Hybrid cloud is on the rise, so what kinds of issues are organizations facing? According to RightScale (now Flexera)’s 2019 State of the Cloud report, the top priority this year is cloud cost optimization. That makes sense when you stop to think about it — as cloud use increases, it’s natural that the costs associated are also increasing. Sixty-four percent of all organizations surveyed cited cloud costs as their top concern, but it’s even more so among intermediate and advanced cloud users (70 and 76 percent respectively), who fully understand the cloud and the cost challenges it brings.
Despite all this squawking from organizations, very few have actually implemented policies to address this issue. Want to be in the cool kids club? Here’s what you can do:
Don’t wait around for the cloud to be optimized, because it’s not going to optimize itself. There’s plenty of different things you can do to make your cloud a lean, mean, optimized machine, so get going already!
