IT Cost Optimization

Achieve More and Spend Less on IT

Optimizing infrastructure costs is one of the key tasks faced by IT departments today. Competent assessment of the total cost of ownership (TCO), the careful selection of services and payment model (CAPEX or OPEX), and the ability to calculate and manage ROI — these are labor-intensive but essential components in keeping costs low.

Selectel specialists will help you to optimize the structure of your IT expenses, taking into account the distinctive features of your information systems, their work and load.

Optimization: the results

  • Maximum effectiveness of IT infrastructure use.
  • Cost-effective architecture that ensures the required level of uninterrupted work (uptime).
  • Reduced risks as a result of adjustments made.
  • Lower IT-related costs.

What makes savings possible?

  • We will help with the choice of payment scheme: pay-as-you-go or long-term subscription.
  • We will identify underused resources and propose an optimal configuration.
  • We will analyze your load and identify periods when it regularly increases and decreases. We will configure rules for automatic scaling.
  • We will lower infrastructure management costs through automatization via API and our administration services.
  • We will analyze your cloud services and propose alternatives.
  • We will see whether you have selected the appropriate data storage class. If there is data that you rarely access, we will propose more economic storage options.
  • We will find out how often you make snapshots and backups. This way we will understand how much you are paying to store them.

Your infrastructure can cost less

Reduce current expenditure on infrastructure by identifying idle capacity and carefully selecting services that are suitable for the solution of your tasks. Skilfully scale computing resources at times of peak load and properly manage your budget.
