Cloudyn White Paper Defines Real Cloud Economics and Addresses the Trend of Overprovisioning

Today, Cloudyn published a new whitepaper that outlines how organizations can maximize their cloud investment and dynamically optimize the balance between operational and financial objectives of using the cloud. In the whitepaper, Cloudyn defines cloud economics and perfect-provisioning and offers companies a checklist for cloud cost efficiency.

“The Great Hope of Cloud Economics and the Over-provisioning Epidemic” whitepaper examines how cloud resource deployments can’t always be characterized or allocated using simple models – and the complexity of cloud pricing and provisioning is quickly moving beyond human capacity to comprehend, much less act upon. Addressed in the paper is how companies need highly intelligent tools which can not only iteratively learn resource usage patterns, but can provide actionable recommendations for how to optimize cloud deployment by rightsizing and choosing the most economical pricing plans.

“People move to the cloud for agility and to save money, but in reality, costs quickly add up to much more than anticipated,” said Cloudyn CEO, Sharon Wagner. “The whitepaper explores how businesses of all sizes can gain more insight into the cloud via an understanding of the economics of the cloud environment. Cloudyn’s technological approach provides cost visibility, control and optimization for cloud customers working to get a handle on those costs.”

“Business and technology decision makers can't manage what they can't measure, and they can't measure what they can't see,” said Michael Dortch, Technology Industry Analyst, “With Cloudyn, companies gain the visibility they need to determine precisely the services they're using, as well as recommendations for how best to optimize the costs and performance of those services.”
