Cloud Operations

We’re Azure and AWS experts who pro-actively monitor and optimise your cloud infrastructure based on usage changes and service/cost changes to maximise both performance and costs.

Operational Efficiency

If anyone ever tells you the cloud runs itself – don’t listen! Yes, there’s a lot of automation above the infrastructure level that can be managed by tools, but you still need to know what you’re doing.  The infrastructure itself shouldn’t be considered as a one-off task either.  You need an infrastructure management plan in place.

In the same way, you service your car, the inner working of a cloud environment needs a regular tune-up.

With the right tools or service, you’ll have better oversight of your usage patterns and visibility of how actual usage compares with capacity, giving you the information, you need to reconfigure your environment to better reflect your real-world usage providing immediate opportunities for cost saving.

When you host directly with Microsoft or AWS, you won’t receive any alerts informing you of cost increases throughout the month and only see the damage in your monthly billing.

The difficulty comes with knowing what choices to make in AWS and Microsoft’s detailed config options.

Did you know?

AWS and Azure pricing can change every month affecting your monthly billing.  By choosing igroup, your pricing is caped for the duration of your 1, 2 or 3-year contract, eliminating spikes in your billing.

  2. Tracked spend – AWS and Azure pricing changes every month which affects your monthly billing.  By choosing igroup, your pricing is caped for the duration of your 1, 2 or 3-year contract, eliminate spikes in your billing.
  3. Further savings – Our team optimises your costs and performance by collating your data in our own bespoke software and analysing configurations to better reflect your real-world usage leading to immediate cost saving.
