cloud spend optimization

How do I improve the cost and performance of an app on the cloud?

This is a common question that DevOps engineers hear daily. Manually tuning apps is no longer scalable, and they need a solution that is quick and efficient. This is where an integrated cloud spend optimization and cloud performance optimization platform comes into play. 

Cloud Optimization is an additional layer on the CI/ CD pipeline. It’s the third essential phase of the pipeline to achieve maximum efficiency by reducing cloud cost while maximizing application performance. This is done with the AI continuously finding the most optimal configurations and autonomously applying them, resulting in boosted cloud app performance and improved overall cloud performance optimization of the application sans human intervention.

How does cloud optimization improve app performance?

As code is sent out, the Opsani engine measures the cloud app performance of the new code while observing the measurements and comparing it to the metrics of the performance of the previous release. Based on these measurements, prediction adjustments to the configurations are made to improve app cost performance. These adjustments are then executed by the AI technology.

After the configurations and measurements are captured, a test is done for comparison to other configurations. Other metrics are then compared to the prior history of the application. Next, a cycle of prediction is created to determine what adjustments are needed next for the application to reach maximum potential and implement even further cloud spend optimization.

How is this done?

We tune our performance by adapting to the changing code, infrastructure, and middleware libraries. This can only be done by adding cloud optimization as the essential final stage to the CI/CD pipeline. Contrary to DevOps, performance tuning and cloud spend optimization is now part of the timeline.

The key overall benefits of cloud spend optimization are the reduction of costs, improved app performance, and optimization of critical business metrics. Our research shows that  cloud optimization reduces cloud spend by 50-70%, while unlocking a 210% increase in cloud performance. 

Cloud spend optimization is necessary for elite application management and performance.
