Challenge


Despite the promising growth and outlook for migration to the cloud, the complexity and lack of adequate clarity into the costs of cloud infrastructure deployment present a serious challenge for businesses making or facilitating such a transition.

‘Cloud waste’ or sub-optimal utilization of cloud resources is another major pain point, preventing businesses from deriving maximum ROI on their cloud spend.

Suggested Solution


Cloud Comrade had been on the lookout for a more effective solution and a reliable partner who could help navigate the dynamic future of cloud management to jointly deliver even greater value and a better cloud experience for their customers.

The overall value of Alphaus’ solutions and support, with the ability for bespoke integrations to the financial services system, were key considerations for Cloud Comrade to switch to Alphaus’ products as critical components for its business operations. It also provides greater insight and control around cloud costs. These tools are integral to our operations and in use 24/7.

Verification Process


Alphaus provided a 2-month long validation process to try out their solutions, Ripple and Wave. The verification was to confirm the accuracy of the automated billing amount.

During the verification process, we had an opportunity to share our business needs and suggestions for features development to further improve the solution.

We knew that by automating the billing process and reducing cloud procurement cost would be a big advantage for us. We then presented it to management for approval.

Effects after Introduction


Bespoke integrations to the financial services system.

Cloud Comrade now has complete clarity on all the costs associated with the cloud infrastructure but are also making optimum utilization of any cloud resources deployed.

Going Forward


We are comfortable sharing the challenges our team is facing and new feature requests with the Alphaus team. They have been very responsive and accommodating to our needs so that we can continue to add value to our customers.
