CloudHealth Technologies Enables Businesses to Unleash the Full Potential of ContainersNovember 15, 2017
CloudHealth Technologies today announced the CloudHealth Container Governance Module, the industry’s first ever container governance offering, enabling customers to unleash the full business potential of containers without sacrificing governance or visibility.
Container adoption is skyrocketing. Gartner predicts more than 50 percent of enterprises will be running containers in production by the year 2020.1 Hand in hand with containerized deployments is the move toward serverless and functions-as-a-service, with adoption of offerings like AWS Lambda climbing rapidly. Yet a containerized, serverless world, for all its speed and flexibility, also presents significant challenges — such as loss of visibility. In the shifting sands of this "black box" environment, enterprises struggle to determine which services and apps are consuming resources and driving cost, and to understand consumption and utilization.
"Running a containerized environment helps us maintain our incredibly high standard of agility of feature velocity," said Ben Chess, Director of Engineering, Yelp. "At the same time, transparency is a must, so we can measure resource consumption and allocate costs appropriately across our hybrid environment. CloudHealth lets us maximize the value of our container deployment by telling us how well utilized it is and whether our clusters have the right mix of supporting resources. That insight is pivotal: It enables us to make informed, strategic business decisions without additional overhead."
Today, customers using Kubernetes- and Mesos-based orchestrators to manage their containerized environments can take advantage of the CloudHealth Container Governance Module, which provides a variety of business benefits, including:
- Unparalleled Visibility: Reveals what services are consuming the most resources;
- Resource Optimization: Pinpoints opportunities for ongoing optimization, so businesses can ensure they have the right infrastructure resources to support their cluster; and
- Cost Control: Delivers insights on resource utilization waste to better control spend.
CloudHealth Technologies is also planning support for AWS ECS and Lambda for Usage and Cost allocation, with visibility, cost allocation, and management for ECS clusters and Lambda Functions. AWS ECS has seen significant adoption among many leading companies, including Nextdoor, Prezi and Expedia.
"CloudHealth customers are rapidly adopting containers as a catalyst for new application architectures and deployments in always available environments," said Joe Kinsella, CTO and Founder, CloudHealth Technologies. "This improves scaling, delivers better efficiency, reduces operations, provides greater agility and improves platform independence. Adopting containers changes how customers deploy and operate their workloads. In this new environment, it’s critical that they know how to optimize and deliver ROI. The CloudHealth Container Governance Module seamlessly integrates with our cloud console, providing a single pane of glass for managing all your applications and infrastructure, regardless of technology."
CloudHealth supports containers in all cloud and data center environments running on Kubernetes- and Mesos-based orchestrators including RedHat OpenShift, Mesosphere DC/OS, CoreOS Tectonic, Azure Kubernetes Service, Google Kubernetes Service, and more.
