The Business Perspective
Cloud governance is a critical challenge for enterprises. Dell Cloud Manager enables you to govern your clouds by leveraging your existing IT policies and procedures.
The Enterprise Cloud Governance Solution
As you extend your public and private cloud deployments, cloud governance is becoming a larger issue. Cloud governance is essential for enterprises to maintain control over increasingly complex and integrated systems, services and human resources environments.
Dell Cloud Manager helps you meet your cloud governance needs with a unified management solution that leverages your internal management systems.
These are some of the governance issues that Dell Cloud Manager resolves:
Access Controls – Limit access for internal or external teams to specific resources within one or more clouds. Our flexible role-based security allows you to allocate specific levels of access to development, QA and other teams. Integrate into your LDAP/AD deployment to extend your internal policies into your clouds.
Financial Controls – Track and limit spending by project code, customer or department. Each time a new resource is provisioned across your clouds, Dell Cloud Manager will track the cost and limit the spending, per your specific budget requirements.
Key Management and Encryption - Our patent-pending security architecture enforces a separation of roles. Dell Cloud Manager, running outside the cloud, is the guardian of your security keys and credentials, but has no access to your data. Your cloud provider has your encrypted data, but not the encryption keys.
Logging and Auditing – Dell Cloud Manager logs all activity across your clouds. Track activity by user through reports or by integrating monitoring and management systems.
API Integration – Leverage your internal management systems by integrating with the Dell Cloud Manager REST-based API.
With the right governance solution in place, you limit your risk while reaping the benefits of incorporating cloud computing across your organization.
