A Signal for your Cloud Spend
In the ever-changing cloud usage scenarios, it becomes highly difficult to keep track of the cloud usage and monitor the associated budgets, at an organization level and at individual resource level. Manual monitoring becomes tedious after a while when it involves a huge Enterprise system. Questions Organizations need to ask continuously are:
- Do we have Cloud usage policy that can be applied automatically and receive budget alerts, any time of the day?
- Can the budget alert be deducted and notification sent without manual intervention?
- Will having an automated budget alert result in best cloud optimization strategy and control cloud spend?
Budget Alerts are email notifications the user receives on a pre-defined cloud usage, set by the organization.
Unlimited budget alerts can be created and configured to suit individual VM’s cloud usage.
A sample budget alert (Bell Icon) for a VM is shown below.
