Why Customers Should Care about Storage Optimization
Cloud spending, including cloud storage costs, is significant and material. The big 3 Hyerscalers have all announced multiple price increases over the last year, including increases to at-rest storage. According to Gartner, the vast majority of on-prem servers are overprovisioned by as much as 50%. Why carry this technical debt into the cloud and pay for it unnecessarily?  RiverMeadow’s Workload Mobility Platform provides Customers with an option to Right Size Storage as part of a migration project, saving material amounts of money.
