Although, for many, the rallying cry for the move to cloud computing is cost savings, yet unless actual cloud costs are understood and managed, is entirely possible to lose money in a cloud environment. Cloud Financial Management, FinOps for short, is the inclusion of financial accountability in operational practices. Understanding the variability and source of cloud costs allows teams to make appropriate business trade-offs between speed, cost, and quality.

When you use Facebook, Microsoft 365, Dropbox, Flickr, or Google search, you are not just using a cloud service, you are using Software-as-a-Service or SaaS. SaaS is by far the most prevalent cloud computing service model. The SaaS model delivers software functionality over a network (typically the internet) on a provider-managed system. Service models are a way to differentiate between the types of services being delivered by a cloud system.

Docker containers produced a seismic shift in how applications are built and managed. They vastly simplified the implementation, and thus accelerated the adoption of containerized microservices application architecture. Containers are now readily accepted to run mission-critical applications to increase speed, reliability, and availability. However, containers on their own are in simplest terms a means of process isolation.

It’s the worst kept secret in Silicon Valley: when it comes to the valuation and fundraising prospects of your business, few things matter more than margin. But more often than not, founders and executive teams stare right passed amazingly accessible opportunities to tune up their margins and shift the business into a higher gear.

Modern applications are constantly changing, evolving with new requirements and exist in an environment with varying demands on resources. Scaling an application can appropriately size it to resource demands to ensure happy customers and reduce infrastructure costs. If you don’t know how to scale efficiently, you are not just doing a disservice to your application, you are putting unnecessary stress on your operations team.

Kubernetes is correctly considered a container orchestration engine, but this characterization often results in a focus only on its ability to specifically manage applications. This overlooks its powerful ability to also automatically and dynamically scale your infrastructure to meet the effects of changing user demands on application loads. As this ability is not enabled by default, you will have to activate the Kubernetes Cluster Autoscaler function to do this.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a compelling system that allows organizations to take advantage of a wide range of cloud services. AWS provides integrated visibility into infrastructure costs and lets users explore the usage of their resources in their application. Autoscaling, the automated process of increasing or decreasing your AWS managed resources provides one way to adjust a cloud system to better match load and save money.

When customers tune their applications manually, they only see improvements typically between 10-20%. This is also the result of months of work. You either need someone who has the skills to tune your application or you're looking at additional months of a person simply trying to acquire these skills. Keep in mind applications are constantly changing, making it impossible to maintain.

Pavel ,our product development engineer, explains how Opsani examined applications that were tuned manually versus tuned with machine learning. For true optimization, settings and parameters need to be optimized that don’t make sense on paper. Machine learning tries different configurations that do not make sense to humans.

Every cloud owner cares about spending less on their cloud infrastructure while increasing the efficiency of the applications for better user experience. This is a trend you will find with ever cloud owner and though some users do not under the importance of an application being optimized, they sure benefit greatly from it. In the video below, you will learn why optimizing is so difficult and how we make it easier than ever.

Are there any easy wins when it comes to optimizing your cloud? When looking from application to application, there is no set rule of thumb on what parameters should be set too. However, if we were to look at cloud applications as a whole, there are parameters that we have noticed are very common. To learn more about what those parameters are, check out the 2-minute clip below!

For good reason, all organizations want to optimize their applications. However: 99% of performance tuning efforts fail. If they ever even begin. Why?

Optune Continuous Optimization AI is the quickest, easiest way to make your cloud applications run faster and more efficiently.

Optune learns how your application performs and automatically optimizes your cloud infrastructure any time a change is made. Changes such as releasing new code, new instance types from your cloud provider, or heavier user traffic will trigger Optune to adjust. Optune cloud optimization continuously works to meet your key performance metrics bound by your Service Level Objectives.

Optune is AI for Continuous Performance Optimization of cloud applications that works on AWS, Azure and the Google Cloud Platform. It reduces latency, increases throughput and controls cloud runtime costs automatically:

  • Latency: Reduce application latency up to 50% without changing your code to maximize user satisfaction, reduce churn and boost revenue.
  • Throughput: Double bandwidth or requests served with the same number of machine instances to accommodate a growing user base.
  • Cost: Control runtime cost while maintaining or increasing performance of your application to improve margins and the bottom line.

Achieve optimal performance for every release with AIOps Powered by Optune.
