OneUptime takes back its servers and saves $352,500 a year with Canonical infrastructure solutions

Migrating to bare metal infrastructure using Canonical’s open-source technologies slashed OneUptime’s cloud costs by over 76%

OneUptime provides a many-in-one server and data monitoring and management service for its customers. Its open source design and scalability made it a strong alternative to other single-service providers – but there was one catch: its services relied on AWS. When clients had concerns about AWS downtime affecting their systems, OneUptime began looking for ways to become a truly independent monitoring service.

The answer it found was as simple as it was effective: a migration to bare metal infrastructure using Canonical’s Kubernetes and Ceph distributions. Thanks to its investment in its own server infrastructure and adoption of MicroK8s and MicroCeph, OneUptime has taken back control of its services, reduced its reliance on third parties, streamlined operations, and cemented customer faith – all while saving over a third of a million dollars.

Migrating to bare metal infrastructure using Canonical’s open-source technologies allowed monitoring services provider OneUptime to have greater control over its infrastructure and services – while saving over 76% of their cloud costs and opening up its budget for more hiring and growth operations.

Read the case study to learn how:

  • Moving from AWS to bare metal saved OneUptime $352,500 a year, or around 76% of their total cloud costs.
  • Open source technologies, like Kubernetes, Helm, and Ceph, gave a fast, high-performance, and easily managed way to offer data reliability and hosting.
  • The move improved stability and performance and gave OneUptime confidence to offer full data ownership and server independence to clients.

“The benefits have been astounding. Transitioning to bare-metal servers has provided us with dedicated resources [… and] complete control over our hardware, and this autonomy allows us to fine-tune our servers to meet our specific needs, optimising performance and efficiency. We can customise every aspect of our infrastructure, from the operating system and network architecture to the type and amount of storage used. […] It’s honestly magical, I’m not sure how [Canonical] did it.”
– Nawaz Dhandala, Founder and CEO of OneUptime.
