CloudOps, or cloud operations, is the practice of managing and optimising cloud-based infrastructure and applications. As more and more organisations move to the cloud, the need for effective cloud operations becomes increasingly important.
One solution that has emerged to address this need is CloudOps as a Service, a comprehensive cloud management platform
that provides a range of features and capabilities to help organisations optimise their cloud operations.
In this blog post, we'll explore the key benefits of CloudOps as a Service and how it can help you achieve greater cost efficiency, flexibility, and performance in your cloud operations.
Dedicated Branded, Hosted and Managed Morpheus Data Appliance
Inca’s CloudOps as a Service provides a dedicated, branded, and hosted Morpheus Data appliance for managing your cloud environment. This appliance is managed by Inca, so your organisation can focus on core business functions while we handle the operational aspects of your cloud infrastructure.
With a dedicated appliance, you can have complete control over your cloud environment, including setting policies and security protocols. Having a branded appliance helps to create a more unified and consistent user experience across all cloud services used by your organisation and lines of business.
The hosted and managed appliance eliminates the need for on-premises infrastructure and reduces the overhead costs associated with managing your own cloud management solution. Inca will take care of maintenance and updates, ensuring that the appliance is always up-to-date and running smoothly.
Flexible Payment Options
CloudOps as a Service offers a flexible monthly Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) pricing model with no minimum commitment. This means that you only pay for what you use, with no long-term contracts or commitments.
The PAYG model allows you to manage your cloud costs more effectively by providing visibility into your cloud usage and costs. You can adjust your usage and spending based on your actual needs, which can help you avoid overpaying for cloud services.
Seamless Integration with leading Cloud Vendors
CloudOps as a Service seamlessly integrates with leading virtualisation and cloud vendors, including AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, VMware, and more. This allows you to manage your multi-cloud environment from a single platform, making it easier to deploy, manage, and scale your cloud infrastructure.
The integration with leading cloud vendors also provides flexibility and avoids vendor lock-in, enabling you to choose the best cloud services for your specific needs.
Commercial Normalisation of Hybrid Multi-Cloud Environment
CloudOps as a Service provides commercial normalisation of your hybrid multi-cloud environment, making it easier to manage and track your cloud costs. The normalisation process takes into account the different pricing models, discounts, and billing cycles of different cloud vendors, allowing you to compare and track costs across all of your cloud services.
This normalisation can help you make more informed decisions about your cloud usage and optimise your cloud costs. You can identify areas where you can reduce costs and avoid over-provisioning, improving your overall cloud efficiency.
Actionable Guidance on Resource Utilisation and Reserved Instances
CloudOps as a Service provides actionable guidance on resource utilisation and reserved instances. This guidance helps you optimise your cloud usage and reduce costs by identifying underutilised resources and suggesting ways to improve resource utilisation.
Reserved instances are also optimised to reduce costs, as they allow you to commit to using a specific instance type for a longer period of time, reducing the hourly rate.
By following the actionable guidance provided by CloudOps as a Service, you can reduce your overall cloud costs and improve your cloud efficiency.
Bespoke Image Library for Personalised Marketplace
CloudOps as a Service provides a bespoke image library for a personalised marketplace. This allows you to create custom cloud environments with your own unique images, configurations, and applications.
This feature provides increased flexibility and customisation options, enabling you to create cloud environments that meet your specific needs.
Dynamic Cost Comparison Between Connected Cloud Infrastructure
Another key benefit of CloudOps as a Service is the ability to perform dynamic cost comparisons between connected cloud infrastructures. With CloudOps as a Service, you can easily compare the costs of different cloud providers, regions, and instance types, allowing you to make more informed decisions about where to allocate your cloud resources.
This feature allows you to optimise your cloud spend and ensure that you are using the most cost-effective resources for your specific workload requirements. By leveraging this dynamic cost comparison functionality, you can identify opportunities to save money on your cloud spend, without sacrificing performance or reliability.
In addition, the ability to perform dynamic cost comparisons can also help you avoid vendor lock-in and give you greater flexibility and choice when it comes to choosing cloud providers and services. Overall, this feature can help you achieve greater cost efficiency and flexibility in your cloud operations.
Multi-Tenanted to Automate Show Back and Chargeback Accounting
CloudOps as a Service is multi-tenanted, which means that it can support multiple organisations or business units with their own dedicated resources and access controls.
This feature makes it easier to manage and track cloud costs across different departments or teams, as each tenant can be assigned their own cost centres, budgets, and policies. This makes it easier to automate showback and chargeback accounting, enabling you to allocate cloud costs to the appropriate departments or teams.
By automating showback and chargeback accounting, you can improve transparency and accountability, and encourage more responsible use of cloud resources. This can help you reduce overall cloud costs and optimise your cloud efficiency.
In conclusion, CloudOps as a Service provides a comprehensive, end-to-end solution for managing and optimising your cloud-based infrastructure and applications. With features like dedicated branding, dynamic cost comparison, and multi-tenancy, you can achieve greater cost efficiency, flexibility, and performance in your cloud operations.
