Rightsizing your infrastructure pays off

 

DEPLOY THE RIGHT RESOURCES FOR YOUR WORKLOADS

Have you provisioned the correct assets for your workloads? Both under and overutilized assets pose a threat: overutilized can lead to poor customer experience, and underutilized leaves money on the table. Finding the right balance is key.

 

JAUNT SAVES THOUSANDS PER MONTH BY OPTIMIZING ITS ENVIRONMENT AND RIGHTSIZING WORKLOADS

I found some massively oversized instances which we were able to downgrade based on recommendations from CloudHealth…[it] showed I was spending $3,000 a month on hundreds of unattached EBS volumes.

ANALYZE PERFORMANCE AND UTILIZATION WITH PRECISION

To truly understand asset performance and utilization, you must collect, trend and report on both a granular and a macro level across CPU, memory, network, disk, IOPS, throughput, and more. CloudHealth ingests this data from disparate sources to correlate, analyze and visualize it.  Evaluate your cloud infrastructure based on application, workload, environment and more to better understand resource utilization and optimize performance.

LEVERAGE INTEGRATIONS TO DRIVE DEEPER UNDERSTANDING

CloudHealth connects to native services for performance data such as CPU and disk. To up-level your insight, connect the platform with performance management partners such as Datadog and New Relic, to obtain insights into CPU, memory, disk, and network performance data per asset.

GET ACCURATE RIGHTSIZING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR WORKLOADS

Evaluate utilization and efficiency across your cloud. Our platform’s powerful Rightsizing functionality and recommendations offer detailed insight into the performance of your AWS EC2 instances, EBS volumes, and Azure Virtual Machines.

The CloudHealth Rightsizing report presents overall efficiency scoring based on analysis of cost, performance, and utilization. The report makes specific recommendations on your assets that can be downgraded, without impacting performance. Identify zombie, or unused assets and terminate them.
