Definitely worth it
It is super easy to set up and use. The documentations are good. The saving on bandwidth is significant. There is no reason not to use it.
JPEGmini works flawlessly for Cloudinary's needs
JPEGmini server is straightforward to set up, works very fast, and delivers results as expected. At Cloudinary we have 100's of clients using the service simultaneously without any issues.
It would be nice to have more monitoring options (Cloudwatch or other) built in, but they were pretty easy to set up once the server was up.
