Cloud Cruiser provides economical, cloud-based financial management and operational solutions to benefit IT and financial pros. Now, Cloud Cruiser is available with Windows Server 2012 R2 via the Windows Azure Pack.
It includes chargebacks, cloud billing, financial management, hosters using cloud solutions via Windows Azure, multi-tenant cloud billing, and showbacks. It also provides cost controls, service pricing, and standard reports.
In addition, it lets businesses figure out how to automate cloud billing and chargebacks and can also show if businesses are making money over expenses. In addition to these benefits, it can show which customers are providing the most revenue and predict the business’s future demand for services.
“With Windows Azure Pack, enterprises and hosters gain the powerful capabilities of the Windows Azure public cloud in their datacenter or a hosted cloud,” Ryan O’Hara, director of Program Management, Microsoft (News - Alert) Cloud and Enterprise Division, said. “Cloud Cruiser’s financial management solution gives customers insight into the transformative economics of Microsoft’s cloud technologies. With Microsoft and Cloud Cruiser, customers can make real-time strategic business decisions that can drive greater efficiency and profitability.”
In addition, an added plus is the completeness of Cloud Cruiser Express. It comes as a comprehensive solution – and is easy to use. It also leads to profitability, the company says.
“With cost information directly available within the Windows Azure portal, our customers have the financial insight they need to make their business even more profitable in the cloud,” Brad Anderson, corporate vice president, Windows Server & System Center, said in a recent statement.“This solution is also a no-cost, low-friction entry point for IT pros looking for financial management tools. Cloud Cruiser Express installs automatically within Windows Azure Pack in less than 10 minutes, and the product provides two complementary portal experiences for customers (one for Windows Azure portal and the other for Cloud Cruiser).”
So the cloud – thanks to Cloud Cruiser and Microsoft – provides a lot to businesses to ensure profitability and efficiency.
