What needed to be done

When Serbian game development company Nordeus came to us, they had an interesting problem - they have been too successful and needed to optimise their cloud spend for the rapid growth.

Thanks to the latest game releases, Nordeus cloud spend had almost doubled within the span of just 3 months. This unexpected increase in consumption prompted the company to look for a solution and we came to help.

Solution

After initial discussions with the customer, we did an analysis of their cloud environment. As it turned out, most of their spending has been done on compute instances not-so-optimal for their particular use case.

After presenting our findings to the Nordeus team, we agreed to optimize their setup based on our findings. We switched the instances for more cost effective versions in 1-year commitment, bringing the client a quick improvement in their monthly spending.

“Revolgy delivered a billing analysis document which included interesting findings and saving opportunities. Even though we were very tight, we still managed to save an additional 10% of our monthly cloud bill.”
