Because the features and services offered by each cloud provider are constantly changing, it can be difficult to keep up. In this blog post we cover cloud storage with an in-depth look at object and block storage options from the leading public cloud providers. #AWS #GoogleCloud #Azure #SoftLayer

[BLOG] When calculating cloud costs, organizations often need to account for overhead costs (such as internal personnel costs, software license costs, and certification costs) that are not included on a cloud bill. In addition, users of public clouds may have additional negotiated discounts that are applied to the list price. For a true picture of your cloud costs, you need to consider all of these factors. This becomes particularly important when you want to achieve complete and accurate showback or chargeback across your enterprise.

RightScale Cloud Analytics, a solution for visualizing, forecasting, and optimizing costs across all your clouds and virtualized environments, provides a Markup and Markdown feature that allows you to apply these overhead costs or discounts on top of your cloud infrastructure costs.

Cloud Analytics now lets you incorporate your actual costs from any cloud or service. For example, you can add bills from cloud providers that #RightScale does not natively support, such as Oracle Cloud; you can plug in additional private cloud costs, such as storage, that go beyond hourly compute costs which are tracked natively by RightScale; or you can plug in costs from other SaaS or PaaS vendors.
The latest RightScale product updates include AWS Spot prices in the RightScale Cloud Pricing Service and more cloud costs available in Cloud Analytics.

[BLOG] Getting a full picture of cloud costs can be challenging. Most enterprises receive bills from several cloud infrastructure-as-a-service providers as well as SaaS providers. In addition, there are a variety of private cloud costs, software license costs, and internal overhead costs. Learn how you can aggregate and analyze all of your cloud costs in one place. #AWS #GoogleCloud #Azure #SoftLayer
Cloud costs can be easier to manage when you track all associated spend including SaaS costs, software licensing costs and more. Read blog to learn how.

[BLOG] If you’re taking a strategic approach to your cloud strategy, it's not as simple as choosing Cloud A and putting every workload in Cloud A. Instead, you need to consider the requirements for each application or workload and select the cloud that is the best fit. To make it easier, we’ve broken down the key differences among public cloud vendors as they pertain to storage, container services, and pricing. #AWS #Azure #GoogleCloud #SoftLayer

In this webinar we'll demonstrate how to use RightScale to:

• Adjust cloud bills to account for markups or discounts

• Implement budget alerts

• Avoid zombie instances and other waste

• Use pricing data to proactively save money
