When it comes to cost optimization, you often focus on the top spenders, but the cost of the services that typically fall under the “Others” category can be just as high as the top cost drivers. It’s worth looking into the sources of these costs and identifying opportunities for cost and performance optimization. In this blog, I’ll use a few examples to demonstrate how you can dive deeper and understand the cost elements of these “other” services and what you can do to optimize the spend.
In the 3rd part of our 4-part Starting your Cloud Financial Management Journey series, we’ll cover the things you should consider and the tools you can use to forecast and plan for your existing or net-new workloads.
