If you don’t know what your workload is doing during the day, you can’t choose the right resources to meet its needs. Densify offers deep intra-day workload pattern analysis, which is essential for right-sizing cloud instances. Right-sizing within the same instance class typically yields a 15–20% reduction, but Densify also enables you to modernize instances and move instance classes, which enables 35–40% savings.
Densify uniquely normalizes workload patterns using benchmarks to accurately compare detailed configurations and performance characteristics of the hardware underlying the different instance classes. This enables Densify to compare and safely recommend instance class changes such as swapping c3.xlarge for c4.large instances—that means more opportunity for optimizing your workloads and lowering your cloud costs.
Key to right-sizing and modernizing is understanding and leveraging your reserved instances. Your Cloud Advisor will work with you to co-relate your right-sizing and instance modernization opportunities to your reserved instance schedules. They will also recommend optimization strategies for leveraging reserved instances to minimize your costs while ensuring your apps still get the service levels they require.
