ScienceLogic Launches MapMyCloud AWS Cloud Monitoring Platform
MapMyCloud is a web-based platform that runs within the AWS cloud as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) and provides “a simple and elegant way to visualize the full extent of [an enterprise’s] AWS reliance and its impact on the entire IT infrastructure,” according to ScienceLogic.
“Many enterprises are now already in the public cloud, yet they have none or little visibility into their [cloud] resources,” a ScienceLogic spokesperson told Talkin’ Cloud. “Today, it is hard for organizations to see what they have in the cloud, what is being used and what is wasting money, as they spin off resources and don’t shut them down. We wanted the world to know that there is an easier way — that you can visually see your clouds and make decisions fast to solve problems, save money and improve business uptime.”
MapMy Cloud features the following:
- Intelligent mapping capabilities
- Relationship management support
- Reporting history
“For enterprises, they can instantly and for the first time see their public clouds like never before,” a ScienceLogic spokesperson added. “For example, they can visually see a resource, such as a server floating by itself and not connecting to anything — meaning that this resource is an orphaned system that needs to be shut down — [and] save money.”
MapMyCloud helps enterprises visually understand their IT infrastructures
ScienceLogic noted MapMyCloud provides enterprises with “immediate visual understanding of public cloud infrastructure and supports a better plan for the future while avoiding pitfalls and unnecessary spending.”
The Reston, Virginia-based cloud and IT management software company added MapMyCloud could help enterprises better manage their cloud resources, which is crucial due to the rising demand for public cloud services like AWS.
International Data Corp (IDC) earlier this year pointed out that the public cloud services market’s revenue reached $45.7 billion last year. The research firm also predicted that this market would expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 23 percent through 2018.
