MANAGE ACCOUNTABILITY THROUGH POLICY-DRIVEN AUTOMATION AND GOVERNANCE

Establish compliance with best practices, ensure the optimal operation of your cloud and hybrid infrastructure, reduce manual labor, and eliminate the potential for human error in critical business operation.

SAVE TIME

Take efficiency to the next level, automate your day-to-day operations by setting rules. Execute system-wide changes at the click of a button, manage budget and allocations simply, and get peace of mind that CloudHealth is keeping an eye on your cloud and hybrid infrastructure -- even when you’re asleep.

ENABLE RAPID ACTION

Setting policies enables rapid response as your environment evolves. For example, based on your budget, CloudHealth enables you to automate the purchasing and modifying of Reserved Instances. Configure policies and rules to execute workflows based on guidelines you define; start, stop, terminate, or reboot instances; define your own custom actions. Instead of terminating an instance with a security violation, stop it for further investigation. Run lights on/lights off policies, detect and eliminate unattached EBS volumes...the possibilities are endless.

STREAMLINE DECISION MAKING

Reduce management complexity for ongoing infrastructure operations management with custom workflows. Create approvals and authorizations for each automated process -- for example, require CFO approval for a purchase. Custom workflows deliver notifications or secure approvals, and make changes to your cloud and hybrid infrastructure automatically.

ZIFF DAVIS USES ACTIVE POLICY-SETTING AND GOVERNANCE TO MANAGE SUBSIDIARIES

“We’ve set up automated workflows to delete unused EBS volumes. That alone saves hundreds a month. We had no way of doing that previously, and no way to track elastic IPs, either.”

DEFINE AND ENFORCE

Active policy management and automation will simplify cloud and data center management, making your assets more efficient, dynamic and cost-effective – while adhering to corporate guidelines and established best practices.

Be vigilant when running a cloud or hybrid ecosystem. Utilize best practices defined at the organizational level along with automated and user-aware day-to-day governance. This eliminates time-consuming tasks so your IT team can spend their time managing services and products instead of cloud and hybrid ecosystems.
