Atlassian

Atlassian went through an intense period of growth and its cloud infrastructure became increasingly complex. This meant maintaining optimal RI coverage at scale was a key challenge. To maximize RI coverage, Atlassian adopted the Cloudability Platform to create a "waterline" of when RI coverage becomes high enough to yield significant savings. Atlassian took a goal of 90% coverage on their aggregated RIs. They used this waterline report to achieve savings as their cloud usage scaled.

The power of setting your usage rate in Cloudability is that you are in control of the recommendations Cloudability provides. This includes setting the trigger point on which you purchase RIs for your Amazon EC2 instances. We use this feature to validate the RI purchases Atlassian makes. This assists Atlassian in maintaining an RI utilization at or above 90% so we achieve great savings.

As soon as it’s set up, you have immediately all the CloudCheckr security recommendations. The cool thing is it gives you a checklist, and this is combined with reporting functionality, and you can prioritize security problems and say yes, we definitely need to work on this problem first.
