Accelerating the cloud economy: HPE announces plan to acquire Cloud Cruiser

WhitneyGarcia

Earlier this week, HPE announced it will acquire Cloud Cruiser, a leading provider of cloud consumption analytics software that enables customers to manage and optimize public, private and hybrid cloud usage and spend.

Founded in 2010, Cloud Cruiser offers an IT infrastructure, consumption and analytics application that provides clear insight into IT usaCloud Cruise and HPE.JPGge and spending. These insights help customers more effectively plan and manage their IT systems. Already a key component of HPE Flexible Capacity, Cloud Cruiser solutions will add additional investment in HPE Flexible Capacity and further differentiate and strengthen this high growth service.

HPE Flexible Capacity offers customers on-premises IT infrastructure with cloud economics. It enables customers to manage IT infrastructure in their own data center but pay for it as-a-service. This functionally reduces the risk of organizations investing too much or too little in IT, eliminates unused capacity, and frees up valuable IT resources for new value-adding projects.

A critical piece of HPE Flexible Capacity is measurement – the ability to accurately meter and bill for customers’ consumption of IT. That’s where Cloud Cruiser comes in, as HPE currently licenses Cloud Cruiser’s solutions in their Flexible Capacity offering and, is in fact, their largest customer. Cloud Cruiser’s consumption analytics enable enterprises to measure, analyze, optimize and control their usage and spending in private, public and hybrid cloud environments.

“Together, HPE and Cloud Cruiser will transform IT organizations, providing the HPE Flexible Capacity solutions to help IT organizations spend less time on day-to-day operations and more time on innovation,” said Scott Weller, SVP of Technology Services Support, HPE.

More details on the acquisition can be found in this article, HPE to Acquire Cloud Cruiser to Bolster Consumption-Based IT for Customers.
