The Akamas team was invited to present our AI-powered performance optimization technology during the London Edition of the Performance Summitpowered by Facebook. Giovanni Gibilisco, Akamas Head of Engineering, demonstrated our novel approach to IT stack tuning: Autonomous Performance Optimization.

In this talk:

  • We pinpoint the key challenges of the increasing IT stack complexity;
  • We show that automation frees performance engineers from tedious, time-consuming tasks;
  • We share a customer case study where we integrated Akamas with open source monitoring and load testing tools, to improve a core online service;
  • We explain how we obtained higher throughput by 23% using 35% less memory;
  • We describe how we reduced response time degradation at peak load from 11 to 7.5 seconds.
