Kubernetes Optimization Platform Wins Best Environmental or ‘Green’ Use of the Cloud

Cambridge, Mass., February 7, 2023 — StormForge, the leader in Kubernetes resource optimization, today announced it has been named winner of the Best Environmental or ‘Green’ Use of the Cloud this week by The Cloud Awards, the international awards for cloud computing.

Using patent-pending machine learning, StormForge reduces cloud costs by right-sizing customers’ Kubernetes application resources, automatically and continuously. By reducing CPU and memory usage, in most cases by 50% or more, StormForge helps customers significantly reduce the carbon footprint of their cloud native applications, whether running in the cloud or on premises.

John Platt, Chief Technical Officer of StormForge, said, “Efficient resource utilization is extremely difficult to achieve in a cloud native world, resulting in failure to meet environmental and sustainability goals. We’re proud of the work we’ve done to make efficiency automatic and continuous, and we’re thrilled to be recognized for our innovation to reduce carbon emissions resulting from cloud waste.”

In its twelfth year, The Cloud Awards categories include ‘Best Software as a Service,’ ‘Best Place to Work in the Cloud,’ and ‘Cloud Project of the Year.’

Head of Operations for The Cloud Awards, James Williams, said, “The Cloud Awards experienced fierce competition in its twelfth year. All chosen winners demonstrated remarkable commitment to the future of cloud computing, worthy of being acknowledged and celebrated.

“StormForge is an admirable winner of The Cloud Awards as their solution takes the industry a step forward. There were many innovative solutions among the finalists, but StormForge’s solution proved to the judging panel it was a clear choice for selection as the Best Environmental or ‘Green’ Use of the Cloud.”
