Cloud Cost Optimization and Management

Altocapa Ltd

The 'Pay as You Save' complete Cloud cost saving tool, tackling the root causes of overspend

Want to save more than 30% on your Cloud bills? Here is how...

For $5 (just one month's monitoring fee) you get a comprehensive review of resource idleness and oversizing in Azure with optional multi-cloud coverage.

Altocapa also highlights many other inefficiencies e.g., how many days (or more often years) a database may take to fill up based on a review of its growth. It may suggest a smaller size and the savings you can make. It also finds those forgotten backups and other orphaned resources that would otherwise accrue cost is forever!

'Pay as You Save Pricing' means you only pay a savings fee when a resource recommended for change is recorded as changed resulting in a cost reduction. You will be saving approx. 20 times the savings fee! To get you started we give you $90 savings fee credits worth up to $1800 in annual savings.

Altocapa provides simple recommendations that anyone can understand but also provides the details required to make those cost saving changes. It includes a workflow so you can track changes from recommendation to completion by the relevant team or rejection.

Altocapa provides continuous optimization and is the FinOps solution that helps you keep track of everything in the long term with a rolling summary dashboard. Its breadth and level of analysis is high measured with other popular Cloud optimization solutions and what the Cloud platforms provide themselves.

Altocapa allows you to relax in the knowledge you are only paying for what you need and use in the Cloud!

Who is it for:

Altocapa is for anyone (E.g., Cloud Manager, CTO, Project/Business Manager, Engineering/DevOps Lead, Finance and FinOps personnel) who wants to have oversight and confidence in the cost efficiency of their Cloud without having to chase down every cost saving opportunity.

How does it work:

  • Altocapa monitors an extensive list of your Cloud resources.
  • When it finds a resource that it recognizes as inefficient it creates an Action (see screens shots) including the potential annual saving*, the savings fee and summary analysis details.
  • You can dismiss the Action or start the workflow to reveal full details including resource identity and assign the action to any added stakeholder.
  • Triggering the workflow doesn't mean you get charged anything, but Altocapa starts a period of checking to see if the resource does get removed or changed resulting in a saving. Only when a cost saving change is found do you get charged the advised savings fee or less if, for example, the recommendation was to remove but the resource was downsized.
  • Fee charges are always taken from a balance you control on Altocapa and not billed directly to Azure.

Secure easy setup:

Altocapa is a SaaS system and as such operates outside your Azure cloud. It requires limited permissions to periodically read performance/configuration data from your Cloud necessary for analysis. It can be set up and monitoring in minutes.

Altocapa cannot read any data stored in your systems e.g., business data in apps and databases. Please see included Cloud permissions data sheet for additional details.
