LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CloudBalancer for Red Hat OpenShift complements Red Hat’s enterprise Kubernetes platform, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. Intelligent auto-scaling for capacity management is the main feature of CloudBalancer. For any company using or intending to use Red Hat OpenShift on AWS, CloudBalancer is the perfect tool for:
- Enabling capacity to meet demand at all times, with minimal wasted capacity.
- Monitoring the health of the Red Hat OpenShift cluster.
- Enabling automated cloud bursting between private and public clouds when needed.
- Saving up to 80% on cloud computing costs.
- Providing metrics on cluster activity and cost savings.
“This product is more than just a tool for saving money for anyone running Red Hat OpenShift on Amazon Web Services (AWS); it’s also about providing something for the different mindset that is needed for running a company’s applications on the cloud.” said Conor Brankin, CEO of Crossvale. “The cost-savings are massive and customers managing an OpEx budget are very impressed at how much money is being freed up, but there are also positive ramifications that come from CloudBalancer’s levels of automation in other areas. The time saved for someone that might previously have been monitoring clusters manually can be used for more productive and higher-level tasks, so this product perfectly fits into an agile methodology.”
Head of Sales for Crossvale Europe, Mike O’Boyle adds “CloudBalancer for Red Hat OpenShift complements leading technologies from Red Hat and AWS very well. We can honestly say that we cannot come up with one reason why anyone that is running Red Hat OpenShift on AWS would NOT want to have it as the ROI on it can be immediate.”
The traditional way of enabling capacity to meet demand was to buy more on-premise computing power. However, on the pay-per-hour basis of cloud computing this means either wasted capacity or requiring manual intervention to bring capacity up or down to match the predicted demand. Whichever route is taken requires an OpEx budget expenditure. As CloudBalancer for Red Hat OpenShift can save up to 80% in cloud computing costs, based on Crossvale’s estimates, it is this bottom-line impacting aspect of the product that can make it quite attractive to those using Red Hat OpenShift on AWS.
The added benefit of monitoring the health of the Red Hat OpenShift cluster has implications for mission-critical applications as they can now be run on production environments in the cloud as well as with the flexibility of being able to burst to public cloud when needed. As a result, resources can be continually optimised at all times.
Crossvale, an award-winning global Red Hat partner that provides technological expertise and solutions that fix business challenges, showcased CloudBalancer for Red Hat OpenShift at the Red Hat Forum in London.
