Good reporting and ideal for small to medium-sized companies but needs better policy-based remediation

What is our primary use case?

We primarily sell the solution to our clients. We also have our own solution. We do cost reporting including budgets and budget alerts and unused services like SQL databases, ABMs, managed disk, Cosmos DB, service plan and usage, and the detailing of all of that.

Pros and Cons

  • "We don't actually use the Azure Cost Management features. We have our own capabilities. We put our own technology on top of Azure as Azure doesn't deliver a really good cost optimization, so our customers come to us to enhance what they're potentially doing inside their Azure platform."
  • "The policy-based remediation is probably the biggest area where Azure is lacking and that's why we sell a lot of our technology to our customers."

What other advice do I have?

We're a cloud management company. I run sales, so I am not using the solution to any great technical extent. We have a technical relationship with Azure. We're very integrated with Azure. Not just from a Cost Management perspective, but also from orchestrated Azure services. We're an extra service delivery platform. We actually hook into Azure, Alibaba, GCP, AWS, OpenStack, Nutanix, VMware. We're hooked into 27 different public cloud providers and private hypervisor solutions. The solution is a SaaS-based product. We run our own platform. We basically have a SaaS service. We connect into Azureā€¦

Good cost management, good reporting and easy to understand

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for our internal cloud or private cloud as well as for the external clouds. I also use it at home for my private cloud.

Pros and Cons

  • "The product provides excellent daily reports."
  • "The solution's private cloud is much too expensive."

What other advice do I have?

We're just customers. We aren't sellers or partners. I'm not sure of which version of the solution we are currently using. I'd advise other companies if they decide to implement the solution, to make sure they are using the right sizes. It would be nice if they changed their pricing model, but I don't think that is going to happen. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. It's very good.
