With, customers can manage the cost of public cloud services and match those services to required performance metrics, without having to constantly monitor and manually adjust their public IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) solutions. The industry’s first SLA-as-a-service offering, provides real-time access to visual tools and historic reporting of costs savings compared to unmanaged IaaS services. The solution also provides 24×7 access to adjust required performance parameters to tune automated behavior based on the company’s most important business applications.
