Innovative Sourcing Approaches

Application Workload Sourcing

A new approach to sourcing, application workload sourcing features a purpose, multiple tiers of importance, performance, and resilience requirements. With this business model, the workload is optimized based on consumption, performance, behavior, and economic modeling. RampRate recommends a pragmatic architecture to run applications to support current and future needs and creates accurate future state cost, risk, and performance scores.

Cost-Of-Compute Sourcing

RampRate believes a cost-of-compute model delivers a truer economic model. An “all in” cost-of-compute dollar figure is used to reflect true costs. The figure changes based on the infrastructure services consumed in running applications and on the infrastructure costs.
