It analyses a business's system activity data, reviews CPU utilisation and hourly charges to help companies understand the elasticity and load on their cloud environment, reducing weeks of expensive manual investigation to minutes, the company said.
"There is a propensity in the market for businesses to be over-provisioned in their cloud deployment. Insights is designed to ensure companies only pay for the resources they need," said GorillaStack co-founder Oliver Berger.
Insights caters for companies of all sizes, he added, "from smaller organisations, which may have immature cloud setups, to larger businesses who are often prone to over-provisioning cloud services."
Insights is part of the broader GorillaStack service, which starts at $US50 a month and includes better control over AWS auto scaling, advanced scheduling for EC2 instances, alerts when billing thresholds are reached, and better control over team members' AWS permissions.
Insights is currently in beta, but is available to any GorillaStack customer on request
Berger told iTWire "As Australia's adoption of the cloud continues with great pace, it gives our great pleasure to announce the beta release of our Insights product in our home town at the Sydney AWS Summit. We're proud to be part of the growing tech community in Australia and look forward to working with more local companies on automating their DevOps processes and their cloud environments."
