Benefits of cloud optimisation

Cost savings

By properly managing and optimising resources across different cloud platforms, businesses can avoid unnecessary costs and achieve greater cost efficiency.


Businesses can optimise application performance by choosing the right cloud service for each task, taking into account network latency and computing capabilities.


With a multi-cloud strategy, if one service provider experiences an outage, businesses can shift workloads to other providers, ensuring continuous service.

Greater flexibility

Businesses can take advantage of different cloud providers' unique features and capabilities to meet their specific needs. This allows for a tailored IT strategy.

Reduced vendor lock-in

Businesses are not overly reliant on a single vendor by using multiple providers. This gives them the freedom to switch providers if they are unsatisfied with their current provider's service.

Better security

A multi-cloud strategy can spread risk across multiple platforms. Not all data is at risk if one platform is compromised. Moreover, different providers may offer unique security features that can complement each other.


Some businesses operate in regions with strict data sovereignty laws. A multi-cloud strategy allows data to be stored and processed in specific geographical locations, helping businesses to comply with these laws.

Innovation and experimentation

Different cloud providers offer different innovative services. A multi-cloud strategy allows businesses to experiment with these services and find the best solution for their needs.


A multi-cloud strategy can improve disaster recovery efforts. If one cloud provider suffers a major incident, data and applications can be quickly moved to another provider.

Being a customer of multiple providers can increase a business’s negotiating power. Providers may offer better terms and conditions to prevent their customers from moving entirely to another provider.


What to consider when optimising the cloud?

Here are some of the top considerations that Centerprise International take into consideration when helping customers optimise.

Cost efficiency

Managing and controlling costs is crucial in a multi-cloud environment. Each cloud service provider (CSP) has different pricing models for their services, and costs can add up quickly if not carefully managed. Proper monitoring and management tools are needed to optimise resource usage and avoid unnecessary expenses.

Interoperability and integration

Different CSPs have different APIs and services; integrating them seamlessly can be challenging. Centerprise will ensure that the chosen CSPs can work together without causing disruptions or inefficiencies.

Security and compliance

Security is a significant concern in multi-cloud environments. Each CSP has its own security features and standards, and ensuring consistent security across all platforms is essential. Centerprise will ensure that the customer’s security is maintained or improved. Additionally, Centerprise will ensure that their customers comply with various regulations, which may require specific features or configurations.

Disaster recovery and redundancy

Centerprise will ensure that customers have a robust disaster recovery plan in place. Multi-cloud environments can provide additional redundancy, but this must be properly configured and managed.

Skills and expertise

Managing a multi-cloud environment requires specific skills and expertise. Centerprise will ensure the customer has the necessary talent in-house or will offer a managed service to manage the environment.

Performance and latency

Centerprise will consider the performance of the customer’s applications in a multi-cloud environment, including network latency, data transfer speeds, and the performance of the CSPs' data centres. Centerprise may suggest that the customer needs to use a mix of CSPs to ensure optimal performance for all users, regardless of location.

Vendor lock-in

Avoiding vendor lock-in is a key consideration. The more a business relies on a single CSP's proprietary services and features, the harder it is to switch to a different provider if needed. Centerprise will review exit plans to ensure the flexibility of providers in the future. Often, ensuring open standards and platforms can help mitigate this risk.

Data management

Managing data across multiple CSPs can be complex. Centerprise will advise where their customer’s data is stored, how it's accessed, and how it's moved between different platforms. Data sovereignty laws may also influence where data can be stored.

Service level agreements (SLAs)

Different CSPs offer different SLAs, which can impact the reliability and availability of services. Centerprise will ensure the suggested solution can meet their specific needs and requirements.

Management tools

Using the right management tools is crucial for managing and optimising a multi-cloud environment. Centerprise will maintain tools to provide a single, unified view of all resources and services, regardless of the CSP.


When to optimise your cloud?

At regular intervals: Businesses should establish a regular review schedule, such as monthly or quarterly, to evaluate their cloud usage and costs. This allows them to identify trends or anomalies and adjust their strategy as needed.

After major changes: If the business undergoes significant changes, such as launching a new product, entering a new market, or experiencing a large increase in users or traffic, it's a good time to review the cloud optimisation strategy. Major changes can significantly impact cloud usage and costs.

Before and after migrating workloads: When moving workloads to the cloud or between cloud providers, it's important to review the optimisation strategy to ensure the workloads are configured for optimal performance and cost-effectiveness.

During budgeting and planning cycles: When preparing the annual budget or strategic plan, businesses should review their cloud optimisation strategy to ensure it aligns with their financial and operational goals.

When Service Level Agreements (SLAs) are up for renewal: This is a good time to review your cloud usage and negotiate better terms with your cloud providers.

When new cloud services or features are released: Cloud providers regularly release new services and features that could offer better performance or cost savings. When these are released, it's a good opportunity to review your cloud strategy.

In response to security or compliance issues: If the business experiences a security breach or fails to meet compliance requirements, it's critical to review and adjust the cloud optimisation strategy to prevent similar issues in the future.


Remember, cloud optimisation is not a one-time task but a continuous process that requires ongoing monitoring, management, and adjustment. The right tools and strategies can make this process more manageable and effective.
