How We Helped This CEO Reduce Cloud Expenses

3 min readAug 18, 2023


Our Client, the CEO of a Mid-size business was looking for ways to reduce his cloud expenses. He had been using a traditional disaster recovery (DR) solution that involved running two data centers, but this was very expensive. He only deployed software twice a year, so he didn’t need a DR solution that could recover his data instantly.

We recommended that he switch to a cloud-based DR solution. This would be much more cost-effective, as he would only need to pay for the resources he used. We also recommended that he use a “pilot light” DR strategy.

This means that he would only have a small amount of infrastructure in the cloud, which would only be activated in the event of a disaster. This would be much cheaper than running a full pair of data centers, and it would still be enough to get his business back up and running quickly.

The Client Company was skeptical at first, but he agreed to give it a try. We helped him to implement the new DR solution, and he was very pleased with the results. He was able to save a significant amount of money, and he was confident that his business would be protected in the event of a disaster.

The Benefits of Cloud Disaster Recovery

Cloud disaster recovery offers a number of benefits over traditional DR solutions. It is more cost-effective, scalable, and reliable. It is also easier to manage and maintain.

Here are some of the specific benefits that the Client experienced:

  • Cost savings: The company was able to save a significant amount of money by switching to a cloud-based DR solution. He was only paying for the resources he used, which was much less than the cost of running two data centers.
  • Scalability: The cloud is very scalable, so the company was able to easily increase or decrease the amount of resources he used as needed. This was important for him, as his software deployments were only twice a year.
  • Reliability: The cloud is highly reliable, so the business was confident that his data would be safe in the event of a disaster.
  • Ease of management: Cloud DR solutions are typically much easier to manage and maintain than traditional DR solutions. This was a major factor for the CEO, as he did not have a lot of IT expertise.

Cloud disaster recovery is a cost-effective, scalable, and reliable way to protect your data. If you are looking for a way to reduce your cloud expenses, then cloud DR is a great option.
