MILPITAS, CA, March 15, 2021 — ProphetStor Data Services, Inc. today announced the general availability of Federator.ai 4.4. Federator.ai, ProphetStor’s Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations (AIOps) platform, provides intelligence for orchestrating Kubernetes container resources on top of virtual machines (VM) or bare metal, allowing users to operate applications without the need to manage the underlying computing resources manually. Key features in the latest Federator.ai release include Spot instance recommendations for MultiCloud cost analysis and the support of metrics collected by Sysdig, a secure DevOps company that helps organizations secure containers, Kubernetes, and cloud services.
Utilizing metrics from Sysdig, Federator.ai provides AI/Machine Learning-based predictions for containerized application workloads and cluster node resource usages as the basis for resource recommendations to joint Sysdig and ProphetStor customers. DevOps no longer needs to monitor the Kubernetes cluster utilization constantly and manually adjust capacity. With resource recommendations from Federator.ai, DevOps can efficiently perform intelligent resource planning and significantly reduce over-provisioning costs. The application-aware workload prediction also enables Federator.ai to auto-scale application pods via extension API server, providing fitted resources for optimal performance.
“With the latest release of Federator.ai, Sysdig customers can enjoy the benefits of AI-based intelligent workload predictions using application and cluster node metrics from Sysdig. Joint customers can easily view the prediction results and recommendations from the integrated Sysdig dashboards, all from the same single pane of glass.” said Tad Lebeck, EVP of Business Development, ProphetStor. “Also, Federator.ai analyzes evictable application workloads and provides the most cost-effective Spot instance recommendations while maintaining required resources for these applications. This is a tremendous cost-savings for Federator.ai customers.“
“Organizations are moving to containers and Kubernetes to ship cloud applications faster. However, the dynamic nature of these environments can lead to gaps in visibility, which leads to poor resource planning. By integrating metrics collected by Sysdig, ProphetStor can help make organizations operating Kubernetes-based environments more efficient and cost-effective.” said Phil Williams, VP of Corporate Development & Alliances.
ProphetStor’s patented, Deep Learning enabled Data Correlation and Impact Prediction Engine (DCIE) forms the foundation for its Federator.ai. ProphetStor’s Federator.ai 4.4 is a generally available product from ProphetStor. For a detailed description of the solution, please visit https://www.prophetstor.com
