Today Unigma, the unified cloud management platform, announces it has launched a new version that optimizes businesses’ use of public clouds. The new version is now available both to internal IT departments as well as managed service providers (MSPs). The platform helps businesses that use public clouds such as AWS, Azure and Google Cloud to manage performance, automate and cost-optimize their clouds, in a single pane of glass.
As More Companies Opt for Public Clouds, Unified Management Approach Essential to Monitor Performance & Optimize Usage
“As we approach the end of 2016, we’ve seen more and more companies opt to go with public clouds for the sheer benefits of innovation that they offer in addition to better data security, flexibility, access and efficiency than companies’ own private clouds could be built to compete with. There are some drawbacks to working with public clouds, however, if a unified way to manage them isn’t taken into consideration before service begins and as it operates every hour of every day,” shared the Unigma founder Kirill Bensonoff, who has over 10 years of public cloud expertise and was one of the earliest AWS partners in New England. “We created Unigma to take the guesswork out of optimal public cloud usage for IT departments and MSPs before day one.”
Platform Provides Tool to Help Select Public Clouds + End-to-End Management of Ongoing Performance
Businesses considering first-time usage of public clouds, or those looking for continual improvements, can utilize Unigma before even signing up by measuring costs with its complimentary cloud calculator which compares prices on AWS, Azure and Google clouds. Unigma’s latest release features empower users to gain the visibility of a unified view into multiple clouds and real-time views into expenses with cost analytics. Additionally, IT teams both internally and externally rely on the platform to ensure cloud performance and availability; while also saving upwards of 20% of time and cost savings working with automation tools. Beyond providing a technology solution on its own, Unigma also offers users of its platform access 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to a team of engineers with cloud experience.
“The Meta-Cloud, where enterprises use many different cloud service providers (CSP) is a significant trend in the adoption of off-premises cloud services,” said Cliff Grossner, Ph.D., senior research director for data center, cloud and SDN at IHS Markit*. “In a recent IHS Markit report, respondents indicated they expected to be using on average 8 different CSPs by 2018, which will drive the need for solutions making it easy to manage performance, automate application deployment and optimize costs for enterprises building Meta-Clouds.”
New users can sign up for a 14-day free trial.
