Challenge of Public Clouds
In order to maintain a cloudy environment, there are jumps of multiple console pages and use of multiple tools which make the IT operation team inefficient.
IT personnel use various public cloud resources according to business needs, causing wasted labor and prone to configuration errors.
The long waiting period leads to many users applying for resources using public cloud accounts which lacks security and compliance, makes the cost uncontrollable and brings the risk of “shadow IT”.
Many public cloud workloads run 7x24 without interruption or continue to run indefinitely after short-term testing and use, resulting in significant waste.
Public cloud expense has grown significantly, but it is difficult to clearly understand where costs are spent and lacks visibility into resource usage and costs.
SmartCMP supports unified management of multiple public clouds and can import inventory cloud resources in batches and automatically synchronize new resources created in the public cloud console, so that your management has no dead ends.
At the same time, SmartCMP provides centralized management of public cloud accounts, so that IT departments no longer need to distribute sub-accounts to different business departments, and all users can apply for resources on the SmartCMP platform. Through role-based permission management, the platform displays resources and operation that the user can access and performe based on the user's permission.
SmartCMP provides powerful resource abstraction and specification capabilities to help IT administrators configure and manage operating system images and instance types in a multi-cloud environment and publish standardized services through visual service orchestration. This let users use operating system images that meet IT department security and compliance requirements and standardize instances types used by enterprises, making full use of reserved Instance purchases and saving costs.
Self-service request, automated deployment delivery
After the user selects the required service through the service catalog and submits the request form, SmartCMP will automatically deploy and deliver the overall application environment required by the user, including computing, storage, network, database, message middleware and other resources.
Throughout the self-service process, users do not need to understand the configuration details of each cloud. The platform automatically selects the appropriate public cloud, region, image, configuration, etc. based on various policies, thus providing true cloud agnostic service capability
Policy-based automatic resource recycling
For different environments (e.g. development, testing, etc.), you can specify different consumer fields (e.g. different areas, availability zones, VPCs, etc.) and set different lifecycle policies to provide fully automated resource archiving and recycling process.
At the same time, the configuration of the timer switch allows you to save 60%~70% of the cost without having to pay extra for the resources which kept running all night.
SmartCMP provides resource usage quotas and budget management, allowing your business and organizations to apply for and use public cloud resources based on business needs.
The cost analysis and multi-form presentation of the public cloud help IT management understand the cloud costs from various dimensions, automatically divide the accounts according to the relevant rules of the enterprise, integrate the utilization and cost of the cloud resources, and propose optimization suggestions. Allowing you use the cloud more reasonably and maximize the return on IT investment.
