Newvem Announces AWS Utilization Heat Map

Newvem Announces AWS Utilization Heat Map 
The Utilization Heat Map Offers an Intuitive Glance Into AWS
Utilization in Order to Get the Most Out of Cloud Resources 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/13/13 --  Newvem
(http://www.newvem.com), the leader in cloud operations analytics,
today announced the launch of their AWS Utilization Heat Map. This
dynamic and intuitive view enables AWS users to identify fixed vs.
variable capacity, make better capacity planning decisions, and
identify and move consistent usage to a cheaper plan, such as AWS
Reserved Instances or hybrid clouds. 
Newvem has tracked more than $200 million in Amazon Web Services
(AWS) EC2 spend in 10 months. Over this time period, the company has
revealed that more than 15% of their AWS cloud users suffer from
significant underutilization, representing more than $30 million in
potential waste. Furthermore, 80% of AWS users could reduce AWS costs
by moving highly utilized EC2 on-demand instances to Reserved
Instances.  
Utilization is the most important measurement in cloud computing to
ensure that purchased resources, such as AWS EC2 on-demand instances
and AWS Reserved Instances, are used efficiently, in line with the
underlying reason to use a public cloud for lift and burst workloads. 
The Utilization Heat Map offers a quick glance into AWS utilization,
enabling cloud users to see their utilization over the past 30 days
across regions, availability zones, business activities and more. An
active feature within Newvem Analytics free and premium editions, AWS
users can use Newvem's Utilization Heat Map to: 


 
--  Increase utilization/scale up to meet peak hour demand with available
    capacity before provisioning more capacity i.e. scaling out.
--  Visualize AWS utilization by specific business activities, such as
    R&D environment, specific products, and segmented customers.
--  Identify consistent usage and move it to a cheaper plan (such as
    Reserved Instances or hybrid clouds).

  
"Newvem's Utilization Heat Map is a very helpful feature that allows us
to see the peak hours of our usage and to drive more workloads to
resources that are underutilized. The heat map is an easy way to get
a brief and insightful glance on my utilization over the past 30 days
