According to Gartner, “To fully reap the value of these new technologies, particularly those  deployed in the cloud, organizations need to pursue a DevOps approach to how they plan, build and run workloads.”

We believe, the vendors identified in this research have built products to solve customers’ challenges in accelerating scaling of cloud environments and in enabling adoption and operationalization of cloud-native platforms.

Now, you’re probably wondering why do we believe we are a Cool Vendor?

Well, Opsani is the only company that automatically and autonomously adjusts runtime configurations. Opsani is unique because we are cloud optimization 2.0. What we mean by this is other optimization companies simply give you recommendations on how to approve your application. Opsani actually implements these recommendations in real-time to keep your application tuned continuously. 

How do we do this?

Opsani uses a Continuous Cloud Optimization as a Service (COaaS) solution that autonomously tunes applications at scale. Opsani allows software organizations to maintain software velocity while automatically meeting application performance objectives at the lowest cloud cost. We autonomously remediate system misconfiguration to improve real-time performance and increase software reliability with the lowest possible operational costs. 

Why is this important to the cloud computing industry? 

The growing complexity of infrastructure and application architecture. Cloud infrastructure is getting more complex because the cloud and cloud services are relied on more than ever before. Application owners no longer control hardware or the placement of VMs. Essentially there is minimal control over applications. Simultaneously, the application architecture is getting more complex because we are writing more disparate services that talk through APIs. A particular service can talk to a handful of other services. It is challenging for a human to harmonize all services concurrently. This makes the need for artificial intelligence and machine learning paramount to cloud-native workloads and accelerating business drive. Opsani is the only company that does this. 

Why is Opsani needed in the cloud computing space?

There is a massive movement towards the cloud and cloud-native workloads. We have just begun this journey. This movement to the cloud is done principally to get more flexibility from infrastructure and the application architecture. If done correctly, flexibility translates to lower cost, faster delivery, and hopefully, higher software reliability. 

The market is just moving there; however, infrastructure costs go up more than they should, and application performance and reliability drop without the right tools. Given that the market is moving this way and in a meaningful, massive way, the market needs a tool like Opsani to autonomously and automatically help configure workloads. It helps enterprises save money and increase both performance and reliability. 

When measuring performance-per-dollar, Opsani customers can gain a 200% advantage. The typical Opsani customer maintains existing application performance while reducing operational costs by as much as 80%. If you’re not using Opsani, you’re wasting your money on the cloud, your developers’ time, and your application performance is not optimal.
