Aptum launches Hybrid Cloud Manager

Platform gives customers complete visibility and control over cloud costs, performance and compliance, enabling true PaaS functionality.

Aptum, a global hybrid cloud and managed services provider, has launched Hybrid Cloud Manager, powered by HyperGrid, a management platform that enables customers to assess, monitor, optimize, provision and govern private and hyperscale public cloud environments through a single interface. The new service gives customers full control of their costs and simplifies the management of single, hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

Aptum’s Hybrid Cloud Manager is designed to improve the cloud experience for organizations by removing complexity and giving them real-time visibility into cloud resources and configurations. Customers can manage their Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) or Platform as a Service (PaaS) environments through one dashboard that offers a complete picture of the economics and performance characteristics of every cloud resource. The single view gives IT and business decision makers the information they need in a meaningful and contextual format, along with controls to continually optimize their cloud environments in real time.

“Organizations are struggling to get visibility into the performance of their cloud-based infrastructure and applications,” said Jeremy Pease, COO of Aptum. “Aptum Hybrid Cloud Manager not only provides deep visibility into IaaS-based environments but also addresses PaaS resources where most other cloud management platforms do not, giving businesses a holistic view of every cloud asset, simplifying day-to-day operational cloud complexities. This platform addresses some of the biggest challenges in cloud management such as workload migration, cost and performance optimization, compliance and DevOps automation.

“Cloud infrastructure users are running on multiple clouds and different deployment models as they build hybrid environments to accommodate the diversity of uses cases that are found in every organization large or small,” stated Philbert Shih, Managing Director of Structure Research. “The holy grail of this world is not just a unified view and management interface, but one capable of addressing security, compliance and performance requirements. This is exceedingly difficult to build the right way and those service providers that do have tangible differentiation and value to offer customers”.

Data is becoming an integral part of companies’ planning, offering new insights and efficiencies. But to unlock the full potential of their data, businesses need to treat their data as part of their corporate infrastructure. Aptum’s Hybrid Cloud Manager helps enable data as infrastructure by allowing organizations to track and control their data anywhere in the cloud.

Aptum’s Hybrid Cloud Manager uses a comprehensive set of tools and APIs to give customers the insight they need to better control:

·Cloud migration assessments

·Cloud planning and application insights

·Cloud cost management and optimization

·Cloud security and governance

·Compliance requirements

·Cloud and multi-cloud configuration
