Cloud Cost Management

Many companies rely on the public Cloud for improved agility, flexibility and innovation. However, most Cloud Platforms offer a consumptive based billing model, which means 80% of organisations end up overshooting their IaaS budget with costs spiralling out of control. Enter Cloud Cost Management, an ongoing discipline that determines budgets and enforces a more cost-conscious culture.

The ever-changing nature of Cloud means optimisation is vital, and our platform offers strategic initiatives such as:

  • Adherence to Cloud Strategy Pillars (Operations, Security Compliance, Cost Management)
  • Optimisation and alignment of Cloud investments with business initiatives.
  • Implementation of excellence areas, namely Visibility, Optimisation and Cost Governance.
  • Software-Managing Cloud costs via a host of software and services.
  • Powered by Cloud Health Software from VMware.
  • Connection to most hyperscale Clouds (Azure, Amazon Web, Google Cloud).
  • Predictive alerting to notifying you of potentially major costs.

Vox, powered by Braintree, equips your brand with all the tools required to ensure your Cloud Strategy doesn’t break your budget. From the right visibility and tooling to a controlled spend, we offer simplified financial management, streamlined operations, strong security and compliance.
