Cloud Management Suite

Cloud Management Suite Overview

What is a Cloud Management Suite?

A Cloud Management Suite is focused on providing information about cloud computing systems. These tools provide a degree of administrative control over public, private and hybrid clouds. Cloud management tools have become increasingly important as IT tries to balance security, compliance and budgetary concerns with the business innovation brought about by self-service provisioning of so-called shadow IT.

Cloud Management Suite Features & Capabilities

  • Support for different cloud types, such as public, private and hybrid clouds

  • Support for creation and provisioning of new objects and the removal of unnecessary objects, like servers, storage, and/or apps.

  • Reports on uptime, response time, latency etc. with a drill-down dashboard

Advantages of Cloud Management Suites

One of the big advantages of cloud management tools is that they provide self-service capabilities to users who wish to access a public or private cloud, review available cloud instances, or create new ones.

Pricing Information

Many cloud management platforms (CMP) price by taking a percentage of spend or charge you a variable per-VM fee. Some other vendors charge a per-year flat-fee pricing based only on your public cloud spend. SMB systems typically cost between $1,000 and $5,000 / year, and there are also some open-source systems available. Enterprise systems start in the region of $25,000 / year and can scale to $100,000 or more depending on number of VMs.
