ParkMyCloud and CloudHealth Technologies Announce Integration for Cloud Cost

By Ken Briodagh September 06, 2018

ParkMyCloud, an enterprise platform for continuous cost control in public cloud, and CloudHealth Technologies, trusted cloud management platform provider, today announced that they have furthered their partnership with a technology integration that provides customers with end-to-end multi-cloud cost control and visibility.

More than $12.9 billion will be wasted on unused cloud resources this year, which means public cloud users have an immediate need for automated savings and governance. Customers leveraging ParkMyCloud and CloudHealth’s integrated solution are empowered to reduce this cloud waste - in fact, customers already using both platforms currently save an average of more than $25,000 monthly on their cloud bills. Our joint customers experience a seamless, integrated solution, including:

  • ParkMyCloud’s SmartParking recommendations to optimize resource on/off time, which can be actioned for savings in a matter of clicks, now manageable through the CloudHealth platform
  • CloudHealth’s recommendations to optimize public and private cloud resources with complete security
  • Analytics and reporting on spending and savings by environment, department, application, resource and more, providing visibility to make smarter business decisions

“What we need to manage and optimize our cloud environments is cost control, user governance, and detailed reporting,” said Melanie Metcalfe, Director of Project Support, Foster Moore. “It makes our cloud operations simpler and easier when solutions from different vendors are integrated out of the box, and we’re glad to see CloudHealth and ParkMyCloud making this a reality.”

“We’re seeing a trend of more and more companies using multiple clouds,” said Jay Chapel, CEO, ParkMyCloud. “What single- and multi-cloud customers have in common are skyrocketing bills, and they don’t have the time or resources to control these costs. We solve this problem by providing an automated cost control solution. By combining this with CloudHealth’s visibility and governance, customers can achieve end-to-end cloud cost optimization and governance.”

This announcement continues the momentum in the multi-cloud management space kicked off by last week’s news that VMware will acquire CloudHealth to provide multi-cloud operations at a global scale.
