Zesty, a pioneer in dynamic cloud infrastructure solutions, today announced that it has partnered with skyPurple Cloud, the public cloud operations specialists for enterprises. With Zesty, skyPurple Cloud's customers have already reduced their average monthly EC2 Linux On-Demand costs by 44% on AWS.
While cloud spend continues to increase, growth has reportedly slowed as companies remain cautious during economic uncertainty. In order to reduce cloud costs, many organizations depend on developers to constantly monitor and manage EC2 resources and cloud spend manually rather than overprovision and commit to a long-term discount plan.
skyPurple Cloud empowers businesses with support solutions for public cloud implementation. As part of its tailor-made approach, skyPurple Cloud customers employ Zesty's technology to optimally scale and automate cloud operations to drive sustainable growth and cut costs. Within the first month of implementation, skyPurple Cloud customers noticed a significant increase in service quotas for Amazon EC2 instances and saved developers considerable time and money by automatically handling quota requests on customers' behalf.
"Particularly during such a challenging time for so many, skyPurple Cloud understands how crucial it is for businesses to maintain performance and reduce costs," said Maxim Melamedov, CEO and co-founder of Zesty. "Companies are no longer able to ignore overspending and settle for suboptimal rates for their cloud resources. EC2 instances quickly become very expensive to run and companies must ensure that more of their workloads are covered by discount programs that will dramatically push down this cost premium. We're thrilled that skyPurple Cloud is helping its customers to stay cost-efficient by implementing Zesty."
"skyPurple Cloud plays a key role on the path to achieve cloud optimisation in the UK market," said Lucia Meyassed, Global Partner Manager Team Lead at Zesty. "We're excited to see its customers already saving a great deal in the cloud with Zesty and look forward to enabling even more UK-based organisations to maximize their cloud savings potential."
"At skyPurple Cloud, we know the substantial value automation tools hold for companies when it comes to optimally managing cloud infrastructure and the costs that come with it," said Roy Long, founder of skyPurple Cloud. "Zesty is the gift these companies have been waiting for – delivering cost savings in just a few days and significantly decreasing monthly AWS bills."

Coveo (TSX:CVO), a leader in AI platforms that transform digital experiences with intelligent search, recommendations, 1:1 personalization, and merchandising, today announced that Canadian customers can now access the Coveo Relevance CloudTM on the AWS Canada (Central) Region.
By leveraging the AWS Canada (Central) Region, a cluster of several data centers located in Montreal, Coveo will enable customers with data residency preferences (regulatory, compliance or other) to securely store data in Canada. Local AWS infrastructure facilities mean that customers can do more in terms of running mission-critical applications that need the lowest possible latency, and benefit from more flexibility.
“More than 12 years later, it's clear that AWS was the right choice for Coveo. AWS now offers many managed services that we leverage in our infrastructure. It speeds up development and enables our people to focus on delivering values and not maintain the base services or the infrastructure. AWS has been a great collaborator over the years and provided support and guidance in many ways,” said Marc Sanfaçon, Co-Founder and SVP of Technology at Coveo.
“AWS technology makes it easier for us to scale up capacity to meet increasing demand. And their robust infrastructure, distributed data centers and failover features allow us to maintain near perfect uptime on our critical services which translates into better uptime and lower latency for our customers,” said Sanfaçon.
Coveo developed its multi-tenant search infrastructure on AWS in 2011, resulting in increased agility, rapid innovation, the ability to expand into new markets and to scale up to support a growing demand. Coveo supports all of its global customers with its cloud infrastructure.
“As Canadian businesses adopt cloud and AI solutions at an accelerated pace, they’re looking to get more from their data, faster,” said Eric Gales, Country Director, AWS Canada. “The Coveo Relevance CloudTM AI platform, combined with AWS, will help Canadian businesses optimize costs, increase agility, innovate faster, and do more with data, while keeping it in-country.”
“As a provider of legal services, it is crucial to ensure that our clients' data is protected and compliant with Québec data privacy regulations,” said Dave Hinse, Director of IT and Information Security at CAIJ. “The importance of data residency in Québec lies in the province’s legal framework and data protection laws, which require organizations to store and process personal information within Québec's borders. By choosing to leverage Coveo’s services from the AWS Region based in Québec, the CAIJ can ensure that our clients' data is secure, accessible, and meets regulatory requirements.”
Coveo is currently available in seven other AWS Regions around the world including Europe, the United States, and Australia. Coveo AI-powered Search is now available in the AWS Marketplace.
