Cloud Cruiser Releases Cloud Analytics Via Channel

Cloud Cruiser has released the CloudSmart-Now cloud usage analytics to measure usage by user and costs associated with hybrid clouds.

CloudSmart-Now, available via channel partners, is a series of out-of-the-box, pre-configured templates with built-in workflow to collect detailed usage and cost data from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure, Windows Azure Pack (WAP), VMware and Openstack.  The real time reports are meant to help end users identify IT waste, compare costs and forecast future demand.

“Cloud Cruiser solves the same business problem for both enterprise users and the channel,” said Deirdre Mahon, CMO of Cloud Cruiser. “Cloud Cruiser’s new CloudSmart-Now offering helps channel partners who need to very quickly see which of their external customers are using what cloud services and how much.  They can quickly see who the ‘top spenders’ are and by distinct cloud service offering in addition to most utilized cloud services (AWS; Azure; WAP; Openstack and VMware).”

CloudSmart-Now provides pre-configured collectors, built-in data mapping to business structures, report templates and an automated workflow so businesses can distribute reports to business users.

“Hybrid cloud is simply a reality for most businesses. The single biggest area of improvement continues to be around efficiencies and reducing costs,” said Fraser McKay, VP Products, Cloud Cruiser. “We love the promise of low-cost cloud but it’s not unlimited and unless you track and measure, sprawl and anarchy quickly creep in. Our customers stay ahead and better forecast to meet business demands. We directly address this problem with a single solution to manage all hybrid cloud environments.  You can’t manage what you can’t measure and we’ve done the heavy lifting with this new packaged offering.”
