Cloudability Expands Partnership with
July 11, 2018
has made a new addition to its partnership with Atlassian with the
launch of its Jira Rightsizing integration. Jira Cloud can now receive
Cloudability’s cost-saving rightsizing recommendations directly through
Jira workflows, enabling DevOps teams to integrate cloud spend
optimization into their processes.
Companies are struggling to control cloud costs with underutilized cloud
resources accounting for billions of dollars in public cloud spend.
Industry research has found that “without cost optimization” businesses
could be overspending by more than 80 percent. A proven way to slash
these costs by as much as 20 to 40 percent is by rightsizing cloud
instances. Without the right tools, rightsizing can be time-consuming,
tedious, manual and error-prone work due to the vast amount of raw data
that needs to be processed and analyzed.
"Wouldn't it be great if instead of having to pull data out of
Cloudability, put it in a spreadsheet, then paste data into separate
Jira issues assigned to different teams responsible for managing cloud
spend, we could just use a Jira Software app integrated with
Cloudability?” said Atlassian. “Your team should talk to Atlassian's
SaaS partnerships team about that. We (and a lot of your other
customers) would use that app!"
data science and machine learning capabilities empower DevOps teams with
deep, actionable insights and visibility into cloud usage and spend in a
precise, accurate and timely manner. The Rightsizing Recommendations
Engine uses statistical modeling and risk measurement algorithms to
provide multiple recommendations sorted by the instances that would
deliver maximum savings for the organization.
Given the ability to act on Cloudability recommendations within Jira's
workflow, teams can quickly and efficiently collaborate around cloud
resources and rightsizing recommendations.
“Our rapidly-growing customer base really loves our public cloud
Rightsizing Engine due to how we have applied machine learning in this
area,” said Matthew Scott, VP of Strategy and Alliances at Cloudability.
“We’re lucky to have Atlassian not only as a client but as a partner
collaborating on this integration. Atlassian’s feedback and investment
help speed up how quickly and efficiently our joint clients can begin
