Optimize Your Amazon Reserved Instance Purchasing Strategy

Achieve Superior Results with Densify’s Multi-Pass RI Optimization

Avoid Fallacies in AWS Reserved Instance Purchasing Approaches

AWS Reserved Instances (RIs) are a useful tool for reducing your cloud costs by allowing you to commit to the use of resources in exchange for a discount. They are specific to a type of instance (and, optionally, an operational region), an act like coupons that you can apply to reduce your bill for that instance type.

Many organizations purchase RIs based on the instances that they are currently using, not the instances that they should be using. This means that they lock into the wrong configurations, which, ironically, can actually increase cloud spend and reduce agility.

Machine Learning Delivers Immediate Impact to RI Purchasing Strategies

Densify’s Cloud-Learning Optimization Engine—Cloe—performs deep, multipass RI analysis to determine exactly what you should be committing to, and what you should be buying On-Demand. This analysis is based on the optimized configuration for your cloud, not just the current configuration, enabling you to layer RI savings on top of the efficiencies created by pattern-based optimization. And, if you have already purchased the wrong RIs, Densify will analyze current coverage, expiry dates, and conversion strategies, to enable you to roll-over into a new set of RIs over time, immediately getting your strategy back on track.
