Mitch and April’s personalities and skills were a great fit for our physician community at Athens Regional Medical Center.
CLICK IT, a Saxon Global company did a great job finding resources to help support our clinical system implementation this year. The product we implemented is not widely used so the talent pool was somewhat scarce. We also experienced many last minute system changes that threw everyone a curve, but they were great at helping us overcome the challenges.
CLICK IT, a Saxon Global company delivers results. They were easy to work with and helped us fill our positions in a timely manner with the utmost professionalism.

Billy WardSenior Management at Aspect
To be honest, I typically try to avoid working with staffing agencies; I’ve never dealt with another staffing agency with agents as personable as Caroline, Tajia, and Steve. They put in the time and extra effort to get me through the door. That means the world to me. CLICK IT, a Saxon Global company is one agency I’ll definitely work with in the future if the opportunity arises.

(Burstable Performance Instances)
AWS has been coming up with various EC2 instance offerings that are constantly evolving and staying on top of the cloud market. These EC2 instances form the backbone for the entire AWS cloud ecosystem. Therefore, it becomes extremely important to explore the details and uniqueness of each instance family for better decision making.
In today’s blog, there is an emphasis on General-purpose instance categories, especially the Burstable instances which help in both cost and performance optimization, if chosen wisely.
Most of the General-purpose workloads fall under 3 instance series viz. A1, M4, M5, M6, T2, T3, T4.
While every workload is different in its own way, in terms of the workload size & CPU utilization patterns, T instance family is unique wrt a wide range of instance size starting from nano to 2xlarge (smaller end of the scale) compared to M instance family.
Moreover, T instances have gained more popularity in recent years because of the “Burstable performance” nature, due to which customers have not only got benefited from considerable cost savings but also had experienced the same performance with that of M4 or M5 instances as long as CPU% is within the range of “Breakeven threshold” (will discuss later in the blog series)
As per the analysis done by AWS on the applications and instances that are running on General Purpose workloads, it is been observed that a broad set of General Purpose instances use low CPU utilization and only a fraction of the instances are using high CPU utilization. This was the driver for AWS to come up with Burstable instances.
Most popular Burstable ‘T’ Instances -- T2,T3, T3a,T4g
Comparison of T2,T3,T3a and T4g Instance types
By design, the instance is built to have a moderate CPU usage that is included in the offering. If you want to sustain high CPU usage, you need to pay as you go on-demand price for that incremental CPU usage. It is very much paid for what you use.
Quick facts for consideration
- T3 offers a 30% improved price to performance compared to previous generation T2 instances.
- T3 is based on Intel Xeon Platinum 8000 series (Skylake) processors with a core Turbo clock speed of 3.1 GHz/sec.
- T3a is based on AMD EPYC 7000 series processor with a core Turbo clock speed of 2.5 GHz/sec.
- The default mode of CPU burst setting is “Unlimited” for T3 & T3a Instances. It can be changed to Standard and vice versa at any time.
- T3 generation instances come with twice the number of vCPUs on smaller instance sizes (nano, small) when compared to T2.
- Intel Hyperthreading is enabled by default so that customers get the incremental performance that is enabled by the Intel processor chips.
- T3 instances are built on EC2’s AWS Nitro system, which gives more access to the CPU power and higher network and storage performance.
- There is an improved network performance of up to 5 Gbps at burst.
- There is an improved EBS performance offering up to 1.5 Gbps on smaller sizes and 2.05 Gbps on larger sizes.
- T3 instance types support only EBS storage and not Local storage.
- T3 is 13% cheaper than M5
- T3 is 17% cheaper than M4
- T3 is 10% cheaper than T2
- 30% better price to performance than T2
- T3a id 10% cheaper than T3
- CPU Credit Price is 5 cents per vCPU-Hour for Linux, RHEL & SUSE & 9.6 cents per vCPU-Hour for Windows
Lot of customers whose general-purpose workload’s average CPU utilization is idle to low to moderate & at times occasional periods of high CPU activity have got benefited by migrating their existing workloads on M instance types and some old generation C type instances to Burstable T type instances and getting benefited with the performance they need at a lower cost.READ MORE
Cloud technology is expected to dominate the technology world as it will become the platform for other essential innovative technologies such as IoT, AI, and Blockchain. Cloud technology has traveled a long journey from a cost-saving tool to one of the most significant trends in the last few years. Today you cannot imagine digital transformation without cloud technology. This technology's significance is boosted amidst the pandemic circumstances as it emerged as the savior for several enterprises. Therefore, investment in the cloud technology sector is increased.
The rise of Hybrid Cloud Demand
Hybrid cloud will continue to be one of the most sought-after cloud deployment models for enterprises as it offers more flexibility. As per the Gartner report, 75% of enterprises will have a hybrid cloud model by 2020. Apart from flexibility, there are other factors that drive the massive demand for the Hybrid cloud model, security, cost efficiency, agility, and scalability. Another research firm report, MarketsandMarkets, suggested that the hybrid cloud market will grow from $44.6 billion in 2018 to $97.6 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 17 percent.
Demand for Hyper-Scale Data Center
Speed is the need of the hour. In this digital era, enterprises want to operate at high speed to deliver their customers' services smoothly. Organizations are looking for the IT infrastructure that matches their requirements – Scale-up whenever infrastructure realizes the surge in demand and Scale down in case of reduced demand. These dynamic situations led to the emergence of hyper-scale data centers in the market.
These centers are capable of matching the instant requests of the enterprises. A research report by Markets&Markets suggests that the hyper-scale data centers market will grow from $25.08 to $80.65 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 26.32 percent. Moreover, Cisco estimates that hyper-scale data centers’ traffic will increase by 2021, making the hyper-scale data centers account for 55 percent of all data center traffic by 2021.
Demand for Disaster-Recovery-as-a-service
As we already mentioned in our previous blog (Disasters Cannot Be Prevented But Disaster Recovery Can Be Planned) that downtime is causing massive loss to the enterprises. Enterprises are losing tens of thousands of dollars due to data loss and downtime. As more and more enterprises are taking the digital route, downtime risk is increasing. As per the IBM report, the average cost of a data breach is close to $3.92 million. Additionally, Gartner's report indicates that IT downtime's average cost is close to $5,600 per minute. It majorly depends on the domain in which the enterprises are running their businesses. For example, if it is an e-commerce company, the downtime cost could be high because downtime means missed sales deals.
Moreover, data security is another critical aspect of enterprises. They need to take proper care of their data that they receive and store (customers’ data). Therefore, enterprises are legally bound to ensure that they have proper data security mechanism in place. Therefore, the demand for Disaster Recovery as a service is increasing among enterprises.READ MORE
