Our team of A-players has doubled to perfectly optimize the growth, and we are eager to reach new heights this year together with both the partners who have been with us since the beginning and the new partnerships we initiated in 2023.

Kubernetes Carbon Mission Visibility

What is the Carbon Impact of Kubernetes? With tightening carbon emission regulations in Europe and North America and an increasing number of enterprises striving to reduce their overall carbon footprint, PerfectScale has introduced a new feature for Kubernetes environments to track and reduce carbon emissions.

This tool is designed for AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform clusters, providing immediate emissions tracking upon deployment. It takes into account node types and geographic locations to accurately assess carbon emissions. Take a look at this podcast, where PerfectScale's CEO Amir Banet explains why reducing the carbon footprint of Kubernetes clusters is becoming a higher priority as organizations become more concerned about climate change. Tune in here! 

For more details, you can read the full announcement here.

Revision-aware optimization

The optimization update addresses the complexities of optimizing Kubernetes environments, especially in the context of rapid deployment and continuous changes.

Revision Aware Optimization feature offers a detailed view of workload revisions over the last 30 days, enhancing the understanding of release impacts on cost and resilience. Importantly, it integrates with the PerfectScaler, which autonomously right-sizes workloads. Unlike traditional solutions that rely solely on historical data, PerfectScaler's revision-aware approach considers both past data and current revisions, ensuring safer and more effective workload adjustments.

For more details, visit PerfectScale's blog post about revision awareness.

Alert Customization

To reduce alert fatigue, we allow you to build customized “Alert Profiles” to ensure you are only getting notified about the issues that matter the most to you.

Slack Notifications

You can easily connect alerts to a Slack channel via a webhook or a Slack token. The Slack notifications give you an overview of the issue and a link that will take you directly to the application, so issues can be quickly evaluated and resolved.

Observability Integrations

To help you better analyze the health and costs of your workloads and the recommendations we provide, we allow you to connect our solution directly with Trends.

Idle Costs Trends

From this year on, you can see “idle costs” when running a cost report that is stacked by either workloads or Namespaces.  Idle costs represent spare cluster capacity on top of what was requested by particular workloads. With this comprehensive view, you can better access the efficiency of your environment.

Jira Integration

PerfectScale's Jira integration streamlines the process of implementing the PerfectScale optimization recommendations. With a single click, a Jira ticket can be created and triaged to the appropriate team with details on the issue and exact instructions on how to resolve it.

PerfectScale’s platform is built to provide granular insights into the health, stability, and cost-effectiveness of your Kubernetes environments. That’s right, not only can you secure that your K8 clusters are perfectly scaled, you will save some big bucks too!
