Create transparency about cloud resources with the cloud CMDB

The cloud CMDB is the central point of contact for information about cloud resources. It is created by reading all resource data via the cloud providers' web interfaces. This gives you an inventory of your booked IaaS and PaaS cloud resources. In addition, cloud resources are allocated to your business services, service components and cost centers. The service structure is generated automatically based on the read-in data.

Cloud cost management uncovers optimization potentials

Cost control only works efficiently if budget plans are transferred directly to a central cloud cost management system. The USU Hybrid Cloud Management Tool makes this possible. It gives you consolidated ACTUAL/PLANNED analyses for your cloud resources and their associated business services.

Get a comprehensive view as a cloud cost manager with the fiscal year forecast. By integrating it with your ERP system, you can automate cloud cost billing. It also shows whether cloud resources remain unused even though they are active and incur costs. So, you can not only monitor your cloud costs, but also optimize them.

Cloud license management provides a compliance overview

Cloud license management gives you a transparent overview of installed and utilized software in your hybrid IT infrastructure. With the integrated compliance check, you know immediately whether you are under- or over-licensed. In this way, USU Hybrid Cloud Management Software can help you reduce not only your costs, but also your risks regarding possible compliance violations.

License management also identifies your installed software by software type and cloud provider. To identify possible cost savings, installations with availability and use of BYOL licenses are displayed. With the help of cloud license management, you can identify your potential savings and avoid unnecessary costs.
