Realizing that Time-Consuming Manual Reviews Cannot Address Cloud Complexity

The operations team at MetroStar Systems, a longstanding Turbonomic customer for their on premises infrastructure, was under executive direction to reduce their AWS bill. The operations team turned to Turbonomic to reduce cost - fast.

The team had already suspected that many of their current instances were not on the proper storage tier, but found the manual review and execution of AWS Trusted Advisor cost suggestions to be too complex and time-consuming.

TURBONOMIC AUTOMATED STORAGE TIER OPTIMIZATION REDUCED AWS SPEND BY 25% WHILE IMPROVING PERFORMANCE AND ENFORCING BUSINESS POLICY COMPLIANCE

After turning to Turbonomic, the MetroStar team got the results they were looking for, instantaneously. By automating Turbonomic AWS storage tier optimization recommendations, they rapidly saw a 25% reduction in their monthly spend. Furthermore, they continue to see improvements around performance and policy compliance as Turbonomic continues to automate the environment in the background. The team has begun to take cloud instance sizing recommendations with approval and expect to save an additional 30% on their AWS bill.

With Turbonomic IT operations assumed responsibility for 12 new customer environments without having to grow the team.

Metrostar Responsibly Migrates More Customer Environments to AWS

Soon after implementing Turbonomic for their AWS environment, the operations team was given ownership of a dozen customer environments which needed to be migrated. Turbonomic enabled the team to quickly analyze potential migrations between these estates and AWS, and execute these migrations without impacting performance and while abiding by business compliance policies. Turbonomic migration planning reduces time, uncertainty, and eliminates risk from the equation by rapidly recommending the optimal AWS resources on which to run. With Turbonomic the operations team assumed responsibility for these environments without growing the team.

"Turbonomic is absolutely one of our mission-critical tools, and I would definitely recommend this product to anyone - onpremises in the cloud, or in a hybrid environment. It saves us thousands of dollars in the cloud every month."
