Optimizing cloud spending, gaining granular cost visibility and implementing automated governance practices maximize the value of cloud investments.

Think about it this way:

Optimizing cloud spending involves actively managing resources to avoid unnecessary costs. This includes identifying and eliminating underutilized resources, right-sizing instances to match actual needs, and leveraging cost-saving options like reserved instances and spot pricing. 

Gaining granular cost visibility requires comprehensive insights into cloud resource utilization. This involves tracking costs across various services, understanding the factors driving them and identifying potential areas for optimization. 

Finally, implementing automated governance practices streamlines cloud financial management and minimizes human error. This involves setting spending limits, automating resource provisioning and scaling and enforcing compliance with predefined policies. 

Collectively, these practices let businesses move beyond simply using the cloud to strategically use its capabilities while optimizing costs and maximizing the return on their cloud investments.

And in a move to simplify and enhance cloud financial management for businesses, global technology solutions provider Arrow Electronics announced it was selected by Broadcom as the sole provider for its CloudHealth from VMware offering.
