With RightCloud AWS Managed Services business growing at an exponential rate and becoming increasingly complex, RightCloud needed a new multi-tenanted AWS Resource and Cost optimization tool to automate cost analytics and streamline reporting for its customers.
RightCloud automates AWS reporting and cost optimisation across multiple customer accounts.
RightCloud recoginised that to more effectively scale its large and rapidly growing AWS Managed Service business they needed a solution that would lower their operational overhead, automate AWS cost optimisation and expand their multi-tenanted reporting capabilities.
After a successful PoC with Kumolus, RightCloud has executed a seamless and uninterupted rollout of Kumolus across its significant customer base with hundreds of thousand of AWS services under management. Instant benefit was realised by RightCloud with hundreds of 1000s in cost savings identified across multiple customers, highly configurable reporting was automated and headcount was drastically reduced.
“With a few clicks we now have multi-tenanted visibility of our service costs, scheduling systems, budget awareness and automated delivery of customised reports for all our customers”
