Cloudability, a leading cloud cost management provider that enables businesses to achieve financial and operational excellence with the cloud, announced it is now supporting Google Cloud Platform (GCP) on the company’s True Cost cloud management platform. Businesses and enterprises using Cloudability now have full visibility into their GCP spend, giving them even more power to fully visualize their costs, manage budgets and drive cost savings. This offering is a result of customers asking Cloudability to deliver a single, integrated and normalized view for spend and utilization on the three major public clouds - GCP, AWS, and Azure- providing actionable cost insights to organizations with multi-cloud environments.
“As an enterprise team focused on building reliable, effective products on top of public clouds, it was imperative for the USA TODAY NETWORK to have a technology partner that could help us manage costs and optimize resources,” said Franklin Hanson, Director of Platform Engineering at USA TODAY NETWORK. “By leveraging Cloudability’s public cloud expertise and support for our Google Cloud environment, our team is able to focus on the platform itself, while still maximizing the value of our public cloud provider.”
Cloud cost management is a continuous, iterative cycle which requires processing millions of lines of billing files and petabytes of data, which is not humanly possible. Cloudability’s machine learning, analytics-driven True Cost cloud management platform tracks 75 billion data points, three billion CPU hours, and 700 million unique compute resources, representing over $5 billion in public cloud spend. GCP’s infrastructure is engineered to handle enterprises’ most data-intensive workloads, giving them the flexibility to scale quickly while still maintaining control. Gaining additional insight into optimizing value and utilization on these workloads via Cloudability is another benefit for all GCP users.
“We’ve seen a growing trend of enterprises embracing multi-cloud environments for reasons ranging from seeking out best of breed technologies, to a desire to remain cloud agnostic, to disaster recovery preparedness,” said Erik Onnen, CTO, Cloudability. “GCP’s popularity is growing, earning a Leader spot in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service, Worldwide for the first time. It made sense for us to bring GCP under our True Cost umbrella and give our users the ability to run their multi-cloud environment with flexibility, agility and full transparency into their operational and billing models, freeing up time and resources for their employees and business.”
