| Can you see how well your hybrid cloud is performing?
One of the major benefits of a multi cloud environment is the flexibility to scale up or down depending on requirements. However, an all too common story is that without a cloud management platform (CMP), organisations simply don’t have the visibility to see when a workload is over provisioned or if you’re paying for public cloud compute that’s not required.
As a ‘Multi Cloud Management Platform’ Illapa gives you that visibility to see how your hybrid cloud is performing. This then allows you to easily manage your hybrid cloud more effectively, seeing what’s running where, where spare capacity is, and where more resources are required.

How can illapa improve the governance of my hybrid cloud?
- Scale up or down with ease. Illapa monitors your entire hybrid estate, letting you know if your soon to be over provisioned on a workload or if you’re paying for a workload that’s not required
- Use the inbuilt, customisable illapa library to ensure consistent build and deployment. As well as many out of the box configurations you can present custom templates to help control and manage what get built and deployed in which cloud.
- By having such granular access, you can control which clouds are presented to deploy particular workloads, ensuring the right cloud is used for the right application

What else does illapa do?
With many organisations adopting a multi-cloud strategy, keeping on top of your public cloud spend can be a tricky task. Illapa solves this issue by giving you greater visibility of the “true” cost of workloads. Illapa allows you to easily see what you are paying and how those workloads could be more cost effective, across both public and private cloud providers.
With cloud services so easy to consume, governance becomes a big issue for many organisations. Shadow or stealth IT has become an issue because services are so easily accessed from outside the corporate IT strategy. Illapa’s very granular role-based access policy, allows you to determine what users can and can’t do, and then who authorisation access is delegated to. This allows everyone who needs to be able to build servers the access to do this, but in the corporate boundaries and therefore less likely to use a credit card.
With the fragmented nature of a multi-cloud strategy, if you can’t see the data, then you have no control over it. Illapa allows you to see all your public and private clouds through one single pane of glass. The real benefit of this greater level of visibility is actually how it can help you to reduce your hybrid spend, enables more control and governance and ensures delivery of application performance.
