Bust the Ghost VMs in Your Cloud Closet

We all have free and available resources lurking in our infrastructure, though sprawl reduces efficiencies, and many resources are "technically” being consumed by “ghosts” and zombie machines. But don’t worry, you don’t need a proton pack to effortlessly find and zap them into oblivion. Join us in this session to see how you can easily hunt for and bust these phantom and often-forgotten VMs, right-size your memory and CPU settings, and more. We’ll also discuss how you can prepare your workloads in preparation to float them from on-premises to the public cloud, and then see how much they're costing you – all before you get a ghastly bill.
