Somehow 2018 is already winding down, and we’re reflecting on a crazy and wonderful year here at CloudHealth. With many product releases, an office move, and an acquisition by VMware, we’ve had quite the year to blog about. As we wrap up the year, we wanted to share some of our best blogs from this year.
Read below for our top ten blogs of 2018.
In order to help our readers better understand the services offered by Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. We compiled a cloud services comparison of the top three IaaS providers because we know it can be impossible to get all your information in one place.
In the battle of Azure vs. AWS, you could be forgiven for believing Microsoft’s cloud platform is catching up on the industry leader. Recent headlines have declared a 98% year-on-year increase in Azure revenues, while Amazon Web Services “only” reported a 45% increase in revenue over the previous twelve months. Yet, when we put those figures into context, is Azure really catching up?
Back in June 2015, Google commissioned a whitepaper discussing AWS vs. Google Cloud pricing. As you might imagine, the authors of the whitepaper answered the question is Google Cloud cheaper than AWS with a resounding “yes”. However, a lot has changed since June 2015, so we compiled all the facts so you can make the call for yourself.
VMware, whose software powers the world’s most complex digital infrastructure, announced their intent to purchase CloudHealth Technologies this August. This announcement is the result of months of discussions that started as a partnership and resulted in the announcement made.
The AWS Solution Provider Program is a rebrand of the former AWS Reseller Program and rewards partners for technical investments and driving new business to AWS. These changes are important to understand so we developed this Q & A blog to help you along the way.
CloudHealth Technologies breaks down Forrester’s Cloud Cost Monitoring and Optimization Wave, a rigorous vendor evaluation conducted over several months by the Forrester Research team. Don’t just take it from us though, you can use this report to put together a short list of vendors to evaluate.
Because of the rapidly changing cloud environment, cloud computing cost comparison tools can help find the cheapest option at the time of deployment. The cheapest option does not necessarily mean the best option; and, as a result, we decided to compile a comparison so you can make the best choice for your business.
Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) is often the second or third highest cost when using AWS at scale. Unattended EBS costs can become very large over time. We’ve developed best practices so you can use to easily manage your EBS costs, without sacrificing availability and response times.
It may seem like years ago, but GDPR was finally implemented this year. Because it can be taxing for companies to ensure they’re remaining compliant, we broke down what GDPR actually entails so you can best prepare your company. One of the first tasks to address is the implementation of a GDPR data retention policy that advises “data subjects” what information is being collected, who it is being shared with, what it is being used for, and how long it will be retained.
On August 27th, VMware announced its intention to acquire CloudHealth Technologies, and now that acquisition is complete. The CloudHealth executive leadership team expresses deep thanks to customers and partners, as they look to the future. We reflected on what the acquisition means to us, and most importantly our customers.
