As a rapidly expanding online gaming company, Gaming Realms continuously spin up new bits of infrastructure and add services onto their AWS. With the in-house development team focused on improving their service offering, optimisation and management of the account often fell by the wayside in favour of improving service delivery.
When they needed additional compute in isolation to provide web services, Gaming Realms engaged Rebura to provide Cost Optimisation services on their AWS account, which was billing circa $15,000 – $20,000 per month.
“Having fully handed things over to Rebura, we’ve made significant time and monetary savings.”
Rebura implemented its Cost Optimisation Suite to help Gaming Realms identify areas in which their AWS account could be performing more efficiently. As part of this audit, Rebura:
“We first engaged Rebura to provide consolidated billing and cost optimisation for our infrastructure and later expanded their role to include support for issues our technical team lacked the expertise to resolve.”
