Hitachi Vantara suggests that while using cloud resources accelerates innovation, agility, and growth. ungoverned on-demand consumption and unexpected costs tend to lead to budget overrun to the tune of thousands or even millions of dollars a year.
So Hitachi Cloud FinOps Services has been designed to optimising cloud costs by providing visibility and management across multiple cloud environments.
This, the company says, allows users to gain control over cloud spend with real-time visibility, right architectural choice and predictable usage; get more value from the cloud by balancing cost, speed, and quality; future-proof the organisation with best-in-breed cloud services.
On average, this saves users 30%, Hitachi Vantara claims.
"Managing cloud costs and investments across multiple cloud environments is complex, and it's easy to overspend on cloud services with limited visibility and predictability on utilisation," said Hitachi Vantara digital solutions business unit president Roger Lvin.
"Hitachi Cloud FinOps Services addresses this complexity and lowers the total cost of ownership through mapping spend data, tagging, allocating shared costs equitably, and recommending data-driven cost take-out measures."
Hitachi Cloud FinOps Services is delivered as a turnkey solution, including benchmarking current practices, recommending optimisations, and implementation of those changes with ongoing AI-enabled cost anomaly detection, budget alerts for cost visibility, cost recovery and predictability.
