ProsperOps Releases Flex Boost to Increase and Accelerate Cloud Savings for Customers
Flex Boost delivers greater cost reduction by adding autonomous discount management for EC2 Standard Reserved Instances with a cash back guarantee
AUSTIN, Texas, March 16, 2023 (Newswire.com) - ProsperOps, the autonomous cloud cost optimization platform, has announced the launch of Flex Boost, a new EC2 Standard Reserved Instance (RI) management capability that delivers more savings, faster to Amazon Web Service (AWS) customers. As a component of the company's Autonomous Discount Management service, Flex Boost further increases the Effective Savings Rate (ESR) for customers while continuing to give companies the flexibility to scale usage up and down without the risk of over- or under-commitment.
ProsperOps' unique approach optimally blends the advantages of various commit discount instruments, which now include EC2 Standard RIs, to maximize savings while managing risk. Historically, ProserOps customers achieved ESRs of 45-50%, placing them in the 99th percentile of all AWS optimizers. Flex Boost increases that to 50-55%, meaning customers can now save more than half off their cloud compute bill, net of ProsperOps charges.
Flex Boost is also designed to create a powerful network savings effect for customers. As aggregate ProsperOps compute usage grows, Flex Boost customers save more and achieve higher ESRs, even if their compute usage is flat. Customers save more over time simply by being on the ProsperOps platform.
Flex Boost is backed by the Flex Boost Genuine Buyback Guarantee, the only guarantee to provide up to $250,000 in cash back for unwanted Standard RIs. In contrast, alternative services offer no buyback or service credits capped at the provider's charge. The Flex Boost Genuine Buyback Guarantee makes Flex Boost a no risk, no regrets decision.
"Our scale, automation, and ability to blend the unique benefits of Convertible RIs, Compute Saving Plans, and now Standard RIs allows ProsperOps customers to achieve net savings outcomes that exceed any alternative," said Erik Carlin, Chief Product Officer. "This is our biggest feature release since building out the core platform. ProsperOps already delivered industry leading Effective Savings Rates, and Flex Boost means customers will now receive even more savings back into their cloud budgets, right at a time when every dollar matters."
"Flex Boost is yet another demonstration of the advanced and sophisticated thinking and capabilities of ProsperOps. It really changes the game as it increases savings in a broader scope with huge flexibility," said Michel Zitman, Cloud Financial Management Practice Lead at Xebia, a global IT consultancy and AWS partner.
