Cloud Capacity Management

Prepare your business for growth whilst slashing costly service incidents and eliminating redundant capacity costs.

Keeping your cloud platforms scalable, stable and efficient requires a disciplined approach to capacity management. The cloud provides infinite capacity, but it is critical that your technology platforms can scale efficiently to leverage its capabilities. Our Cloud Capacity Planning and Management Services provide a deeper understanding of demand and capacity to help ensure your cloud supports your business through both peaks and troughs – whilst ensuring optimal costs and performance.

 

Cloud Capacity Management is the process we use to:

  • Help reduce excess capacity so your business does not overconsume

  • Prepare your business for growth

  • Slash costly service incidents

Cloud Capacity Management gives developers, IT teams, and DevOps Engineers the insight they need to ensure that their workloads have the required resources. It lessens the risk that workloads will become overprovisioned in ways that waste money and add unnecessary management overhead.

 

Results we have delivered to our clients

  • $36m OPEX saving through safe capacity reduction and incident prevention.

  • 76% increase in the order capacity of an e-commerce platform, without incurring additional capacity spend.
