AWS re:Invent, the largest cloud event of the industry, is happening right now! This year Nirmata is proud to be a sponsor and exhibitor at AWS re:Invent. If you are at re:Invent, come see us in the startup area, booth K9.
Over the last few years, it has been fascinating to see the change, both in audience and content, as cloud services have become the mainstream across all enterprises. This year, Nirmata will be highlighting a real-world customer case study of how Nirmata can optimize infrastructure usage and save 60% on AWS costs.
We’ve previously blogged about how Microservices style applications can enable agility at scale. But it may not be obvious that Microservices style applications, deployed in containers, can offer greater resource efficiencies and provide substantial cost savings!
Here’s how it works:
One of the key constraints of a Microservices style application architecture, is that each service is designed to be independently elastic and resilient. Once you build in service resiliency, why not take full advantage of it and leverage dynamic infrastructure like AWS spot instances? AWS spot instances can be 90% cheaper than on-demand instances, but can disappear at any time. This has prevented adoption of spot instances for mission-critical applications. That’s where Nirmata comes in…
Nirmata constantly monitors and optimizes application containers across cloud resources and manages application availability on any cloud. Working with our customers, we have built several features to optimize service deployments across pools of resources, including a mix of AWS on-demand and AWS spot instances, and still meet minimum availability requirements. Nirmata’s built-in Microservices Infrastructure components seamlessly updates service runtime state across hosts, and provides dynamic service discovery, load balancing, and routing.
Together this powerful, and unique, combination of features make Nirmata the ideal platform for running dynamic applications on dynamic infrastructure! Nirmata’s customers enjoy fully automated container lifecycle management, and costs savings, without having to deploy and operate complex tooling.
If you are at re:Invent, we would love to meet you and show you what Nirmata can do. Come see us at Booth K9 in the startup area! If you are not at re:Invent, feel free to reach out any time to discuss how Nirmata can help with your containerization and Microservices journey.
