Easy To Share

Sharing cost analysis and spending reports in Cloudaware is easy. From scheduled email PDF or Excel reports to mobile notifications via Chatter, Cloudaware will deliver the reports to the users you want in whatever format necessary.

Blended and Unblended Rates

Cloud provider resellers and cloud service brokers depend on detailed billing files. These files are difficult to parse due to their complexity and size often requiring resellers, CSBs and large cloud provider consumers to invest heavily in building in-house applications just to process cloud provider invoices. Cloudaware not only supports "giant" billing files but also provides the advanced analytics, customization and invoicing based on the data derived from detailed billing files.

Waste Detection

Cloudaware automatically detects waste in your accounts. For example, if Cloudaware notices that an EBS drive has been unattached for over 10 days, Cost Management module will issue an alert indicating the amount of potential savings. There are over 100 waste seeking policies. Using Compliance Engine designer, users can customize policies to increase or decrease number of days a resource is considered idling before an alert is issued. User can also create new policies altogether. On average Cloudaware detects more than $40,000 in annual savings after observing an account for at least two weeks.
