Cloudability Announces Support for Google Cloud Platform


Amid skyrocketing public cloud cost complexity, Cloudability's
machine learning and analytics delivers timely and accurate insights
into multi-cloud spend

a leading cloud cost management provider that enables businesses to
achieve financial and operational excellence with the cloud, today
announced it is now supporting Google Cloud Platform (GCP) on the
company's True Cost™ cloud management platform. Businesses and
enterprises using Cloudability now have full visibility into their GCP
spend, giving them even more power to fully visualize their costs,
manage budgets and drive cost savings. This offering is a result of
customers asking Cloudability to deliver a single, integrated and
normalized view for spend and utilization on the three major public
clouds - GCP, AWS and Azure, providing actionable cost insights to
organizations with multi-cloud environments.

"As an enterprise team focused on building reliable, effective products
on top of public clouds, it was imperative for the USA TODAY NETWORK to
have a technology partner that could help us manage costs and optimize
resources," said Franklin Hanson, Director of Platform Engineering at
USA TODAY NETWORK. "By leveraging Cloudability's public cloud expertise
and support for our Google Cloud environment, our team is able to focus
on the platform itself, while still maximizing the value of our public
cloud provider."

Cloud cost management is a continuous, iterative cycle which requires
processing millions of lines of billing files and petabytes of data,
which is not humanly possible. Cloudability's machine learning,
analytics-driven True Cost cloud management platform tracks 75 billion
data points, three billion CPU hours, and 700 million unique compute
resources, representing over $5 billion in public cloud spend. GCP's
infrastructure is engineered to handle enterprises' most data-intensive
workloads, giving them the flexibility to scale quickly while still
maintaining control. Gaining additional insight into optimizing value
and utilization on these workloads via Cloudability is another benefit
for all GCP users.

"We've seen a growing trend of enterprises embracing multi-cloud
environments for reasons ranging from seeking out best of breed
technologies, to a desire to remain cloud agnostic, to disaster recovery
preparedness," said Erik Onnen, CTO, Cloudability. "GCP's popularity is
growing, earning a Leader spot in Gartner's
2018 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service, Worldwide

for the first time. It made sense for us to bring GCP under our True
Cost umbrella and give our users the ability to run their multi-cloud
environment with flexibility, agility and full transparency into their
operational and billing models, freeing up time and resources for their
employees and business."

Cloudability's multi-cloud True Cost cloud management platform enables
visibility, optimization and governance for every VM, container and
serverless workload, application, department and user. Key features of
Cloudability's GCP support include:
