“Though companies invest a lot in their infrastructure, most operate at low capacity due to the need for long-term stability and quality. Granulate solves the trade-off between quality service and cost-efficiency and provides its clients with better results on both fronts by optimizing their infrastructure’s performance,” Ezra said in a statement. “This technology helps companies cut costs significantly while improving their business performance.”


Granulate said in a statement that its product is currently in use by various cloud-based companies and applications and can improve performance, reduce response time and lower costs by dozens of percentage points, all within minutes and without the need for new development work or to make changes to the client’s code. Granulate’s technological solution syncs with the operating system and analyzes its data flow and control flow. It then automatically optimizes the server functions according to the specific application’s needs.
