The value proposition for delivering self-service cloud infrastructure and cost transparency to the enterprise is huge, but it can pose new challenges for both IT and their business partners. Often, the hardest challenge is trying to figure out how to maximize value from a cloud strategy, while controlling costs.
As you might expect, just as their cloud program begins taking off, many of our enterprise customers start to worry about having visibility to the cost and utilization of their rapidly growing cloud ecosystem.
Turbot Guardrails dashboard shows you and your users the total AWS cost on an account by account basis to help your application teams optimize their usage and utilization; however, there is even more that an enterprise cloud team can do to cost optimize their environment. So much in fact, that the cloud team can be consumed in tweaking and tuning to the nth degree, or worse end up feeling overwhelmed by the deluge of information and options available to them, and do nothing.
Turbot has worked with many of our customers on addressing this challenge. Today, we are happy to announce a new partnership between CloudCheckr and Turbot Guardrails to address these concerns and add significant value for our joint customers. This integration with CloudCheckr will give your teams additional tools to save money, track your spending, and optimize your AWS cloud resources.
Together, Turbot and CloudCheckr, work seamlessly to protect, automate and synchronize these capabilities with Turbot Guardrails hierarchical user and multi-account model.
