Cloud management software provider CloudHealth have entered into an alliance with Softcat to reduce the spend on the cloud by up to 30%. With this alliance, Softcat will be integrating their Cloud Intelligence Service into Cloudhealth’s software to draw insights related to cloud usage, storage and spends.
Softcat say that most enterprises deploying public cloud services end up integrating more resources than required, which in turn adds to the total spend on cloud apps. They say that this consumer behaviour ends up affecting the performance of the applications since the integrations consume a lot of power.
By partnering with CloudHealth, Softcat claim that they will be able to reduce the spends on wasteful cloud resources by up to 30%. They say that this will be made possible by drawing insights from Softcat’s Cloud Intelligence Service that will be integrated into CloudHealth’s software.
According to Softcat, the Intelligence Service provides users with everything that one needs to know about the usage at different levels. They also say that this level of detailing will allow enterprises to prioritize the most important cloud applications and discard the ones that are not directly relevant.
This approach, Softcat believe, will help enterprises get a return for investing into the right cloud applications.
Colin Brown, Managing Director at Softcat says that enterprises face myriad challenges with respect to the cloud and this partnership will help them reduce cloud spends by a huge number. He says that the team at Softcat are excited with this alliance and are looking forward towards joining CloudHealth.
Bob Kilbride, Channel Director at CloudHealth says that their technology merged with Softcat’s will help customers allocate funds to better resources like security, IoT, AI and ML. It will be interesting to see how Softcat and CloudHealth make the most of this deal and help enterprises reduce spends on the cloud, following the launch of ‘Tim’ by Taloflow.
