By deploying our world class team of industry experts, we aim to educate our learners with the skills they need to advance their professional life to the next level.

 

Challenge:

Edureka, as an expanding e-learning platform, was grappling with increasingly significant AWS costs that were escalating each month, placing considerable strain on their operational budget. The primary drivers of these high expenses were tied to the extensive use of Amazon RDS (Relational Database Service), Elasticache, and EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) instances. These AWS services, while foundational to supporting the high traffic and data-intensive applications that Edureka relies on to serve educational content, were not being utilized with cost efficiency in mind.

The complexity of managing AWS resources efficiently often involves a detailed understanding of usage patterns which vary dramatically with student engagement throughout different times of the day and academic year. This dynamic landscape made it difficult for Edureka to predict and allocate resources optimally. As a result, they frequently faced issues with over-provisioned services during low-demand periods and under-provisioned services during peak times, each scenario leading to either wasted resources or compromised service quality.

 

Solution:

  • Wise Tuner: Edureka incorporated WiseOps’s Wise Tuner, a sophisticated tool engineered to fine-tune the settings of key AWS services such as Amazon RDS, Elasticache, and EC2 instances. Wise Tuner analyzes existing configurations and automatically suggests adjustments to optimize for both performance and cost savings. This tool allowed Edureka’s technical team to automate the scaling and management of AWS resources, ensuring that each service was configured to operate at peak efficiency.

  • Wise Manager Implementation: To further optimize cloud efficiency, Edureka implemented Wise Manager, a powerful component of the WiseOps suite designed to identify and eliminate underutilized or dormant “zombie” resources within their AWS infrastructure. 

    Unused volumes, obsolete snapshots, idle databases, and underperforming instances were identified and flagged for action within the AWS console, enabling informed decisions about resource retention or decommissioning.

Implementing WiseOps’s Wise Tuner and Wise Manager not only reduced our AWS costs by 33% but also transformed our cloud operations, making them more efficient and aligned with our growth objectives.

Outcomes:

  • Achieved a substantial 33% decrease in overall AWS cloud expenditures, thereby enhancing Edureka’s profitability.
  • Ensured the continuation of high availability and optimal performance, crucial for maintaining Edureka’s commitment to an exceptional user experience.

 

The deployment of Wise Tuner allowed for a refined, automated tuning process that dynamically adjusted resources in real-time, enhancing the platform’s operational efficiency. Simultaneously, Wise Manager played a crucial role in maintaining a streamlined cloud environment by identifying and eliminating underutilized or obsolete resources, which directly contributed to substantial cost savings.

This successful partnership highlights WiseOps’s commitment to delivering FinOps Automation that not only meet immediate operational needs but also support long-term strategic goals, making WiseOps an indispensable ally in cloud cost management and optimization.
