Cloudyn for OpenStack offers first of its kind multi-cloud deployments platform | #OpenStackSummit

cloud_computing_2014_0003Cloudyn provides a monitoring service platform built using Amazon Web Services (AWS), which then analyzes performance and offers optimization suggestions. Cloudyn also provides similar functionality in Google Compute Engine (GCE) cloud platform.

With OpenStack available for cloud-interested companies, the company has opened up an offering that takes advantage of the open source cloud-enabled stack. Cloudyn for OpenStack is newest release unveiled at the OpenStack Summit in Atlanta.

Cloudyn says it is the first vendor to enable enterprises to obtain in-depth, accurate hybrid cloud visibility, management, and optimization across all multi-cloud deployments–all on one single platform.

DevOps in cloud is about lowering costs, finding balance

Cloudyn for OpenStack brings DevOps features including in-depth usage and cost visibility; multi-cloud workload comparisons on AWS vs. GCP vs. OpenStack; hybrid cloud cost planning and forecasting on deployment, maintenance, performance, compliance, availability of resources, failover, disaster recovery and planning to project which cloud would better serve new and old workloads.

The decision to offer full support for OpenStack is also driven by the fact that Cloudyn is convinced that companies are no longer satisfied with a public-only or private-only cloud deployment and are looking to leverage the combined or hybrid benefits of each deployment. OpenStack platform offers benefit of both public cloud for Infrastructure as Service (IaaS) needs, and private cloud on-premise deployments.

“We know that the future holds an increasingly hybrid mix of public and private cloud deployments,” said Sharon Wagner, Co-Founder and CEO of Cloudyn. He argues that customers are already on the path to hybridization and that to continue down this path the industry needs tool that can support DevOps and development in this environment.

With Cloudyn’s offerings, Sharon believes that by not taking an allegiance with private-only or public-only cloud deployment it will allow for greater innovation in the cloud market. Furthermore, it would make Cloudyn a better solution than one that worked only with one deployment type.

The monitoring cost, performance, utilization and life cycles of cloud servers allow the client to receive recommendations on optimization, such as the proper size, the re-allocation and re-allocation of resources and much more. This will enable IT Managers and DevOps to go beyond cost allocation with accurate and actionable insight for optimizing their deployment per department and per business unit.

All these benefits do have a positive impact on developers. Managers (and teams) will now have a platform where they can compare which cloud services is offering best value to their products in terms of performance, cost and location preference. In addition, developers can easily use the cloud-based services from different vendors and then use the most cost effective way to support their deployment requirements.
