New CopperEgg Cloud Sizing Tool Helps Enterprises Choose the Perfect Amazon EC2 Instance

New CopperEgg Cloud Sizing Tool Helps Enterprises Choose the Perfect Amazon EC2 Instance

Analyzes Over 200 Possible Combinations to Recommend Best Match Based on Real Server Benchmarking

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 04/16/13 -- CopperEgg Corp., a leading cloud monitoring and analytics company, today announced a new Cloud Sizing Tool that accurately benchmarks enterprise and cloud servers to help customers choose the proper Amazon EC2 instance types, pricing, and Elastic Block Storage (EBS) configurations from over 200 possible Amazon Web Services (AWS) combinations. Businesses can save money and ensure application performance by using the Cloud Sizing Tool to rightsize instances during cloud migrations, resize existing EC2 instances, and avoid over- or under-provisioned cloud resources. CopperEgg will demonstrate the Cloud Sizing Tool at the AWS Summit 2013 in New York City on April 18 and at the Opsode #ChefConf 2013 in San Francisco.

"The cloud sizing report gives us a better way to measure server usage," said Jonathan Marbutt, Vice President of WayCool Software. "By changing cloud providers and switching to AWS, we were able to reduce cost by at least 30 percent, plus gain more powerful servers in the process. Our app response time has also improved."

The Cloud Sizing Tool, based on a proprietary CopperEgg server benchmark derived from industry standards, accurately measures CPU, memory, storage, disk IOPS, and network I/O metrics. Unlike typical benchmarks which run pre-canned load tests and provide inaccurate application usage patterns, the CopperEgg Cloud Sizing Tool uses Real Server Benchmarking to analyze performance against the actual customer's environment of inputs, outputs, and production application usage gathered over a full 24 hour duty cycle.

With over 200 potential combinations of AWS EC2 instance types, pricing options, and EBS storage configurations, the Cloud Sizing Tool provides specific recommendations, itemized for each user in a customized Cloud Sizing Report, that maps the server-specific benchmark measurements to the appropriate Amazon EC2 instance types and EBS storage configurations. These reports include per server-detailed averages and 95th percentile averages for CPU, active memory, used storage, disk throughput, disk IOPS, and network I/O. The recommended EC2 instances also detail the related costs per hour, per month (Reserved Instances), or per month (on-demand). The Cloud Sizing Tool is available today and is included free with all subscription levels of the CopperEgg cloud monitoring solution.
