.

  • Review sizing, scaling, and DR
  • Scheduled downscaling for unused server hours
  • Validate test/dev workloads are still necessary
  • Move to serverless applications
