The Cloud Cost Management Optimization Module

Cloud Cost Management (CCM) (formerly Optimize) is one of the modules in the Virtana SaaS platform for migrating and optimizing hybrid and multi-cloud environments. The CCM module in Virtana Platform helps you identify potential cost savings with your cloud service providers (CSPs), opportunities for optimizing resource usage, and CSP billing details for your environment.

The CCM module incorporates a Cost Saving Opportunities dashboard, a Bill Analysis dashboard, a Cost and Utilization dashboard, and an Overview dashboard. If you are a reseller or managed service provider (MSP), there is also a Customers dashboard.

The Bill Analysis dashboard allows you to view data across all of your cloud services. This dashboard shows all cloud services and provides reports for an overall view of your cloud costs across multiple cloud providers.

The Cost Saving dashboard provides insight into idle resources in your environment and provides reports with recommendations for right-sizing your compute instances.

The Cost vs Utilization (CvU) dashboard offers insight into resources that might be under- or over-utilized. CvU provides customizable reports so you can view data from various perspectives.

The Overview dashboard provides information about past, current, and trending cloud costs. You can compare current cost to what was spent in previous months. You can also see whether the current month's spend is trending higher or lower than the previous month.

For information about the Customers dashboard, see the Reseller and MSP Guide.
