BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CloudHealth® Technologies, the pioneer in IT service management for the cloud, announced a new version of its CloudHealth® platform, the industry’s most comprehensive cloud management platform, tailored to meet the unique needs of service providers. Through the platform, Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Value Added Resellers (VARs) and Systems Integrators (SIs) are able to effectively manage numerous customer accounts through a single console, while controlling costs. In addition, CloudHealth is launching a Cloud Business Accelerator Program for MSPs that will serve as a catalyst for success in the cloud.
“MSPs, VARs and SIs have been providing managed services to end customers with on-premise IT infrastructure for many years,” said CloudHealth CEO and Co-founder Dan Phillips. “The flexibility, ease of deployment, and consumption-based pricing provided by cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), are now compelling these end customers to move their IT infrastructure to the cloud. Managing a cloud environment with all of its services and assets has created a great opportunity for managed service providers, along with the need for a cloud management platform that provides one console to manage many customers, with multiple services, and delivers policy management, at scale. That’s what CloudHealth does.”
CloudHealth provides a single, comprehensive view of an entire cloud ecosystem, enabling service providers to align cloud operations with business objectives, reduce costs and proactively manage performance to meet service levels. As an Advanced Technology Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN), CloudHealth provides in-depth visibility into AWS environments, creating value through business insight into assets, costs, performance, provisioning, budgets, revenue, customers, products and services. Key features in the CloudHealth platform for service providers include the ability to:
- Manage customers and multiple accounts through a single console
- Automate production and delivery of customer statements
- Deliver value-add cloud services for monitoring, management and reporting
- Optimize margins through aggregated usage for volume discounts and by taking advantage of reserved instance purchases and tiered discounts
In conjunction with the CloudHealth platform, the Cloud Business Accelerator Program provides a roadmap for accelerating business success in the cloud and includes:
- MSP Onboarding
- MSP-tailored Offerings
- MSP Customer Onboarding Training
- MSP Run Book Creation
- MSP Sales Training
