AWS Cost Optimization

Greater visibility into your AWS environment for empowered spending decisions

Reducing technology spend is a significant benefit of operating in the cloud. However, cloud spend can steadily rise over time or even skyrocket without a cost-effective infrastructure, continuous oversight, and transparency into your cloud environment.

On average, we save customers an extra 30% off their AWS bill.

Cloud Cost Optimization with FinOps


What is FinOps?

While FinOps may look like shorthand for Financial Operations, the term originates from Finance and DevOps. FinOps emphasizes the importance of a collaborative relationship between business (finance) and engineering (development) regarding cost optimization and cloud financial management.

FinOps aims to enable businesses to get the most value from their AWS environment by connecting finance, business, and engineering teams to collaborate on cloud cost management strategies and decisions.


How Mission Cloud Leverages FinOps for Cost Optimization

FinOps is quickly becoming an industry-wide practice that helps organizations better understand and control cloud spending to promote a cost-conscious culture. We offer services like Mission Cloud Foundation and Mission Cloud One that feature access to CloudHealth by VMware and a team of Cloud Analysts that meet with you regularly to review your AWS activity and spend, followed by data-driven recommendations to optimize your AWS spend. Our FinOps support focuses on these four areas to ensure your AWS environment is fully optimized for cost and performance:

  • Environmental cleanup
  • Architecture
  • Operational practices
  • Financial engineering

AWS Cost Optimization Areas of Focus

AWS Well-Architected Framework - Cost Optimization Best Practices

As an AWS Well-Architected Partner, Mission Cloud provides services and tools to help you put to practice the five AWS-recommended design principles for cost optimization:

Implement cloud financial management

Cloud Financial Management is essential for financial success and business value acceleration in the cloud. Mission Cloud helps you become a more cost-effective organization by providing the expertise, programs, resources, and processes to manage your environment financially.

Adopt a consumption model

Pay only for what you need and use, and scale up or down as needed. For example, development and testing environments are only used for several hours every day. We can help you save by turning off/automating these resources.

Measure overall efficiency

Mission Cloud continuously measures your workload's business output and delivery expenses. Then we use this data to calculate your benefits of functionality, expanding output, and lowering costs.

Stop spending money on undifferentiated heavy lifting

AWS handles data center tasks like racking, stacking, and powering servers. Our cloud managed services relieve the operational strain of managing your operating systems and applications. You get to focus on your business rather than IT infrastructure.

Analyze and attribute expenditure

Mission Cloud makes it easier to identify and analyze the usage and cost of your workloads. Transparent attribution of IT costs to revenue streams and individual owners of various workloads help you measure ROI and enables workload owners a chance to optimize resources and lower costs.

Mission Cloud Financial Engineering Programs

By working with Mission Cloud, you'll also be able to take advantage of these additional financial engineering programs that are proven to uncover even more savings off your AWS bill.

Instant Discount Program (IDP)

With Mission Cloud IDP, you can get guaranteed and immediate savings on your monthly AWS bill without a long-term commitment. With IDP, you gain access to Mission Cloud Foundation for additional cost optimization and governance.

Reserved Instance Optimization (RIO) Program

Mission Cloud purchases Reserved Instances (RIs) and Savings Plans (SPs) on your behalf, so there is no contractual commitment, no upfront costs, and no risk to you.

AWS Enterprise Discount Program (EDP)

AWS EDP offers enterprise cloud users an appreciable, flat discount on AWS spend in exchange for a long-term commitment. Mission Cloud brings expert knowledge and proven experience in EDPs to help you save money, optimize future spending, and implement strong governance practices to improve value over time.

AWS Private Pricing Agreement (PPA)

Private Pricing Agreements offer discounts for businesses with considerable spend and or longer-term commitments. Because of the highly individualized nature of Private Pricing Agreements with AWS, our team of AWS and cost optimization experts help you understand all the options and benefits available to you in the process. We support you in navigating the processes at AWS for getting a PPA negotiated and executed.
