In a cloud services market insight report released on January 13, 2014, 451 Research highlighted Ostrato’s cloudSM™ cloud orchestration platform. Analyst William Fellows rated key features and market impact in his report, “Ostrato Rolls Up Cloud Service Management onto a Single Platform.”

Ostrato cloudSM simplifies and automates vital processes associated with managing, governing and provisioning cloud services across complex hybrid cloud environments. The single, unified platform combines an easy-to-use online marketplace for users with enterprise-level scalability, security and automated workflow support.

"Ostrato's agentless cloudSM (service management) offers a single pane of glass for governance and integration, operational management and cloud analytics,” said William Fellows, Analyst with 451 Research. "It provides visibility across cloud services – private, public and hybrid – multi-layered financial tracking, a view of application services costs (via a marketplace) and customer usage data.”

With cloudSM, organizations can:

  •     Speed adoption of cloud environments and simplify provisioning for users.
  •     Establish IT governance over the cloud by providing a centralized and unified platform to govern, manage and report on usage of all cloud services.
  •     Maximize the value from their private, public and hybrid cloud deployments through a safe, secure and streamlined service portal that provides a barrier between on-premise systems and services from 3rd party and providers.
  •     Gain knowledge of and control cloud computing costs with reporting and real-time visibility into enterprise cloud usage.
  •     Mitigate security and vendor lock-in risks with tools that automate interoperability and data portability processes.

“cloudSM™ is a powerful cloud orchestration solution which provides companies with the management tools and framework needed to rapidly deploy new cloud services and also manage or ingest existing ones to benefit their business,” said Jay Chapel, CEO of Ostrato. “The system provides visibility into cloud expenses by project, user, department, and cloud service provider, and it offers IT and financial managers the ability to measure and control cloud costs.”
