AWS customers know that they’re receiving top notch service and the ability to scale their applications automatically and effortlessly. However, many are unaware that there’s a simple, cost-effective strategy for AWS users to double the performance of their applications with Granulate.

The Growing Challenge for Linux-Based Applications

Businesses are looking for any opportunity to reduce their costs, now more than ever. A primary focus for these companies is cloud infrastructure, as these systems are often inefficient and rarely optimized to perform at scale. Unfortunately, this situation is proving quite costly, in the area of millions of dollars for many enterprises. 

Despite these concerns, DevOps teams are using tools that are insufficient to resolve these inefficiencies, or worse, investing in no optimization tools at all. 

As of now, Linux, as a cloud computing operating system, leaves a lot of room for optimization. There are no dedicated Linux-based automated solutions accelerating cloud computing and optimizing resource allocation. 

Intel Granulate as an Autonomous, Continuous Optimization Solution for Linux

Granulate is a holistic solution that brings with it opportunities for optimization from:

  • Visualizing application utilization
  • Optimizing application performance on Linux
  • Kubernetes orchestration, pod rightsizing to combat over-provisioning

The Granulate solution begins by verifying the potential performance improvements of customer services, using the continuous profiler. This tool is offered freely and is open-sourced, and provides a picture of the status of application utilization and where it could be with the use of Granulate.

An open-source, continuous profiler for production – across any environment, at any scale.

With a single command, and no code changes, the AWS customer integrates the Granulate solution. Users can immediately see the significant improvements to their clusters’ performance, enabling them to do much more without increasing their pre-allocated services. 

Granulate’s unique technology, in concert with AWS, has already saved global companies countless hours of response time and dollars spent on compute:
