How CloudHealth Works 

Data collection

CloudHealth ingests and aggregates data from the multiple data streams you use across cost, usage, performance, and security, to provide a holistic view of your applications, infrastructure, and business. Using open APIs, CloudHealth seamlessly collects data from cloud providers, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. It will also connect and pull data from third-party tools that you use for application performance management, configuration management, security management, etc., allowing you to use CloudHealth as your single source of truth for multicloud management across your entire portfolio. CloudHealth integration partners include Alert Logic, Ansible, Chef, Datadog, New Relic, and Wavefront by VMware.

Logical business groupings

CloudHealth lets you view and sort information based on dynamic business level groups called Perspectives. These business groups are the lenses through which you view your infrastructure (e.g. Cost Center, Lines of Business, Environment). With these Perspectives, you can evaluate your environment holistically in order to see what’s working, what’s not, and be able to adapt quickly.
