Multi-Cloud Billing and Invoicing with CloudCheckr

MSPs and CSPs and resellers often have a tough enough time generating invoices for their customers. Add to that the demands of a multi-cloud environment, with AWS, Azure, Google Cloud and more, and it becomes extremely challenging to allocate billing and invoicing.

The solution is automation. CloudCheckr can automatically generate invoices and even help resellers profit by keeping discounts and credits allocated among clients, presenting list price, as well as custom charges and credits as desired.

In this webinar, attendees will learn how to turn billing and invoicing from a nuisance to a profit center.

  • Clean Up Your Public Cloud → How to Avoid Cloud Sprawl Nov 8 2018 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager, Ethan Simmons, Managing Partner at Pinnacle Technology Partners
    Welcome to CloudCheckr Partner Webinars—where comprehensive cloud management meets a managed service provider to help you recognize the full potential of cloud infrastructure as a service.

    Modern enterprises are embracing the cloud primarily as a way to save money. But just as “Server Sprawl” was a problem with data centers, Cloud Sprawl can quickly become a concern. Without Cloud Cost Management, running a constantly growing and evolving set of public cloud services in a dynamic environment can easily get out of hand In an ephemeral environment, resources can easily become under-utilized or wasted—negating any potential cost savings in the cloud.

    To further complicate the cost of the cloud, instances can be purchased at different rates, depending on how and when they are used. When left to individuals across different departments, teams, and business units, purchase decisions are less than optimal.

    Your organization needs to stay safe as you grow—which is why a comprehensive cloud platform should unify cost and security management. In this webinar featuring Pinnacle Technology Partners, attendees will learn about the risks involved with poor visibility and lack of control in AWS and Microsoft Azure, RI Purchasing and Right-sizing Recommendations, and why AWS and Azure perform better with Cloud Management tools.

  • Cloud Security Management 301: Total Compliance Recorded: Sep 18 2018 15 mins
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager
    Welcome to Cloud Security Management 301!

    Major cloud providers use different methods when it comes to protecting your resources. AWS utilizes security groups and NACLs, Microsoft Azure uses Network Security Groups on interfaces and subnets, and Google uses Firewalls. While each of these vendors have technology that protects your resources, none of them have built-in mechanisms that offer a comprehensive, holistic, security story. A third-party tool that can understand each of these methods, ensure all of your resources are protected, and conform to your security needs, is crucial when managing workloads across multiple clouds.

    This 301 course builds on your foundational knowledge of cloud security management and teaches you about the risks of noncompliance in the cloud, along with the benefits of comprehensive compliance features in a cloud management provider. Our experts will also demonstrate the value of automated capabilities that save time and effort while managing larger workloads.

  • How to Grow Microsoft Azure Usage While Shrinking Cloud Costs Recorded: Sep 6 2018 48 mins
    Aaron Gettings, Technical Product Manager - Azure, CloudCheckr
    In terms of saving money, pay-as-you-go pricing for cloud computing is an appealing alternative to traditional IT infrastructure costs. But it comes with risk. Many cloud users end up wasting valuable resources by purchasing more cloud capacity than they need or buying Microsoft Azure Reserved Instances they'll never use. Businesses looking to grow their use of Microsoft Cloud may quickly find that Azure services alone are not enough to support the cloud consumption of a profitable managed service provider (MSP) or large enterprise.

    That's where the concept of cloud management comes into play. Adding a cloud management platform (CMP) vendor has the net effect of reducing cloud spend with cost optimization tools like Right-Sizing Recommendations, Fix-Now capabilities, and utilization alerts. To find out how cost optimization is crucial to cloud management register for this webinar featuring Microsoft Azure expert Aaron Gettings of CloudCheckr.

    You'll learn about Microsoft Azure’s strengths and challenges, how to save your organization time, money, and other valuable resources and how to shrink your growing cloud costs in Azure using CloudCheckr cloud management.

  • Cloud Security Management 101: Cloud Security Best Practices Recorded: Sep 4 2018 26 mins
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager
    Welcome to Cloud Security Management 101!

    Since the early days of cloud computing, security has remained a major obstacle in the transformation from on-premises IT infrastructure to a cloud-first approach. Organizations may find themselves questioning how storing data or running applications on infrastructure they do not manage, could possibly be secure. On top of existing concerns, leading cloud providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure offer a seemingly infinite number of configuration options to tailor your deployment around your specific needs, which in turn makes it easier to overlook security loopholes.

    That’s where Best Practice Checks come in. Cloud management platforms take a detailed look at your deployment to ensure your infrastructure is configured properly, and highlight areas where you may be vulnerable.

    In this 101 course, you will learn where your organization fits into the Shared Responsibility Model, explore Cloud Best Practices, as well as learn how to leverage Best Practice Checks on top of AWS and Microsoft Cloud offerings.

  • Your Organization's Role in the Shared Responsibility Model Recorded: Aug 16 2018 29 mins
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager
    A Guide to Understanding and Taking Control

    There is no doubt managing massive amounts of enterprise data is inherently easier in the public cloud. However, given its size, that data is a target for malicious security threats from attackers both within and outside organizations. While leading cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure can help ease the burden of cloud migration, they are not responsible for the comprehensive security and compliance checks necessary to keep your data safe in the cloud. That’s why next-generation automated cloud monitoring and security management tools like CloudCheckr are essential for closing the loop.

    In this webinar, Product Marketing Manager Todd Bernhard maps out shared responsibility models for AWS and Azure and explains how CloudCheckr keeps your data secure and compliant.
