Capacity planning for the cloud is all about forecasting usage

igroup has years of experience in planning and managing AWS instances. We work with your business to identify your AWS needs and then prepare and present a detailed capacity plan as part of the specification.

A common issue when businesses migrate to AWS is over specifying their solutions.  This can happen when inexperienced consultants incorrectly estimate capacity requirements.  This can inflate costs as under-utilised resources are still charged for as though they were at maximum performance.

To achieve a cost-effective and efficient cloud environment, outside help during the planning of your AWS migration can help ensure that you get the right balance between performance and efficiency for your application.

Our experienced team fully understand all the combinations and pricing structures that should be considered when architecting AWS environments.  Thanks to our software background we also know the right questions to ask so that we can build a rich understanding of your application requirements so that you can meet your objectives.

Our specialist consultants can help you identify your AWS capacity requirements reducing costs and risk

AWS Capacity Management

AWS capacity management is fundamental for any business that is planning to move their infrastructure and applications to the cloud.  Most IT teams will focus on specifying the hardware when in fact with a cloud environment such as AWS forecasting usage is the most important factor.

Our consultants help you identify your AWS capacity requirements to reduce wastage and improve performance

A significant benefit of moving to the cloud is that it offers your business the chance to scale operations as your cloud needs change. When planning AWS capacity there are multiple factors that should be considered including:

  • Number of licences / users both today and in the future
  • Storage – what information needs to be accessed immediately and what can be in long term storage
  • Growth – what are the business objectives and which areas are likely to grow
  • Location – where does information need to be accessed from and on what sort of devices
  • Compute and performance requirements – what will systems be used for

We understand that AWS capacity management is fundamental to ensuring a cost-effective and efficient cloud environment. We help reduce the risk of unforeseen changes that would incur time and cost to your business.
