Cloud System Monitor Cloudyn Now Supporting Azure

Cloudyn users can deploy its tools over multiple types of clouds at the same time, and in real time.

Cloudyn cloud monitoring and optimization software now integrates with Microsoft’s Azure cloud.

Cloudyn’s software-as-a-service offers tools to govern and manage enterprise cloud usage. The four year-old Tel Aviv-based company is already a major player in the cloud optimization market. The addition of Azure opens it for use with an even wider range of hybrid clouds, including Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform and OpenStack.

Users can deploy its tools over multiple types of clouds at the same time, and in real time.

"Today we are monitoring around 10 percent of the Amazon and Google capacity worldwide," Sharon Wagner, co-founder and CEO, told eWEEK. "Azure is the last frontier in the public cloud for us, but not the private cloud."

Cloudyn's SaaS-based tools monitor cloud system usage, performance and cost, combining the information on a single screen for cloud administrators. Cloudyn also offers users customized prescriptive actions for enhancing performance and reducing cloud spend, Wagner said.

The company is now monitoring more than 12 million virtual instances for about 2,400 customers, Wagner said. Cloudyn keeps the aggregate metadata it collects on performance metrics on the same table, which gives Cloudyn the ability to perform cross-cloud performance and cost comparisons, she noted.

Cloudyn's user interface features data visualization that can be used and understood by line-of-business users; for example, users can drill down into operational cost analysis by entity, cost savings opportunities and trend analytics over time.

Cloudyn also is a consultant of sorts, helping businesses select the right mix of cloud vendors for their business model, in order to reduce cloud costs. The company supplies its services to Fortune 500 enterprises in several vertical industries, including aerospace, infrastructure, consumer online travel services, IT management consulting, and manufacturing.
