In previous blog posts we’ve discussed the challenges organizations face in choosing the right cloud instances, and how understanding workload patterns is critical to right-sizing public cloud instances for optimal CPU and memory efficiency.
In this post, we’ll look at a key aspect of instance selection that plays a critical role in optimizing AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud spend:   modernizing your instances.Modernizing public cloud instances is the act of moving from an existing type of instance to a newer version of that offering. Newer instance types are often hosted on newer hardware, which typically offer higher performance and better processing power. Just like on-prem virtual environments, more powerful hardware enables you to get more bang for your cloud resource buck. Our experience has shown that when you both modernize and right-size your instances, cost savings average 41% — approximately double the savings that right-sizing alone delivers.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
