Cibo Labs is an agricultural data analytics company that brings a completely new approach to monitoring Australia's grazing lands, underpinning more profitable farms and more sustainable landscapes. Cibo Labs needed to process Terabytes of data to map the pastoral landscape in Australia, and their existing on-prem system was not able to handle the load and became unreliable.
“We were able to get 50% cost savings compared to our on-premises systems by running our data intensive satellite imagery processing application on AWS Graviton2 based R6g instances due to their superior performance. Adopting AWS Graviton2 required no code changes and the price performance benefits will now enable regular updates and quick turnaround on future product enhancements.”

CleverTap is an omni-channel customer engagement and user retention platform that helps brands create individualized experiences, drive user engagement, and delight customers through intelligent mobile marketing strategies and mobile app metrics. They have delivered over $2 billion in incremental revenue across 8000+ mobile apps.
"As an omnichannel customer engagement platform, our Java based analytics workload is extremely parallel and distributed in nature. In an effort to enable a remote compute farm to spin up and spin down on demand, we wanted to utilise instances which offered us a balance of compute and network throughput. Graviton2 powered instances (M6g/R6g) offered us both, while lowering our EC2 costs by 50 to 70% over comparable x86 based instances. We've had a smooth transition to Graviton2 powered instances, within two to three months."

Domo is the fully mobile, cloud-based platform that modernizes how businesses run by leveraging their data at cloud scale in record time.
"The Domo Business Cloud is purpose built to serve the fast-paced data intelligence needs of today’s businesses. We adopted AWS Graviton2-based instances for our application servers, data pipeline systems, and Kubernetes clusters currently running tens of thousands of pods. In about one month, we were able to migrate more than 50% of our EC2 footprint. This has resulted in a substantial decrease in median execution times for many of our workloads, allowing us to reduce our affected Amazon EC2 spend by 20% from a combination of direct cost savings and performance-enabled scale down. We’re now actively looking to transition additional Kubernetes clusters dedicated to advanced analytic workloads, queueing system servers, database servers and more!"

When Redbox saw the AWS Graviton2 announcement they were keen to test the new Amazon EC2 M6g instances to see how they perform for this use case. Comparing m5.2xlarge vs m6g.2xlarge Redbox found the performance was almost identical but the M6g is 20% lower cost. Redbox is impressed that Graviton2 is trading blows with x86 in the server space.
Supabase is a YC-incubated startup that offers developers an open-source alternative to Google’s Firebase.
"At Supabase, we are always looking for innovative ways to boost performance and reduce costs to differentiate our offerings. We moved our Postgres and API server workloads to AWS Graviton2 based T4g instances from T3a instances and saw 28% better performance at 10% lower cost per instance. Adopting AWS Graviton2 was easy. It took just under a week with one lead engineer to run our workloads on T4g instances. Graviton2 based instances provide the ideal combination of superior performance and lower cost, and AWS is the only major cloud provider with Arm-based instances. We are looking forward to adopting AWS Graviton2 based instances for an even wider set of workloads to further improve the price performance of our workloads.”

"Supership enables enterprise digital transformation with one-stop solution for collecting, analyzing data scattered throughout the company, and automating them with AI technology. We had two major challenges in business - to reduce large number of lightweight web application infrastructure cost and to improve mass data processing performance. For lightweight web applications, we could see ~40% higher request-per-second performance at lower cost on m6g.large compared to m5.large. As mass data processing performance, we tested Elasticsearch7.3/OpenJDK11 workload on c6g.xlarge up to c6g.8xlarge and confirmed ~40% better price performance compared to C5 instances. Transitioning from x86 to Arm for CI/CD was easy. Most of processing systems could be built without any special effort."
