AWS Compute Optimizer recommends optimal AWS Compute resources for your workloads to reduce costs and improve performance by using machine learning to analyze historical utilization metrics. Over-provisioning compute can lead to unnecessary infrastructure cost and under-provisioning compute can lead to poor application performance. Compute Optimizer helps you choose the optimal Amazon EC2 instance types, including those that are part of an Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling group, based on your utilization data.
By applying the knowledge drawn from Amazon’s own experience running diverse workloads in the cloud, Compute Optimizer identifies workload patterns and recommends optimal compute resources. Compute Optimizer analyzes the configuration and resource utilization of your workload to identify dozens of defining characteristics, for example, if a workload is CPU-intensive, or if it exhibits a daily pattern or if a workload accesses local storage frequently. The service processes these characteristics and identifies the hardware resource headroom required by the workload. Compute Optimizer infers how the workload would have performed on various hardware platforms (e.g. Amazon EC2 instances types) and offers recommendations.
A new compute engine that enables you to use containers as a fundamental compute primitive without having to manage the underlying instances. With Fargate, you don’t need to provision, configure, or scale virtual machines in your clusters to run containers. Fargate can be used with Amazon ECS today, with plans to support Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) in the future.
Fargate has flexible configuration options so you can closely match your application needs and granular, per-second billing.
AWS Compute Optimizer is ranked 12th in Compute Service while AWS Fargate is ranked 7th in Compute Service. AWS Compute Optimizer is rated 0.0, while AWS Fargate is rated 0.0. On the other hand, AWS Compute Optimizer is most compared with , whereas AWS Fargate is most compared with AWS Batch, Amazon Elastic Inference, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling, Apache Spark and Apache NiFi.
