The cloud monitoring company will use new funding to delve even deeper into customer cloud deployments and optimize them.
Amazon(s amzn) Web Services has launched two new interactive usage reports to help customers get a better grip on their use of EC2 resources and assess their costs. The reports can be accessed from the AWS Management Console. This will be good news for AWS customers but not so great for a handful of third-party companies with their own usage assessment tools, although most of them, like Rightscale, offer multi-cloud monitoring. It’s probably no coincidence that Cloudyn, which had focused on AWS, just added Google Compute Engine to the clouds it watches.
New service promises to help companies weigh which of the two giganti public clouds is most cost-efficient for a given workload.
If you’re a devops pro you probably speak AWS. If you’re a CIO, CEO, line-of-business manager, probably not. Cloudyn says it’ll make your lives easier.
AWS has big plans for its Trusted Advisor and other enterprise support offerings but giving more metrics to customers will irk third-party service partners.
Companies like Cloudyn want to make Amazon Web Services less of a mystery to its users, but they have lots of competition — including from Amazon itself.
Cloudability says its new AWS cost analytics tool can handle the deluge of hourly cost data Amazon churns out and help customers nip budgeting and other usage problems in the bud.
Don’t like the cost of your cloud deployment? Wait a second, it’ll change. And Rightscale says it can help you make sense out of all those changes and cut your costs.
A month-long free trial of the Amazon Web Services’ monitoring and alerting tool has to spook a raft of smaller companies offering similar services.
Do you know how much Amazon storage you’re using? Do you really? Cloudyn says it can tell you the real data and recommend ways to cut costs.
