The same for less or more for the same cost
Many organisations have adopted Public Cloud for their use for DevOps, production and DR workloads, some have made Public Cloud their primary delivery method.
As an organisation would you like to cut your costs for the compute side in Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure by 60-80%?
Would you like to do this with all your services delivered as before using the same compute services, but just cheaper?
Would you like to only pay a charge based upon the savings you make?
Elastigroup for AWS
Spotinst Elastigroup predicts EC2 Spot behaviour, capacity trends, pricing, and interruptions rate. Whenever there’s a risk of interruption, Elastigroup acts accordingly to balance capacity up to 15 minutes ahead of time, ensuring 100% availability.
This means that applications will always run on the most cost-efficient collection of instances – the best-priced and most available Spot Instances when available and falling back to on-demand when not, in addition to prioritising any reserved instances you may already own
Elastigroup supports the vast majority of common applications, automatically plugging into the architecture you already use (see use cases below). As long as your instance isn’t a single point of failure, you can utilize Elastigroup to start saving.
Elastigroup is tightly integrated with other AWS services including EMR, Auto Scaling, Elastic Beanstalk, OpsWorks, Elastic Container Service (ECS), EKS, CloudFormation, Data Pipeline and Batch, providing a wide variety of choices.
Elastigroup is designed to solve the endless Tetris game of heterogeneous compute environments running containers. Elastigroup integrates with the most powerful container orchestration platforms out there, such as AWS Elastic Container Service (ECS), Kubernetes, Rancher, Docker Swarm, Hashicorp Nomad, Mesosphere and more. Elastigroup finds the optimal distribution and deployment of multiple instance types into a one, single, powerful cluster as part of a container orchestration platform.
Some users of the service
“After evaluating the product we understood that Elastigroup was the nirvana we were looking for in managing our complex EC2 Kubernetes environments…”
Traiana a CME Group Company
In the end, Traiana was able to easily import their existing AWS Auto Scaling Groups into Elastigroup to take advantage on Spot Instances to reduce their operating costs by over 70%. Using the Elastigroup Terraform plugin, their developers did not need to make any changes to their workflow to start reducing costs deploying Cassandra clusters on Spot Instances. They are also currently working on their Terraform scripts to support deploying Kafka clusters on Spot. With the Spotinst Jenkins Plugin, they were able to improve their CI/CD workflow by having Elastigroup automatically spin up Jenkins Slave instances on Spot and scale the idle ones down as needed.
The Serverless Kubernetes Engine
Spotinst Ocean lets you reap the benefits of Kubernetes without worrying about infrastructure while gaining deep cluster visibility and dramatically reducing costs.
