Using a data driven approach, this assessment focuses on analyzing current Azure consumption to identify opportunities to right size the environment, inclusive of storage, networking, and VMs.
This assessment will review Azure to ensure that the cost appropriate services and solutions are being leveraged to scale up and down with demand and configured properly.
Deployment of analysis tool, collection of system and application performance and usage data, collection of networking patterns and bandwidth usage, collection of Azure platform configuration data, analysis of Azure consumption and usage patterns, review of Azure services and high level architecture.
Upon completion of the Cost Optimization Assessment, a report will be generated that identifies opportunities for reducing or otherwise optimizing the Azure consumption and associated costs. This report will include specific Azure resource adjustments in Virtual Machine types, storage and disk types and sizes, networking services, and configurations. Cost reductions of 10%-20% are not uncommon for un-optimized environments.
