Google Cloud Platform Optimization
As with most of the largest cloud computing services platforms, many companies are either experimenting with or already deployed in Google Cloud Platform. Rapid consumption increases are not uncommon or unheard of, and keeping cost under control proves very difficult. Especially if you don’t have a clear plan from the get-go.
Many organizations start with dipping their toes in the water, and then onboard larger applications to these cloud platforms. Unfortunately, many don’t start their journey by thinking of how you can keep your cost under control. This is usually done after the fact, when it is becoming difficult to make lasting change without having to re-apply a lot of settings.
GILAS is expertly suited to help you with your consumption optimization challenges.

Most important GCP optimization tips
Google offers tools to setup your environment correctly, but it is still difficult to stay on top of your cloud consumption. Setting up good FinOps practices like tagging and billing accounts are key for getting costs under control
We advise you to check your consumption month over month, identify large changes and see and understand where they come from. Have clear ideas on where you might expect growth. Understanding your bill is key to know where you might need to look for potential optimizations.
Understanding how this model works (as it differs to AWS and Azure) might help you in reducing your cloud consumption costs.
GCP offers some tools to do proper FinOps and help you to give recommendations on programmatic savings, so invest time into these tools.
We have no other interest, than your interest
The annual growth rate of cost spend on cloud computing services is growing exponentially year over year. Not understanding where your costs come from and what you can do to reduce these, will severely impact your budgets. Any savings you can create will help you to invest in new innovative technologies instead of wondering why moving to the cloud isn’t cheaper than you had envisioned. We at GILAS have expert consultants that carry out correct FinOps practices and are ready to support you!
