FinOps: Cloud & Container Financial Management for Engineers

Reduce Costs & Optimize Procurement

Enabling Engineering to Drive Significant FinOps Value

To truly optimize costs you have to optimize the resources used by applications. This cannot be done without the buy-in and action by the teams that manage infrastructure.

Densify uniquely enables engineering with the precision required to enable optimization changes at the infrastructure level.

Ensure Your Cloud Workloads Get The Right Resources

Our deep analysis of historical workload patterns and personalities always ensures your workloads get the resources they need without too much.

Rightsize cloud instances to mitigate risks and problems:

  • Oversized VMs are a common area of waste, particularly in cloud environments where self-service models allow users to determine allocations. Densify ensures that service levels are met according to policies and specifies exactly how much resource each workload requires so you can confidently reclaim and reallocate resources.
  • Underallocated VMs frequently encounter performance issues and need to be resolved but ensuring the right instance is purchased is critical to alleviate resource constraints without incurring unnecessary costs.

Collaborating with Platform & Application Owners

Each time Densify machine learning generates an optimization directive, an accompanying Impact Analysis and Recommendations Report is created specifically for application stakeholders and your Change Advisory Board. This report includes hard facts, analysis, and projections for effort level and impact that justify each recommendation.

Reports can be distributed automatically in a variety of ways, including by attachment to ITSM change tickets and through communication and business collaboration environments like Slack and Teams.

Empowering Engineers to Drive FinOps Collaboration

Autodesk

Densify…came up with the recommendation to optimize using an instance class that we had never even heard of…ultimately, we decided to implement the change, and as a result, we are more cost-efficient and our customer-facing metrics are completely unchanged
