Some things in life just go together so well…whether it’s an unlikely food pairing, a well-matched color scheme, or your favorite celebrity couple. Take CloudHealth and ParkMyCloud, for example. Each on their own is pretty great – but together they join forces to save you serious time and money.
As a ParkMyCloud customer, you can control cost automatically through scheduling and enriched analytical capabilities, thus optimizing your multi-cloud environments and increasing return on investment. Now with this partnership, you can also use CloudHealth to get better governance, simple rightsizing features and management through a single platform. Customers can now buy ParkMyCloud directly from CloudHealth, and the companies are working on a technology integration which will leverage CloudHealth’s best in class cloud governance platform and ParkMyCloud’s actionable scheduling policies.
Benefits of using CloudHealth Platform:
1. Reduce Total Cost of Ownership with Reserved Instances and Rightsizing
CloudHealth Platform provides an easy way to take advantage of reserved instances (RI) in AWS and Azure from the platform itself.
Ulf Mansson, Recorded Future’s Chief of Operations and Co-Founder, says that “We needed a way to automate the management of RIs, since we didn’t have the time to constantly monitor them.” CloudHealth has helped Recorded Future to save money and use that hard earned money for more strategic initiatives.
CloudHealth helps you with rightsizing your environment. In other words, manage your underutilized resources better to ensure you are not overspending. For example, look at the report below for rightsizing EC2 instances.
2. Comprehensive management and integrations for your hybrid cloud
Bottomline for your company is the ability to manage your entire hybrid cloud from one platform. Across all your clouds and existing point management solutions. Electronic hardware and software provider, Mentor Graphics has accurately identified and allocated resources to projects and provided visibility into cost projections using CloudHealth. This has helped the company immediately see and compare the impact their decisions have on both cost and ROI.
The picture below shows the simple cross-cloud dashboard from CloudHealth platform.
For customers already using DataDog, Chef or New Relic within your environment you would want to continue using those while adopting a new platform. The CloudHealth Platform is designed with open APIs. So we made it easy to integrate all your existing API driving solutions for business and IT continuity.
3. Security for peace of mind
Not only have we designed the CloudHealth Platform to be very secure, we also can ensure your AWS accounts follow security best practices. For example, using CloudHealth policies, you can ensure IAM roles, security groups, and permissions are all configured properly. We’ve taken the best practices from AWS and from the Center for Internet security and turned them into out of the box policies, so you can get alerted any time your environment is out of compliance. We are also a SOC Type 2 Compliant company, to read more on that please click here.
All of us at CloudHealth Technologies and ParkMyCloud are pretty excited about the impact this partnership will have on our customers. It means serious value for them as they simplify governance, derive greater ROI from their cloud investments, and are able to drive more strategic projects.
