Cloud Cruiser kondigt Cloud Service Provider Edition 2.0 aan voor cloud-winstgevendheid

- Cloud Cruiser levert geavanceerde mogelijkheden en een nieuwe promotie voor de bevordering van grotere winstgevendheid voor CSP's

FRANKFURT, Duitsland, 6 december 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloud Cruiser, de leider in cloud-kostenintelligentie, kondigde vandaag op HP Discover de algemene release van haar Cloud Service Provider Edition 2.0 aan, samen met een nieuwe promotie gericht op de presentatie van de nieuwe winststimulerende functies ervan.

Cloud Cruiser ondersteunt een breed scala van heterogene publieke en privé cloud-oplossingen, waaronder HP CloudSystem en HP Cloud Service Automation, het meest uitgebreide, geïntegreerde cloud-beheerplatform van de industrie voor de bouw, de bemiddeling en het beheer van cloud-diensten voor toepassingen en infrastructuur van ondernemingsklasse.  Cloud Cruiser's 2.0 Cloud Service Provider Edition biedt een rijke functionaliteit die speciaal ontworpen is om de winstgevendheid voor serviceproviders te stimuleren. Enkele van de functies zijn:

  • Winst- en verliesrekeningen die de gezondheid van uw cloud tonen, met analyse van de winstgevendheid per klant en service
  • Flexibele prijsmodellen, zoals gedifferentieerde prijsstelling, try-and-buy promoties, SLA-kredietaanpassingen en geplande prijzen
  • Analyse van de kostprijs van de verkochte goederen (Cost of Goods Sold, COGS) om de marges te optimaliseren
  • Veilige, klanttoegankelijke prijsportalen voor rapportagetoegang van eindgebruikers
  • Klantgecontroleerde budgetten/quota toegepast op organisatorisch niveau
  • Geautomatiseerde factuurdistributie

Simac, een belangrijke Infrastructure-as-a-Service-provider in de Benelux, zal Cloud Cruiser's 2.0 Edition implementeren om haar multi-tenant facturering te beheren. Simac biedt een pay-per-use oplossing die klanten in staat stelt om alleen te betalen voor de infrastructuur en diensten die ze nodig hebben, waardoor kapitaaluitgaven geëlimineerd worden en de kosten nauwer op de inkomstenstroom worden afgestemd.

"Met Cloud Cruiser kunnen we nieuwe klanten een snelle opstap bieden door het automatiseren van onze cloud-facturering, een volgende stap in het leveren van onze diensten in een waar cloud-concept," stelt Peter van Egmond, Manager Business Development bij Simac. "Daarnaast kunnen we onze marges optimaliseren door het analyseren van de voor onze diensten ontvangen inkomsten ten opzichte van de kosten om die diensten te leveren."

Cloud Cruiser onthulde vandaag ook een nieuwe promotie voor cloud-serviceproviders met de naam "Three Steps to Profitability" ("Drie stappen naar winstgevendheid"). Dit GRATIS aanbod is vrijwel gegarandeerd om de CSP-winstgevendheid te verbeteren binnen een enkele factureringscyclus.

Zowel Cloud Cruiser als HP voeren deze week live demonstraties uit van Cloud Cruiser's kostenbeheersingsoplossing op de HP Discover 2012-conferentie in Frankfurt, Duitsland. Ga naar Cloud Cruiser op stand #407 en in de HP Cloud Zone.

There are many considerations when moving applications from on-premise to cloud. It is critical to understand the benefits and also challenges of this migration. A successful migration will result in lower Total Cost of Ownership, yet offer the same or higher level of robustness. Migration to cloud shifts computing resources from your data center, which can yield significant advantages provided that the cloud vendor an offer enterprise-grade quality for your application.
Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/...

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively.
Containers are revolutionizing the way we deploy and maintain our infrastructures, but monitoring and troubleshooting in a containerized environment can still be painful and impractical. Understanding even basic resource usage is difficult - let alone tracking network connections or malicious activity. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gianluca Borello, Sr. Software Engineer at Sysdig, will cover the current state of the art for container monitoring and visibility, including pros / cons and li...
The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....
