Do you have or want to have a modern, agile, perhaps self-service, cloud infrastructure?
Are you struggling with or considering how many disparate workloads are deployed?
How will you gain useful insight into who's using which resources, and how do you appropriately charge users, departments, the customers of IT, for the resources they consume?
Even in a flat or no charge back model, the ability to analyse and, more importantly, predict consumption, is vital to managing and growing any sort of modern IT infrastructure.
With the rapid implementation and usage growth of modern clouds, it is vital that proper environmental analytics are gathered. Join Canonical and Talligent to learn how to measure and analyse business-critical consumption and cost data from a single to multi or hybrid cloud infrastructure. We'll discuss cloud computing in the context of BootStack, a managed OpenStack offering based on Ubuntu. Talligent's OpenBook software demonstrates how and why to perform cloud measurement, billing and potentially charge back.
