Survey: Most Companies are Failing at Cloud Cost Management

For the third straight year, respondents said optimizing cloud usage to save money is their number-one priority, with 64 percent of respondents saying it was their top initiative for 2019, according to the report. For example, less than half (47 percent) of Amazon Web Services customers use AWS Reserved Instances, which provide substantial discounts to users who reserve capacity over a one to three-year period. Only 23 percent of Microsoft Azure users use reserved instances, while only 10 percent of Google Cloud customers are using a similar discount option that Google calls “committed use discounts,” according to the RightScale 2019 State of the Cloud Report.
