Honeycomb.io provides an observability tool for introspecting and interrogating production systems, designed and evolved to meet the needs of platforms, microservices, serverless apps, and complex systems. Honeycomb.io is running Amazon EC2 M6g instances for their ingest worker test fleet. The entire transition process took about 15 hours by an experienced generalist systems engineer/SRE. Comparing to existing C5 instances, Honeycomb.io observed M6g instances to be superior in every aspect—they cost less, have more RAM, exhibit lower median and significantly narrower tail latency, and run cooler with the same proportional workload per host. Converting the entire ingest worker fleet to M6g instances has allowed Honeycomb.io to run 30% fewer instances, and each instance costs 10% less.

Jampp is a mobile app marketing company that helps mobile app advertisers acquire and re-engage their users globally. Jampp processes more than 2 million ad bid requests per second from 20+ different sources across the globe.
“We migrated several production workloads to AWS Graviton2-based instances, including the bidding service, data pipelines, databases, and internal tools. On average, we experienced 15% better performance for our workloads and a total cost saving of about 30% considering the lower per-instance cost and the fewer number of instances due to better performance. Our applications are primarily based on Python, Golang, NodeJs, and Docker. We use a lot of open-source software in Jampp, and we found that most of the services we used, such as Redis-cluster, Nginx, NodeJS, Prometheus, and Thanos, supported Graviton2 instances. The switch to Graviton2 was almost transparent in every case. We just needed some minor adjustments regarding dependency management to provision the corresponding Arm version of each tool. On average, it took us two weeks to migrate each workload to Graviton2 instances. We plan to move all our main services to Graviton2 soon, including EMR, TrinoDB, and several in-house applications."
