Distributed Systems Optimization

Avoid consumption and extra costs associated with changes in IT and improve its performance and customer service with a correct distributed systems optimization strategy

Distributed Systems: the challenges of constant change

Large companies with midrange systems face major challenges for optimization due to differences in scalability between on-premises and cloud systems, performance requirements, security and flexibility.

  • On-premises systems with long-term purchases where performance is not controlled
  • Uncontrolled growth
  • Partial monitoring, not aimed at efficiency, only availability
  • Outsourcing of equipment without operational control
  • Absence of cost measurement and control
  • Service problems resolved in costly and inefficient war rooms due to lack of visibility
  • Cloud migration plans without prior optimisation

In this scenario, it is difficult to integrate all the elements and there is a greater propensity for errors, which affects the efficiency and general performance of distributed systems, causing an increase in associated costs, worse service and inefficient solutions. An appropriate strategy for distributed systems optimization is necessary.

Distributed Systems optimization and cost saving

Optimising systems allows you to have control and guarantee the efficient operation of your company through centralised observability and end-to-end traceability.

By having a sufficient degree of observability, you will be able to conduct cost optimization in middleware, based on the knowledge of the calculation formula given by the technical parameters and associated with the business KPIs. At Orizon, we improve the performance of distributed systems by working to analyse and reduce the consumption of services and processes in different technologies (Java, .net) and improve access to databases (Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, DB2).

Improving the service and response times in Distributed Systems

Our Distributed Systems optimization service, supported by our BOA platform, analyzes 100% of the technical elements, acting on those that offer the highest ROI.

Evaluation of coverage

The first step is to evaluate the degree of coverage of the current monitoring, in order to understand if the information being generated is sufficient to measure the performance of the applications and generate proactive alerts.

Root cause, triage and improvement actions

With the right visibility in all the architectural layers and end-to-end traceability, our multidisciplinary team of distributed systems performance analysts analyses the root cause of problems that generate slow response times, triaging them and proposing actions to improve them.

Analysis of the dynamic performance of the software

The optimization of costs and the improvement in response times is achieved by working on the existing software and its changes. To do this, we monitor 100% of changes on a daily basis through BOA, and analyse changes in the dynamic behaviour of the software, taking action in the early stages of production, mitigating the associated effects and costs.

Benefits of optimizing Distributed Systems performance with Orizon


Up to 40% savings in CPU consumption

Savings on your bill by optimizing software and access to databases with high consumption. We will analyse the billing formula to reduce it by detecting those elements with the greatest impact.


Improved operational efficiency

When generating performance problem alerts, proactive observability reduces the noise down to just the critical ones and minimises the time needed to identify the element causing the problem.


End-to-end observability and traceability

Traceability between all the layers of the architecture, from the user view to the backend, identifying the element and root cause of problems.


Shorter MTTR (Mean Time To Repair)

Proper monitoring of the architecture and an agile alert system for problems can lead to significant cost savings (up to €1.5m or more in large installations), as the MTTR and triage time to identify the element causing the performance degradation will be reduced as a result of end-to-end traceability in the installation.


Improved user experience

The optimization of the response time for the services associated with the business, reducing bottlenecks, improves the user experience when using the applications through the different channels.


Higher software quality

Control and monitoring of the dynamic quality of the software delivered by the development teams and suppliers. This provides a complete, unified and detailed view of the operation of the applications and their impact on the business.


Lower use of resources by increasing the available capacity

Optimizing distributed systems saves resources and directly increases systems capacity allowing you to add more products and services into the business.


Performance culture

Acting on these focal points will allow you to implement a performance culture in your company, involving all your teams in order to have an optimised installation, based on excellence and continuous improvement.

Why Orizon?

Our efficiency standard presents a differential model that, beyond detecting errors or inefficiencies, provides solutions and recommendations to achieve total efficiency.


Our tool.

BOA goes beyond the concept of monitoring or observability, as it offers global visibility, the detection of performance improvement opportunities, resolution and the measurement of any technology infrastructure in production. All of this through significant KPIs for the business associated with both cost and service.


Our methodology.

DevPerOps is a non-intrusive and independent correction and management methodology, which is built into your organisation’s life cycle, adding the performance layer that DevOps needed.
