Cloud Optimization and Analytics (COA), delivered by Cloud Application Manager, facilitates getting the most of out of your cloud investment by analyzing cloud usage and spend across multiple clouds.
COA is a fundamental benefit of CenturyLink's Managed Services Anywhere and Cloud Application Manager. This functionality allows you to natively purchase and provision AWS, Azure, CenturyLink Cloud, or CenturyLink Private Cloud on VMware Cloud Foundation through one centralized platform. Benefit from simplified, consolidated billing and account management for this and any other CenturyLink Cloud services you use.
Cost efficiency occurs by identifying underutilized resources and decommissioning them or decreasing their size. COA can recommend right-sizing resources based on historical usage and estimated cost savings. You can also set a budget limit and receive alerts when it has been reached. Detailed spend reports include allocation, invoicing, chargebacks, and costs for non-VM resources.
When IT can’t deliver quickly, teams may go directly to cloud providers for services. This Shadow IT can create weak spots that hackers use to compromise systems and oversized compute resources that increase costs. Auto-discover instances of Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS subscriptions on BYOC, AWS, and Azure platforms to help you manage, govern, and control Shadow IT. Also, establish a catalog of standard policies that drive consistency across organizations, teams, projects, and employees.
Get instant insight to help realize cost savings by implementing best practices and identifying underutilized resources. Centralized billing provides access to spend across different cloud service providers and reports sorted by organization, cost center, or workspace.
Organizations can easily find themselves with tens of thousands of VMs spread across multiple providers. But how do they know which services are actually delivering the most value? Or how the cost of these services maps to revenue-generating activities? IT Sprawl is currently one of the largest challenges for all IT departments, and Cloud Application Manager is a powerful tool to meet that challenge.
Create or access existing CenturyLink Private Cloud on VMware Cloud Foundation, AWS, and Azure accounts and simplify orchestration of your cloud environment — no more jumping between platforms to spin up a simple server. Having multiple clouds integrated into one management interface saves time, which translates into a more efficient multi-cloud experience.
Cloud migration is flexible so customers can easily schedule deployments, scale, terminate workloads, or automate the extensive migration of virtual machines between public and private clouds environments. Predictable and seamless management of available resources between clouds is a key component of any Cloud Strategy.
