Granular analysis and custom reporting

Key features of the CloudHealth platform that Oblivion Cloud Control leverages with their customers include the ability to view detailed cost and usage reports and utilize data for accurate forecasting and capacity planning. Additionally, CloudHealth’s Perspectives enable customers to build customizable dashboards and reports segmented by lines of business, projects, cost centers, and other categories important to their business.

It’s really powerful for our customers to dig into how their teams are performing and where to chargeback, showback, and optimize.

Leveraging cloud policy automation

Oblivion Cloud Control largely credits CloudHealth’s automation capabilities with their ability to successfully serve customers at scale. Michel says that they are “leveraging CloudHealth functionalities in a way that enables us to manage our customers at scale. Without automation, it becomes impossible to do that.” 

In particular, CloudHealth’s APIs trigger functions that add accounts on the partner and customer level to the appropriate billing block. This process drives Oblivion Cloud Control’s internal account vending machine that deploys accounts automatically. To update policies, Oblivion Cloud Control created a code pipeline that’s triggered when policies are updated, enabling functions that deploy and update policies across all accounts automatically. 

Oblivion Cloud Control also uses CloudHealth policies to show when a customer’s Reserved Instances are set to expire, thereby saving customers’ cloud costs and reducing the time employees previously spent monitoring customers’ cloud environments.
