DevOps Best Practices Video

Leverage the Best Technology Available from Your Favourite Public Cloud Vendor(s)

Should you try and migrate to a newer instance type or is it better to stay on the current one? What are the factors of successful modernization and the common pitfalls leading to failed change requests and optimization roll-backs? In this 20-minute demo we explain how to make use of the advanced technologies available in the newer instance generations. You will learn how to:
  • Navigate across different families and generations in your Cloud Provider’s catalog
  • Safely modernize to gain benefit from advanced processor features and increased performance of newer CPU platforms
  • Understand impact of the way ephemeral storage is being included in or excluded from newer instance generations
We also cover how Densify can help you strategically and automatically map your workloads to the latest offerings to take advantage of performance and cost improvements. Qualifying organizations can even get their use of Densify completely funded by Intel.
