TelcoDR has announced a new partnership with SaaS-based AWS cost optimization solution provider CloudFix in a move designed to help telcos drive down their AWS costs.

Led by renowned public cloud evangelist Danielle Royston, TelcoDR aims to help telecommunications providers transition to the public cloud. 

With its new partnership, the firm said businesses that purchase CloudFix via TelcoDR will now have access to exclusive pricing offers.

TelcoDR CEO Danielle Royston said the move will help telco companies maximize their savings and “unlock the full potential of the public cloud."

"CloudFix's laser focus on telco's largest area of spend, compute, generates monumental savings for our customers,” she said. “By liberating wasted spend, telcos can redirect these savings towards exciting new frontiers in the public cloud, such as our cutting-edge telco SaaS products under the Totogi brand."

Used by cloud operations teams around the world, CloudFix integrates with AWS environments to help for telcos, especially those with AWS expenditure exceeding $20 million, to achieve ‘significant’ savings.

Using automation-driven capabilities, CloudFix says it helps save 15% on AWS costs on average for each customer.
