Dell Cloud Manager acts as a single point of control for implementation of governance policies and controls, unifying the management of all your accounts across all your clouds. Business users and developers get fast provisioning of VMs and applications, while IT gains the ability to track and control usage and spending – plus, you have the freedom to choose the clouds and tools that best meet your own unique business needs.
Cloud Manager provides agility, governance, and choice for your enterprise.
Agility – Cloud Manager helps you meet the economic and operational advantages of cloud computing and improve service levels through a variety of capabilities including self-service provisioning, access to a service catalog of pre-approved application stacks, integration with configuration management solutions like Chef/Puppet, and more. Plus, you can leverage the Cloud Manager API to integrate additional automation tools and other backend systems, for consistency across all cloud platforms.
Governance – Maintaining control over your systems is crucial to reducing risk. Cloud Manager’s fine-grained access controls and ability to integrate with directory services enable you to provide only the right people the right level of access to your cloud environment. Our built-in financial controls ensure that cloud usage and spending can be monitored, capped, and charged back to the appropriate department, group, or client. And Cloud Manager creates a log of all API activity, which can be used in the event of an audit.
Choice – With support for the leading public and private cloud platforms, plus access to leading configuration management tools, Cloud Manager offers your organization a unified management solution for your single or multi-cloud environment. This provides increased efficiency and allows you the freedom to choose the cloud services that work best for your organization.
