ROSEVILLE, Calif., April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloud Cruiser announced today the general release of its cloud cost intelligence solution for System Center 2012. The new Cloud Cruiser Enterprise Edition fully integrates its powerful cost analytics platform with System Center 2012 to allow customers to collect, price, map, and implement chargeback for provisioned resources.
System Center 2012 enables enterprises to manage their physical, virtual, and cloud environments in one place, providing single source support for a diverse mix of applications, hypervisors, and infrastructures. Cloud Cruiser Enterprise Edition for System Center 2012 is specifically designed to manage the costs associated with heterogeneous System Center environments, helping IT professionals to monetize their IT services.
"Enterprises are making significant investments in cloud technology in pursuit of lower costs," states Dave Zabrowski, Founder and CEO of Cloud Cruiser. "However, the heterogeneous and multi-tenant nature of the cloud makes it very difficult to gain cost visibility and control across the enterprise. If you can't see what you're spending, there's a good chance you're spending too much."
System Center 2012 allows customers to make effective business decisions to cut, control, change, or optimize IT services, and Cloud Cruiser adds its sophisticated cost analytics to deliver cost transparency, proactive controls, BI, and chargeback to achieve lower costs. "This is cost control based on real-time intelligence," added Mr. Zabrowski.
System Center 2012 helps manage IT environments across traditional datacenters, private and public clouds, client computers, and devices. System Center captures and aggregates knowledge about systems, policies, processes, and best practices so that infrastructure can be optimized to reduce costs, improve application availability, and enhance service delivery.
"System Center 2012 gives customers a consistent management and monitoring experience and the data necessary to ensure that their IT systems are performing efficiently," said Sergio Klarreich, Director of Business Development and System Center Partner Ecosystem at Microsoft. "In combination with System Center, Cloud Cruiser can help IT use data more effectively by performing such functions as organizational mapping, drilldown cost analytics, and chargeback capabilities."
Cloud Cruiser provides a robust cost analytics platform that delivers cost intelligence based on granular, enterprise-wide resource usage and spending. By leveraging a centralized repository of all enterprise IT spending, customers can perform cost analysis, implement chargeback, set budgets and alerts for every level of their organization, and optimize their costs.
