In the UK, the market for managed cloud services leveraging Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS
platforms is vast with many providers offering different services. Choosing between a direct relationship with the platform owners or a partnership with a bespoke consultancy is a key decision that will shape how your business uses the cloud.
Whilst the technology and capabilities of the cloud are constantly changing and improving, there can be a lack of understanding when it comes to how the process works and how it differs from previous on-site infrastructures available.
The cloud has grown to become an integral part of modern business, facilitating greater agility, flexibility, speed, and innovation. But the subscription service model is something which causes many organisations significant problems with unpredictable costs and unnecessary over-spending.In this article, we explore the common issues with cloud cost management, and provide guidance for gaining greater visibility and control over your cloud spend.
We have the hard-won experience of working with hundreds of Azure environments. We can help give you a second opinion and the support that you need.
Overall, the public cloud services offered by Microsoft and Amazon are similar however, using the two platforms can be made more complex by virtue of them using different naming conventions for similar services.
The CloudOps Active Management Solution (CAMS) has been developed by igroup because of their experience in supporting and managing customer cloud environments since 2010.
CAMS brings together performance and cost monitoring tools, support processes and general administration functions through a single portal to manage your cloud.
Our articles aim to give you the information you need on key topics related to both AWS and Azure. If you have an area you want to know more about and it's not listed then please feel free to get in touch.

The business risk to moving your software product or service to the cloud is significant.
In this guide, we address general technical concerns and how to tackle the knowledge gap, explain cloud components, how they fit together, compare traditional infrastructure to cloud infrastructure, and explain which cloud services are best suited to software providers.
