CAST AI has announced the launch of AWS EKS Optimizer to help companies cut Kubernetes cloud costs. Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) and Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) optimization solutions are already on the roadmap and coming in a few months.
Last year, CAST AI received $8 million of VC funding to scale its cloud optimization platform. The platform streamlines performance and optimizes the costs of running clusters in AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and DigitalOcean. Early users of CAST AI slashed their cloud bills by 52-84 percent. With some of CAST’s advanced setup features, savings have reached as much as 92 percent.
The EKS Optimizer is now available directly within the CAST AI platform. Following feedback from partners and customers, the solution should also become available on the AWS Marketplace in the near future.
By connecting existing EKS clusters in a read-only mode, users get instant savings reports and can identify opportunities for cutting costs. To proceed with full automation, users can set optimization policies and leave AI in charge of optimizing their cloud bill.
