Cloud Cruiser for VMware vSphere

VMware vSphere is a virtualization platform that's a key component in many enterprise cloud deployments. vSphere virtualizes physical hardware resources across multiple systems to provide pools of virtual resources to the datacenter. By separating the applications and operating systems from the underlying hardware, this helps you use your resources more efficiently and reduce your overall IT costs.

Cloud Cruiser offers a robust financial management solution specifically architected for VMware vSphere. Our solution tracks all vSphere activity and provides full financial management including showback, chargeback, and multi-tenant billing. We leverage the vSphere APIs to pull in macro and granular details such as CPU, memory, and storage to accommodate any level of financial management desired. This means that for enterprises and service providers operating in a heterogeneous computing environment, Cloud Cruiser provides a single financial management platform for all your IT costs and revenue, whether or not you operate a VMware-only datacenter or a multi-vendor mix of public, private, and traditional IT computing platforms.

With Cloud Cruiser for vSphere, you can:

  • Gain freedom of choice with a single financial management platform for both VMware and non-VMware computing environments
  • Achieve holistic IT cost transparency of both your computing and operational costs
  • Deliver cloud financial intelligence with user-friendly dashboard-to-drilldown reporting capabilities
