Virtana announced the immediate availability of a free version of Virtana Optimize, its cloud optimisation solution. The Free Tier offering complements the Premium version of Virtana Optimize, allowing for frictionless customer adoption.

It lets new customers self-service onboard and immediately gain access to the benefits of bill analysis, cost vs utilisation, rightsizing, and idle resource recommendations. One Virtana Optimize customer reduced their cloud costs by 30% after just 10 days of use. Free Tier users can connect one cloud provider data source and will be provided with up to 25 recommendations. 

IDC‘s research shows that across all industries, cloud services represent an increasing share of enterprise digital infrastructure utilisation,” notes Mary Johnston Turner, IDC research vice president for the Future of Digital Infrastructure Agenda research program. 

Mary continues, “Many organisations struggle with the cost and complexity of ramping up new services while still supporting existing mission critical applications and workflows. Taking advantage of freemium solutions for evaluating infrastructure cost tradeoffs is one way organisations can get started on this transformational journey.”

The Virtana Optimize Free Tier offering gives new users a way to try out the solution to gain visibility into current cloud costs, understand jumps in spend, detect unexpected changes, and identify potential savings opportunities within a single cloud environment. The solution provides ongoing cloud cost optimisation with a unique focus on performance, risk, and cost.

  • Cost Savings Dashboard
  • Cost vs Utilisation Reports
  • EC2/VM Right Sizing Recommendations (Top 25 Only)
  • Idle Resource Report Recommendations (Top 25 Only)

“Everyone is thinking about getting to the cloud but more than 70% of companies are not sure how to get there cost-effectively,” says Alex Thurber, CRO for Virtana. “This Free Tier will help people who may have gone into the cloud without a clear plan find their way to cost savings and smarter configurations.”
