Amazon Web Services has made quite a few acquisitions in the first weeks of 2019. Last week it started with the takeover of the Israeli startup CloudEndure. This week, TSO Logic, a startup from Vancouver, will take over to help companies use their cloud as efficiently as possible.

The companies did not disclose the acquisition price used. Amazon confirmed the acquisition by e-mail to the TechCrunch site and then referred to a statement on the TSO Logic website, where CEO Aaron Rallo writes briefly about the acquisition.

TSO Logic and AWS

We are very happy to share the news that TSO Logic is joining the AWS family, says Rallo in the statement. Since 2012, our team has worked continuously to build an analytics solution that helps our customers to plan, optimize and save money on their cloud activities. Together with AWS, we can take our mission further and simplify cloud planning and IT transformation.

TSO Logic uses data on workloads and applications and then helps customers find the most efficient place to run them. It does this by looking at different requirements, including the need for resources and the associated costs. The balance between the two should help to find the right place for data.

Optimize workloads

TSO Logic is one of many startups to help you find ways to optimize cloud workloads. After all, more and more companies are switching to the cloud and are placing more and more workloads there. This makes it more complicated to find ways to cut costs and ensure that cloud adoption doesn’t get out of hand.

Tools such as TSO Logic’s are designed to help customers pay attention and use their cloud services as effectively as possible. Not only AWS now owns this service, Microsoft already took over Cloudyn, which offers similar services, in 2017. The intention is that TSO Logic will continue to exist as it is today, with the company’s employees being integrated into Amazon.
