- 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.

Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds. Today, some cloud vendors are using artificial intelligence (AI) to simplify cloud deployment and management. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ajay Gulati, Co-founder and CEO of ZeroStack, will discuss how AI can simplify cloud operations. He will cover the following topics: why clou...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
