Cloud Cost Optimization Services

Cloud computing has enabled unprecedented velocity and rapid prototyping, but it can also cause unpredictable spending behaviour. At OpsGuru, we look at cloud spending holistically across your entire stack. We will develop cloud spend optimization strategies and make recommendations that optimize cloud costs and save you money.

Oversubscription in Cloud

At OpsGuru, we pride ourselves on our ability to deploy cloud-native solutions to solve complex business problems. With the advent of container technologies such as Kubernetes or Nomad, organizations are once again able to oversubscribe workloads on compute capacity in the cloud.

OpsGuru can work with your organization to move your key workloads into containers, allowing you to squeeze every last penny out of your cloud spending and optimize costs.

Spot/Preemptible Compute

Preemptible or “Spot” instances provide drastic discounts on cloud compute in exchange for your instances being terminated when a vendor requires the capacity for a full-paying customer. OpsGuru is the only Canadian partner of Spot (Previously SpotInst) that can assist you in running your stateful applications, microservices, and data analytics on top of preemptible or spot instances.


Rightsizing involves a detailed review and analysis of your existing cloud technology and compute capacity. By collecting data and making informed decisions, OpsGuru can work with you to develop cloud cost optimization strategies to reduce your instance sizes and compute spend.

Our reviews include managed cloud services, compute, network, storage, and other potential hidden costs to ensure greater cloud cost management.

Maximising On-Premise Investments

Many organizations still have significant on-premise investments that continue to provide significant business value. As part of our cloud cost optimization services, OpsGuru can bring new life into these systems by deploying on-premise Kubernetes or Nomad. This provides the same cloud-native experience from public cloud vendors on your existing cloud infrastructure.

Architecture Reviews

By reviewing your cloud architecture, OpsGuru can make high-level cloud spend optimization recommendations to drastically reduce your cloud bill. Technologies such as serverless and containers allow you to change $/hr billing models into $/request but it’s not always a simple comparison. Architecture Reviews are conducted by OpsGuru’s principal architects who have been deploying significant workloads in the cloud for at least 7 years.

Cloud Cost Visibility

OpsGuru knows that cloud costs can be difficult to decipher. We are able to deploy cost optimization tools and dashboards which help you gain visibility and offer rich cloud usage and cost analytics.
