AWS has been on a mini shopping spree since the first of the year. First it picked off Israeli disaster recovery startup CloudEndure last week. This week, it was TSO Logic, a Vancouver startup that helps companies make the most efficient use of cloud resources.
The companies did not share the purchase price.
Amazon confirmed the purchase by email and referred to the statement on the TSO Logic website from CEO Aaron Rallo. “We are very pleased to share the news that TSO Logic will be joining the AWS family,” Rallo wrote in the statement.
The company takes data about workloads and applications and helps customers find the most efficient place to run them by measuring requirements like resource needs against cost to find the right balance at any given time.
They can even balance workloads between public and private clouds, which could come in handy with Amazon’s new Outposts product, announced in November at AWS re:Invent, that enables companies to run AWS workloads on-prem, as well as in the cloud.
