Controlling Cloud Costs
When deploying applications to the cloud, it's easy to over-allocate cloud resources such as storage, CPU capacity and availability zones. Getting visibility into actual cost consumption for applications or cloud providers is difficult. And without visibility, you cannot enforce cost constraint policies.
Manage cloud resource usage with ElasticBox
ElasticBox helps you control and manage resource allocation for applications across different cloud providers. It gives you real-time visibility into cost consumption for multiple applications and providers, all from a single dashboard.
With this insight, you can make smart decisions about cloud platforms and define policies for applications deployed through ElasticBox:
- Track and report on resource allocation across different cloud providers from a single dashboard.
- Define and enforce policies for resource cost constraints and usage. For example, limit development projects to smaller instances.
- Move applications between providers quickly when pricing changes.
- Automatically scale back allocated resources when possible (such as after a seasonal peak has passed).
Using policies, Application instances conform to resource rules.
