1. Cloud Analytics is a new product from RightScale that enables you to visualize, forecast, and optimize costs across your entire cloud portfolio. The end result for your enterprise: lower cloud costs and more accurate cloud budgets.

    Using cloud analytics we show how you can:
    • Analyze your instance usage and costs across all major public and private clouds.
    • View costs by department, application, and user.
    • Plan for future growth by using historical consumption to run what-if scenarios for accurate forecasting.
    • Take action on the results of your analysis through RightScale Cloud Management to eliminate waste, leverage reserved instances, and implement budget controls.

    This includes a live demo of Cloud Analytics and demonstrating how to visualize, analyze, forecast, and optimize cloud usage.

    This webinar is perfect for those who are struggling with cloud cost management and planning, including technical, business and finance managers, and for those who need to calculate the right amount of Reserved Instances to buy.
