Cloud Cruiser for Amazon Web Services

Cloud Cruiser provides an out-of-the-box integration to AWS, enabling enterprises to track all of their Amazon public cloud spending and map it back to the business unit, department, project, or user consuming those resources. With Amazon resources so easy to procure, it’s critical that enterprises centrally manage their public and private cloud usage to ensure that IT spending stays under control. As well, it's important that IT gain clear visibility into cloud usage in order to make the most cost effective decisions around purchasing and managing Reserved Instances (RIs).

For most large enterprises, AWS is just a portion of their overall computing spend. Cloud Cruiser adds enormous value because it is designed from the ground up for heterogeneous computing environments and can automate the collection, pricing, and chargeback of costs from AWS and any other public or private cloud platform. You can eliminate hours spent pouring over spreadsheets and gain automatic cost transparency and chargeback in minutes by having a single holistic view to all your costs from one place.
