Benchmarking Instances for Cost and Performance

1.7 million. That’s how many permutations of an Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2 instance that are possible, according to Gartner Research. That’s a lot of room for a wrong decision. Thankfully, public cloud customers aren’t left to decide on their own, that’s where benchmarking comes in.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

- From General Purpose to Accelerated Computing to Compute or Storage Optimized, learn about types of Instances
- Which tools are available to benchmark cost and performance
- How to ensure the right sizes of the right resources to eliminate waste

  • How Public Cloud and Automation are Making an Impact in Government Recorded: Dec 7 2017 60 mins
    Phil Bertolini, CIO, Oakland County, Michigan; Jeff Kushner, CMO at Allgress; Patrick Gartlan, CTO, CloudCheckr
    For some government agencies that are just starting their cloud journey, the road ahead can seem daunting. It’s a stark contrast from the old way of buy IT, one that allows agencies to invest in technology as a service rather than accumulating more hardware and software.

    But cloud adoption doesn’t happen in a vacuum. There is a lot of preparation and planning to decide what your IT environment will look like post-cloud migration and into the future. One of the topics that’s being discussed among agencies is how to automate processes once they’re available in a cloud environment. That can add yet another wrinkle to the complexities of cloud.

    But the long-term benefits often outweigh the short-term challenges, experts argue. That was the topic of conversation at GovLoop’s recent online training, “How Public Cloud and Automation Are Making an Impact in Government.” The panel included Phil Bertolini, CIO and Deputy County Executive of Oakland County, Michigan; Jeff Kushner, Chief Marketing Officer at Allgress; and Patrick Gartlan, Chief Technology Officer at CloudCheckr.
