Optimizing deployment units of enterprise applications

  • Finding the right way to deploy software components of distributed systems
  • Reducing the deploymnet planning and ensuring fast continuous delivery
  • Optimizing resource usage, system performance as well as operations costs

DUO supports performance engineers and IT operations at finding the right way to deploy software components of distributed systems. It recommends deployment topologies to ensure efficient resource usage and, consequently, optimal system performance and operation costs. DUO also allows for reducing the time of finding deployment topologies and ensuring fast continuous delivery.
In particular, DUO uses a performance model generator to create models from a running applications. These models are used to simulate different performance metrics. Afterwards, DUO selects an optimized topology for a specified workload and considers minimal response time for an optimized user experience and maximal resource utilization for cost-effective topologies.
