Transparency and visibility allow teams to see their cloud spend, promoting efficiency

  • December 23, 2018
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

Our client wanted a transparent and visible view of financials in the cloud and that's why we opted for Cloudability Optimization Platform. We are using the solution on AWS.
How has it helped my organization?
One of our clients has used Cloudability to get help with rising monthly costs and promote accountability and awareness of cloud spend throughout the different areas of the business. Teams were virtually clueless about how much it was costing to test and develop their respective products. With Cloudability everything is there to see so things can be managed efficiently, saving money and resources.
What is most valuable?
Transparency and visibility are the key features.
Regarding integration and configuration of this product in our AWS environment, it fits in naturally and enhances the overall value as it's "native" to AWS.
We are also able to export data from it and put it in Excel sheets for some of the reporting.
What needs improvement?
More documentation with more use case scenarios would be nice. Also, the dashboard needs to include more graphs per team to show what individual teams are spending in a given time period.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
It's quite mature and stable. We did extensive testing before putting it into production.
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
As it's in the cloud, scalability is not an issue at all. The environment consists of dozens of VMs.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
It justifies the cost and is worth it.
We loved the experience of purchasing this solution through AWS Marketplace. It's very intuitive and cost-efficient. We bought it there because that's where it's available.
What other advice do I have?


It is fast in terms of pulling up data and displaying it

The primary use is for billing management software. It not only provides detailed billing of everything, but it also provides insight into how to optimize our infrastructure. It tells us where the overruns are and where there are places for optimization.
How has it helped my organization?
It has already given us insight into how to optimize. So, we are now ramping up steadily its usage.
What is most valuable?
It is fast in terms of pulling up data and displaying it.
Cloud Optimization runs through the system, then tells you, "You could've used these resources. This resource was running, but not utilized that much." It gives you metrics of how the whole infrastructure is used. It ties the metrics to building, in some cases saying, "You paid for something that you didn't use that much."
What needs improvement?
There is always room for improvement in education and training. We are not that mature in terms of our automation. It could help us identify where we could optimize in terms of build.
For how long have I used the solution?
Less than one year.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
I haven't seen any stability issues.
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
We're using a SaaS environment. The SaaS environment has an SLA which automatically scales up depending on our needs, so we don't have to worry about scalability.
How is customer service and technical support?
I have heard that the technical support is very receptive to providing additional capabilities to whatever the customers needs may be.
Which solutions did we use previously?
We used to have Tableau before, but it is not a building software. We would have to pull the data into Tableau on top of it. Tableau is nice, but the whole process was slow. With Cloudability, the process is few seconds and you can get what it would have taken several hours for it to download the data in Tableau, then you can massage it and get it up and running.
We chose Cloudability as a solution because it satisfied some of the critical needs of what we wanted:
* We wanted LDAP integration.
* In terms of core functionality, we wanted to be able to easily slice and dice to be able to see the details of all the charges, which Cloudablity made it very easy to do.
* The clinching factor was the insight it provided to optimize resources. This was pretty impressive.
How was the initial setup?
It integrated seamlessly.
What was our ROI?
It is a little too soon to discuss ROI.
What other advice do I have?
I would recommend Cloudability to other people. If you are looking for a seamless, simple to use, and in-depth, cloud, building analysis tooll, Cloudablity serves all these purposes. It manages all my needs.
