91 percent of enterprises today use some form of the cloud, with 84 percent already progressing towards a multi-cloud strategy. This comes as no surprise, given that a multi-cloud architecture comprised of different cloud platforms offers the versatility to accommodate a wide range of enterprise computing requirements.
The big three providers, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud, are the foundation of many multi-cloud strategies, as each platform has strengths that complement each other and make it possible to deliver specific business outcomes.
However, a multi-cloud strategy is more complex than simply adopting the main cloud providers, with an array of hurdles associated with the environment. For instance, cloud sprawl becomes even more intense when using multi-cloud, as the costs associated with each service can quickly spin out of control.
Furthermore, lack of app management is a common problem for multi-cloud environments, as it is easy to lose track of which applications are running, where, and how much it costs every day, especially across multiple clouds. To curb these multi-cloud issues, enterprises must invest in a cloud optimization/management platform.
Our platform can help organizations stay ahead of cloud sprawl by enhancing visibility across all environments, as well as identifying the optimal balance for workloads and making the most of cloud capacity.
At Kalibr8, we understand how critical cloud management and optimization capabilities have become to the modern-day enterprise in the age of multi-cloud environments. This is why Kalibr8 provides an automated cloud optimization & cost management platform with an intuitive and efficient “single pane of glass” view into all aspects that impact getting the most value for the least cost.
We continually assess Microsoft support as they release further capabilities to manage the customer environment to a more granular level. Our platform currently supports Azure, with AWS and GCP coming by the end of 2022. On top of this, we provide a single view across multiple clouds with data on cost, power consumption, and overall optimization to ensure customer cloud assets are being adequately tracked with automated management and scheduling. Our platform also provides a centralized portal to leverage more advanced management capabilities over time. These include horizontal scaling, power consumption savings, cloud insights, trends, and usage data. Overall, by working with Kalibr8, Managed Service Providers (MSPs), as well as enterprises within virtually all other sectors, can confidently manage their multi-cloud environment allowing them to work with their customers to maximize budgets and confidence in their cloud opex and can view costs and savings by resources, group, subscription, or tenant.
