Enhanced Cloud Intelligence Solution for AWS enables enterprises to manage growing operational data and public cloud sprawl
Datapipe, a global provider of managed services and infrastructure for outsourced IT and cloud computing, has announced Datapipe Cloud Analytics for Amazon Web Services (AWS), an advanced managed service offering that uses innovative data-mining and intelligence tools to aggregate and analyze AWS usage patterns across the enterprise.
This enhanced functionality enables a more effective cost management approach as enterprises look to extend their AWS public cloud environments deeper into the organization – a key benefit as the amount of operational and functional data that must be managed and analyzed continues to grow.
Datapipe Cloud Analytics is the only tool available today that combines this level of active intelligence with real time expert support. This combination enables enterprises to act on issues before they negatively impact the operational integrity of cloud deployments. Key features include:
At the core of Datapipe Cloud Analytics service is its Big Data Engine that connects a client’s AWS account via a secure, non-invasive API to collect and analyze raw usage metrics in near real time, along with cost and billing statements that provide a detailed and granular view of cost data. The Datapipe Cloud Analytics platform then layers on sophisticated insights, analytics, recommendations and tools to help optimize cloud usage and costs. Unlike other tools performing similar analysis, Datapipe Cloud Analytics taps into Datapipe’s deep understanding of IT operations that comes from managing and delivering IT services from its global delivery centers and networks for nearly a decade.
“We’ve reached a tipping point in the industry and traditional service management tools are no longer enough to enable IT operators to optimize all of their AWS services in a cost-effective and scalable manner,” said Robb Allen, CEO, Datapipe. “By combining the Datapipe Cloud Analytics platform with our industry-leading managed services, we’re helping our customers tackle the operational and governance challenges of successfully managing their public cloud deployments.”
Datapipe Cloud Analytics makes it easy for enterprise IT operators to see and improve daily costs and assets, identify usage behaviors and align all of these elements to the company’s business objectives. Datapipe customers can keep costs under control by budgeting both real-time and estimated costs as well as track and monitor spending by department. This allows them to more effectively manage their AWS spending and control “sprawl” as more business units within the company begin using AWS resources for their specific needs.
