It’s time to go beyond legacy practices and solutions and deliver optimal performance-cost efficiency. Reducing infrastructure costs could be the solution to not only surviving but possibly thriving. However, existing cost optimization solutions have been widely adopted, and their value has been saturated. In recent years, a new frontier of cost optimization has emerged, focusing on optimizing resource management at the workload, instance, and application levels.
New software-based optimization approaches vary in balancing cost/performance tradeoffs and how easily they can impact compute efficiency. These new solutions tackle this fundamental problem from different approaches - matching demand and supply, optimizing configuration, and realigning resources based on the specific application load needs.
