Optimising the Cloud

Densifyhas launched what it says  the industry’s first cloud optimisation engine service supported by Cloe, a machine-learning based analytics engine.  Dedicated to bringing cloud costs down and under control, Densify enables applications to be self-aware of their resource needs.  Cloe beta customers are now saving an average of 40% on public cloud costs, with some exceeding 80%.

Application demands can fluctuate every day, hour, and minute of the week. In parallel, cloud offerings, such as a compute instance even from a single vendor like AWS can have millions of permutations. It’s impossible to align application needs with the cloud technologies available while optimising each pound spent. Cloe analyses cloud usage patterns, enabling Densify to proactively make applications self-aware of their resource needs – matching application needs to available cloud resources. Unlike traditional cloud tools that focus on the bill but don’t fix the underlying issue, Cloe goes to the heart of addressing the problem at the application and infrastructure layer.

“While applications perform an infinite number of critical tasks, they aren’t resource-smart and they are often allocated massive amounts of unneeded public cloud resources,” said Gerry Smith, CEO, Densify. “Cloe becomes the resource intelligence of an application, allowing that application to be self-aware of its resource usage patterns and to perfectly re-align public cloud use to its needs. Now all of these applications are resource-smart, forever optimised and our customers’ cloud spend is plummeting as a result.”

According to a recent Gartner report “Cloud services can have a 35% underutilisation rate in the absence of effective management, as resources are oversized and left idling. As an organisation grows in its use of public cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS), its ability to monitor, manage and optimise those resources in a cost-effective manner often falls to keep pace”

Product benefits include:
  • Immediate savings and results in the first 48 hours of deployment
  • Multicloud support – applications are provided the right resources even when simultaneously using multiple cloud vendors; Cloe recommends the best cloud technologies for the given application
  • Delivered completely as a service, there are no manuals to read, no software to install or additional staff to hire
  • Improved application performance with dramatically less cost
