Illustrated newspaper 'StormForge Times' with front page article announcing Kumina partnership

StormForge, the leader in Kubernetes resource optimization, today announced their partnership with Kumina. The Netherlands-based company with over a decade of experience in providing mission-critical IT services will offer StormForge's Kubernetes resource optimization solution Optimize Live.

Together, Kumina and StormForge will provide Kubernetes users with an all-inclusive package comprising managed Kubernetes services and advanced optimization capabilities.

This partnership will help users enhance the performance and efficiency of their Kubernetes clusters, reducing costs and freeing up resources to focus on other aspects of their business. Consequently, Kumina's expertise in managing Kubernetes clusters with customized IT solutions will assist users in maximizing the performance of the optimization platform provided by StormForge.

Kumina's CEO Tim Stoop is enthusiastic about the benefits customers gain from integrating StormForge:

"I was impressed how Optimize Live has solved a whole class of customer issues with one solution, reliably and deterministically, while actually allowing resource usage to go down as a whole. We can help customers scale with confidence and cut costs with StormForge without sacrificing user experience. I am really excited about the potential that StormForge brings to the table."

Optimize Live

StormForge Optimize Live applies machine learning to existing Kubernetes metrics to make real-time, actionable recommendations to resource settings for any deployment running in Kubernetes. By optimizing CPU and memory settings, customers can save cloud resources and money, reduce the business risk of poorly performing applications, and get their developers focused on innovating, not tuning their Kubernetes environment. StormForge's Solutions Architect Niels Roetert expresses enthusiasm regarding the benefits afforded by the solution:

"StormForge Optimize Live provides Pod resource right-sizing and can set optimal TargetUtilisation values for Kubernetes HPA to operate on. It does so continuously and without any human effort (configurable) at large scale. This results in resource and cost savings most of the time, when beneficial, resources are actually added to facilitate a better performing and more reliable application, which is a win-win for the application owner either way."

About Kumina

Kumina supports its customers by a fully managed Kubernetes solution that includes consulting, training and unlimited support hours. The company focuses on enhancing the infrastructure and cloud hosting capabilities of its customers in order to improve the performance, reliability, and security of their IT systems.
