Amazon EC2 Optimization

Keep Your AWS EC2 Instances Risk-Free & Cost-Optimized

The Manual EC2 Selection Conundrum

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) is a powerful infrastructure-as-a-service solution that provides a broad set of instance types and offers tremendous flexibility with respect to how they are configured, used, and purchased.

Organizations often struggle to determine the optimal EC2 instance types to use for their workloads. Even though there are millions of ways to configure and purchase EC2, the decision of exactly what types of instances to buy is often made manually, imprecisely, and infrequently. This causes operational risks, poor instance utilization, and inflated bills.

Considerations for selecting the right EC2 instance type and configuration for your workload include:

Instance Family
Select between General Purpose, Compute Optimized, Memory Optimized, Accelerated Computing, and Storage Optimized families
Instance Type
AWS currently offers over 30 EC2 instance types and over 300 sizing options
Intel Xeon versus AMD EPYC versus AWS Graviton
Instance & Group Sizing
What is the instance or Auto Scaling group sizing needed to meet minimum service requirements?
Purchasing strategy
On-Demand, Savings Plans, or Reserved Instances
Custom Amazon Machine Instances (AMIs) versus pre-baked AMIs
Choice of Deployment Region and Availability Zone

Machine Learning Identifies the Best EC2 Instance Types & Sizes

By applying machine learning to this challenge, Densify is able to analyze workload patterns to precisely determine which instance types should be applied to each cloud workload. Using detailed supply and demand models, and applying benchmarks to all computations, Densify is uniquely able to generate advanced cross-family recommendations, while at the same time driving high levels of automation.

Densify is “Reserved Instances-Aware” and considers your standard RI coverage, protecting existing investments. If your instances have existing standard RI coverage, the recommendations will be deferred until the current RI expires.

Reduce EC2 Costs Through Next-Generation Automation

The process of optimizing the instances being purchased can be automated, replacing a tedious and error-prone task with a fact-based, API-driven process. Densify enables apps running in EC2 to become self-aware of their resource requirements, and can leverage Terraform templates to automate the process of moving workloads to the best-matched EC2 instance types and sizes. With this next generation of automation, time is saved, operational risk is reduced, and the alignment of workloads with the optimal instance types saves an average of 42% on your EC2 cloud costs.
