Our Story

We're a group of technologists and economics geeks who love solving problems and serving customers. Before founding ProsperOps, we started the AWS managed services business at Rackspace and grew it into one of the world's largest AWS Premier Consulting Partners and a leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant.

From serving thousands of customers, we saw firsthand the importance of cost optimization, but also how hard it is to master. We developed extensive experience with virtually every approach. Existing solutions either try to manipulate engineering resources, which introduce risk to the app, or provide passive reporting, which doesn't actually deliver a savings outcome. We came to believe that reserved instances, if managed correctly, are an appropriate savings tool for almost every cloud environment. But it's hard! DevOps and FinOps teams are smart—but busy—and in a world of increasingly complex and dynamic cloud environments, ongoing administration of RIs is operationally untenable (and frankly not that glamorous).

We knew there had to be a better way—so we started ProsperOps. We combine AI with sophisticated financial optimization algorithms to give you fully autonomous RI portfolio management. Simply put, we do the RI work and you get the savings. We want your business to prosper in the cloud—not only by saving you money, but also by giving you time back to focus on the important things.
