Cloud Cost Scenarios

Cloud Capacity planning is extremely important to controlling your costs.  This offering can provide the vital information to determine if the cloud resources are just enough or if you are potentially overpaying for resources that are not necessary to meet your cyclical business needs.  Capacity planning provides the infrastructure to flex for the peak and normal times of your business cycle to give you the control to dynamically change your spend to support your needs.  Cloud offerings are meant to be dynamically/demand adjustable, but most companies don't make these adjustments and leave their systems at peak infrastructure while paying too much year after year for their Cloud services as a result.
