Extending AWS-Native Cloud Capabilities with TD SYNNEX and CoreStack to Help Optimize Cloud Operations
The cloud has become integral to modern businesses, providing unprecedented scalability, agility, and cost-efficiency. Learn how AWS Partners TD SYNNEX and CoreStack worked together to introduce an innovative solution based on the AWS Well-Architected Framework and CoreStack’s AI-powered NextGen cloud governance and FinOps capabilities to help customers optimize their cloud costs and improve overall cloud operations.
Ness Digital Engineering works with organizations to ensure AWS infrastructure supports strategic initiatives. In this post, we outline an approach for enterprises seeking a mechanism to align cloud costs with their business value. We’ll discuss various change management challenges that such efforts may encounter and share ways to address them, and explore how a robust FinOps function can solve chronic issues that plague cloud cost management at large enterprises.
Kubernetes provides several autoscaling features that enable organizations to dynamically adjust their application resources in response to varying demands, but optimizing Kubernetes costs can be challenging. Learn how optimization tools like Karpenter and StormForge Optimize Live help organizations automate resource allocation, optimize performance, and reduce costs, thus making the process of cost optimization more accessible and efficient for anyone.
Optimizing environments for cost, however, is often an activity that happens only in response to unexpected growth of charges in the bill. nOps nSwitch makes this process easy, allowing both engineering and finance teams to explore, identify, and automate optimization opportunities. Learn how nOps’ integration with Amazon EventBridge helps customers to pause, reconfigure, and right-size a broad variety of popular AWS services so they can tune for the most optimal cost while maintaining reliability and security.
Over the years, Ganit has successfully deployed business intelligence systems on AWS with a data lake and data warehouse at the core. This system has helped many of Ganit’s clients reduce more than 25 million hours in the creation of reports and spend more time driving action to improve top- and bottom-line numbers. Learn how one of Ganit’s clients in the financial control division of an Indian subsidiary of a large apparel manufacturer was tasked to optimize expenses across divisions and ensure functions operate efficiently.
Organizations realize they will need to understand their carbon footprint across the whole supply chain of their products and services to improve energy efficiency. This post introduces you to the Contino Sustainability Dashboard, a new open-source tool that helps customers visualize and identify opportunities to make decisions that will optimize the efficiency of their resource utilization and the overall carbon footprint within their AWS environment.
Event-driven architecture makes building cloud applications easier, especially applications required to create, detect, consume, and react to multiple events in real time. Learn how DXC Technology helped a customer in the energy industry collect and push events from electricity meters using event-driven architecture. When application complexity increases, this event-driven approach provides better scalability, fault tolerance, and faster development.
A New Strategy for Savings: Distributed Spot Orchestration for Amazon EKS in Harness Cloud Cost Management
Successfully operating any workload in the cloud requires careful attention to cost optimization, and there are various benefits to running your applications on Kubernetes. Learn how the Harness Cloud Cost Management solution reduces waste with full automation and cost transparency using Cluster Orchestrator for Amazon EKS. Harness is an AWS Partner and modern software delivery platform that uses AI to simplify your DevOps.
Small and mid-sized utilities have challenges within their vertical stack to commercialize and operate energy products such as power and gas. An efficient utility billing system allows providers to track and monitor the utility services they offer, manage billing processes, collect data, and engage well with customers. Learn how AWS and Accenture collaborated to build a vertical solution called Uptility for utilities in regulated markets, and how Uptility provides needed capabilities at low cost.
As the adoption of Amazon EKS for running Kubernetes clusters grows, customers are seeking ways to better understand and control their costs. To address these customer needs and shed more light on EKS costs, AWS has collaborated with Anodot, an AWS Partner that uses machine learning to autonomously monitor and alert on costs in near real time, and provides recommendations to help customers quickly resolve cost anomalies.
