Beyond 'Bill Shock': How Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust achieved budget goals with Wasabi Cloud Storage
Would you give a key supplier a blank cheque? This seems to be what happens when cloud services are contracted for. The unknown amount of data egress and the associated API calls creates total uncertainty and makes budget planning impossible. The UK Government’s website and advice on cloud services states:
“...this means you need to be flexible in how you budget for cloud services, put in place systems and processes to monitor your spending, and design your applications to take advantage of the cloud cost model. Building up a comprehensive picture of your ongoing cloud spend will help you avoid unexpected ‘bill shock’ and make it easier to continually carry out cost optimisation so that your cloud infrastructure remains as efficient as possible.” https://www.gov.uk/guidance/managing-your-spending-in-the-cloud”
When Budgets are fixed, that is an incredibly difficult task. Join Kevin Dunn, Wasabi’s Country Manager for UK/I as he speaks to Yusuf Mangera, Technical Architect at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust to hear how Wasabi has helped them adopt Cloud Storage and give them 100% cost predictability.
