March in review: Exploring AWS RI best practices and investigating EC2 instance families
This month, we had the opportunity to explore how Atlassian puts AWS Reserved Instance best practices to use with Cloudability. We also investigated the differences and cost implications between the t2.large and m4.large EC2 instances, and celebrated a nice local win for Cloudability being named one of the Top 100 Businesses to work for in Oregon.
Understanding Reserved Instance buying by example
We shared Atlassian’s experience in using Cloudability to create what they call their “Reserved Instance water line”. This concept helps Atlassian make confident choices in their long-term RI buying in order for them to achieve maximum profitability and AWS cost efficiency.
Check out the article for the details.
Which EC2 instance fits best?
Our team explored the nuances and cost efficiency differences between two similarly specced AWS EC2 instances: the t2.large and m4.large. Read the article to see what we found out about the two and which development and engineering scenarios might fit each best.
We made the 2016 list of best companies to work for
Cloudability is one of the best companies to work for in Oregon in 2016, according to the Oregon Business Journal. We’re very thankful to make the list and continue building and fostering a great place to work, learn, and grow.
Until next time!
We’ve got a lot brewing for the Spring on all fronts. We’re also looking for new people to help us spread the word about better cloud cost management and show companies how to succeed with our tools. Check out our jobs page to learn more about our sales and customer success openings.
