The Challenge

Ancestry has more than three million paying subscribers and a collection of over 20 billion records. The company moved its operations to the cloud to enable it to scale with its customer base and implemented CI/CD processes to facilitate rapid feature rollout. However, with rapid growth in both its user base and the range of products it provides, Ancestry was hard-pressed to ensure that it was achieving optimum performance, efficiency, and customer experience with its cloud applications. Ancestry was looking to:

  • Successfully implement cloud cost optimization
  • Improve performance predictability
  • Determine efficient runtime settings
  • Protect and improve user experience
  • Expedite new code releases

The Opsani Solution

  • Superpowers to securely test the performance and efficiency of trillions of potential cloud application runtime settings while automatically deploying optimal configurations
  • Confidence in knowing their applications are running at the highest performance and at the lowest cost.
  • Loyalty from happy customers!

Early results demonstrate:

  • Up to 230% performance per dollar gains
  • An average of 50%+ in cloud cost reduction
