CloudHealth Technologies Offers Cloud Service Management for Customers Using Multiple Public Cloud Service Providers
CloudHealth Helps Manage Microsoft Azure Environments by Providing Better Visibility, Automation and Governance
BOSTON – September 26, 2016 – CloudHealth Technologies, the leader in cloud service management, today announced its support for organizations managing applications, infrastructure and services across multiple public cloud service providers, including Microsoft Azure.
The move reflects a growing trend among the CloudHealth Technologies customer base and, by extension, the broader business world, as relying on a mix of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offerings – including Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform – is becoming the new normal.
A recent study found that 82 percent of enterprises use a multi-cloud strategy1. Despite certain complexity challenges that arise when managing disparate service providers, the growth of multi-cloud is not surprising. Its increasing popularity stems from various business drivers, including a wish to minimize reliance on a single vendor, maintain flexibility and choice, and reduce risk of downtime. It can also occur as separate departments within an organization adopt different cloud providers over time.
“At Six Nines we are big proponents of a multi-cloud strategy,” said Jason Cutrer, Founder and President, Six Nines. “Our mission is to help our customers adopt and support the cloud responsibly, and ensure it’s an effective business driver. What we see is that having a multi-cloud environment offers benefits of flexibility, control, and scale.”
To reflect the rise of multi-cloud strategies and Azure, CloudHealth helps customers who run infrastructure across multiple clouds simplify their cloud management. Specifically, CloudHealth provides Azure customers with the following:
- Visibility into all subscriptions, cost centers and enrollments across cost, usage and performance (CPU, memory, and disk).
- Access to burn-down reports to track spend against Enterprise Agreements.
- Customizable policies to alert on changes in cost, usage, or performance.
- Recommendations for virtual machine (VM) rightsizing, enabling customers to identify and downsize underutilized VMs.
- Migration assessments that deliver recommendations of VM types, region and associated projected costs when moving workloads to Azure.
“Cloud service providers aren’t necessarily one-size-fits-all,” said Joe Kinsella, CTO and Founder of CloudHealth Technologies. “Our mission is to keep pace with the needs of our customers, many of whom have a multi-cloud environment. In order to deliver on our promise of providing a single platform for all their cloud services, we must ensure that CloudHealth supports all their public, private, and hybrid cloud environments.”
The CloudHealth platform is available for Azure users starting immediately.
