Microsoft Azure customers worldwide now gain access to OptScale to take advantage of the scalability, reliability, and agility of Azure to drive application development and shape business strategies.
Hystax announced the availability of its flagship SaaS product, OptScale, in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store providing applications and services for use on Azure. OptScale customers can now take advantage of the scalability, high availability, and security of Azure, with streamlined deployment and management.
Hystax’s OptScale is a FinOps enablement platform that helps organizations navigate cloud cost management by engaging and educating the entire team, including engineers. Using Microsoft Azure and Kubernetes technology, a single OptScale dashboard can help engineers and FinOps teams visualize dozens of cloud cost optimization scenarios, analyze resource usage patterns, and work efficiently as a whole. This empowers customers to make data-driven decisions and build an efficient cloud usage experience for increased business performance.
“Our mission is to assist companies in building a culture of responsible IT workload usage by providing all necessary instruments in one product and educating teams how to efficiently use clouds and containers,” said Nick Smirnov, CEO at Hystax. “OptScale enables users to get the first optimization results in 20 minutes without any long configuration process and deployments.”
Hystax is inspired by the FinOps culture and focuses on helping companies accelerate FinOps adoption by engaging engineering teams in optimization and cost-saving processes. OptScale provides the engineering team with cost transparency and thus encourages them to take responsibility and optimize their cloud usage.
Navigating cloud cost management has become a daunting task for most companies today. As Kubernetes technologies become popular, Hystax has increased its focus on algorithms to analyze Kubernetes environments. With OptScale, companies get a clear picture of spending on K8s resources, achieve cost optimization goals, maximize application performance, and find cost-savings opportunities.
