Deploy Repeatable, Best-Practice Environments

CenturyLink Cloud Blueprints offer the opportunity to “standardize” or “templatize” best-practice optimized cloud environments that are easy to deploy across practice groups, team and locations. Author complex “templates” of common cloud environments that may include a number of complex attributes.

Server configurations, operating systems, software packages, scripts and maintenance schedules can be included in a single Blueprints. This new Blueprint may then be used in the future to create a new environment with just a few clicks.

Benefits

Expand Cloud Usage Without Expanding Support Staff

Manage large-scale deployments without the burden of configuring and monitoring each server individually. This lets you grow your cloud without growing staff. Manage your infrastructure with built-in tools such as autoscale, resource limits, task scheduling, default server configurations, batch run packages or blueprints across any or all servers, and adjust environment footprints as needed.

Billing & Account Management That Fits

We natively supports multi-tiered billing structures, so processing invoices and providing detailed usage reports by account is a snap. Other detailed report options are available from the Control Portal as well.

Each VM and add-on service (like disaster recovery) is tracked with a unique account, so you can easily bill each customer just what they owe. Your accounting team won’t be buried trying to parse through a confusing invoice with hundreds of line items. The breakdown is provided for you.
