How to reduce your cloud costs by monitoring your resource usage, exploring architecture changes, and switching to DigitalOcean for favorable bandwidth pricing and more.
Cloud optimization is the process of reducing cloud costs and increasing the efficiency of the cloud-based architecture of an application. Cloud optimization usually refers to optimizing the usage of resources from public cloud providers, such as virtual machines, storage, and databases, and has been increasingly popular as cloud costs have increased. Optimizing a cloud architecture could include identifying unused resources, finding cost savings by moving to a different cloud provider, or even re-architecting an entire application to a more scalable solution such as Kubernetes.
Learn how DigitalOcean customers save money and experience more predictable cloud costs by switching to DigitalOcean as their primary cloud provider.
