Change the way you deliver IT to your business with the power of multiple Clouds at your fingertips
Cloud Computing adoption has grown over the past few years. Today, 81% of companies are running multiple Clouds1. Many businesses have adopted a hybrid cloud approach with a mixture of Public Clouds together with their own Private Cloud deployments as they seek to find the right balance for their IT needs. However, management becomes increasingly difficult as the number of different Clouds continues to grow. Keeping track of the various Clouds spend, monitoring the workloads in each Cloud, governing the use of Cloud resources according to company IT policy and meeting end business user needs are just some of the expectations that IT faces.
Cloud Management Platform is a single integrated portal that manages multiple Clouds from Public Clouds to bare metal servers. It allows your end business users to self-serve the Cloud resources required while governed by the IT policy. It also makes it easier for the IT team to manage the business’s multiple Clouds and analyse the Cloud usage trends and predict monthly Cloud spending.

Cloud Management Platform consolidates and simplifies the management of multiple supported Cloud resources, from Public Clouds to bare metal servers, as you make use of them for different use cases. Instead of manually provisioning Cloud resources, the platform orchestrates the various automated provisioning processes to quickly deliver the resources to your end users.
Cloud Computing costs can quickly escalate and grow beyond control if left unmanaged. Control your Cloud spend by creating approval processes for business units to justify their requests and review their historical monthly spend through the platform’s analytics.
Cloud Management Platform enables employees to request for Cloud resources and automate the provisioning process. This frees up the IT teams to focus on other areas that increases value to the organisation while business units can get what they need faster.
Monitor the status of your Cloud workloads to ensure that they are operating efficiently and simply manage your multiple Clouds in a single platform. Supported Clouds include Public Clouds (Telstra Cloud Infrastructure, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, IBM SoftLayer and Google Cloud Platform) and Cloud Hypervisors (VMware vSphere).
