Given all the development work the Pelando team had on their plate, as well as the overwhelming amount of work that managing commitments would put on their one-person DevOps team, Pelando was eager to enable Flexsave as soon as they were onboarded to the DoiT platform. Once enabled, Pelando could sign a CUD with Google and started to see significant savings on their compute usage,.
This not only freed up funds for more development work and eased the burden on their DevOps team but also made them much more confident when signing their commitment with Google because they knew they could still get a discounted rate on any workloads not covered by their CUD. Without Flexsave, their DevOps team would have had to invest many hours each week on monitoring.
In addition to Flexsave, Pelando gets significant value from DoiT’s specialized support, as well as from other features within the DoiT platform. Reports and Attributions have simplified their cloud usage data and allowed them to identify which Pelando products are using specific cloud resources, which has made internal optimization initiatives around things like cloud egress and cache lookups much easier to complete. Meanwhile, specific cloud dashboards like GCP Lens and Pulse have allowed them to quickly determine which VM types work best for their environment, further enhancing their overall user experience.
