Welcome to the VMblog 2022 Mega Series where we'll be covering a number of important topics throughout the coming months. In this series, you'll be hearing from the industry leaders and experts in order to help you make important decisions within your own organization. Follow along for a chance to better understand a number of topics and find out more about some of the best technologies available out there in the industry.
In today's Q&A, we're speaking with industry expert, Patrick Bergstrom, CTO at StormForge. And we're diving into the topics of Kubernetes and DevOps.
Who is StormForge?
At its core, StormForge is a team of world-class data scientists, machine learning experts and seasoned DevOps engineers. This unique combination has resulted in innovative products that drive significant operational improvements for cloud-native environments, through better application performance and more effective resource utilization at scale.
What value do we provide?
Our team has direct experience with the complexity of enterprise Kubernetes apps and their impact on manageability, operating costs and emissions. Much of the complexity has to do with the inability to understand Kubernetes infrastructure resource behavior and the actions required to optimize these resources.
Most organizations can’t address the problem because it’s very hard to solve - due to the number of container variables that need to be tuned simultaneously. Instead they overprovision CPU, memory and other resources as a way to avoid performance or scalability issues - which can get very costly when you’re provisioning hundreds or thousands of containers.
StormForge uses machine learning to drive automation and facilitate intelligent action to solve complex operational problems, optimize infrastructure usage and maximize energy efficiency. We’re able to take valuable data that’s already being gathered from observability platforms and transform it into intelligent action that helps organizations optimize resources and make smart trade offs between performance and cost - at any scale.
What sets us apart?
What does our ecosystem look like?
StormForge’s open integration approach is designed to fit into your cloud-native ecosystem. Our open platform works with any Kubernetes cloud service, any Kubernetes management platform, any CI/CD tool, any monitoring / observability solution and any codebase.
