Robocorp Introduces Dynamic Scalability that Enables Significant Cost Savings
Fremont, CA: Robotic Process Automation (RPA) tool adoption has skyrocketed in recent years. If anything, the pandemic increased organizations' motivation to automate in general, particularly around mundane tasks, which are RPA's sweet spot.
Today, Robocorp, the leading Gen-2 robotic process automation (RPA) provider, has launched its self-hosted scalable environments to enable cost savings and new use cases for customers. This announcement builds on Robocorp's goal of providing customers with the agility needed to quickly build, optimize, and scale automation with additional security, as well as the ability to run any automation on their own scalable infrastructure.
Customers will be able to dynamically scale Windows automation use cases for the first time, thanks to the new deployment.
Furthermore, this release is compatible with Robocorp's existing support for Linux automation and custom-hosted Kubernetes docker containers.
"We've seen that our customers love running bots in container environments because it allows them to scale capacity up and down in a dynamic fashion," commented Antti Karjalainen, Co-Founder & CEO, Robocorp Inc. "It's common that bots need to run in specific settings due to access, security, and compliance. Thus, on-demand self-hosted environments allow our users to combine the best of both worlds."
Customers can save money by using the built-in Robocorp Cloud containers, which offer unconventional consumption-based pricing. Customers will only pay for what they use, eliminating the need to run virtual machines continuously.
This feature will also be useful for the recently launched Work Data Management solution. A large and complex workload divided into smaller tasks will typically take a long time to complete on a single machine; nevertheless, with on-demand scalable environments and parallel processing, customers can dynamically scale the environments as well as run the tasks in parallel to complete the job faster.
"As automation continues to become more widely implemented by companies, creating a dynamic, and secure, runtime environment for automation is critical for innovation," stated Chris Etheredge, VP Sales and Customer Operations, Robocorp. "This release is an important step in providing accessible and effective automation across the globe, reducing the total cost, time, and workloads for companies and their teams."
