Accelerating the Move to Multi Cloud with Oracle and CloudHealth

Jeff Shuey
Principal Product Manager, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

As organizations embrace moving to the cloud and its myriad benefits, they’re encountering new challenges around multicloud deployments. Challenges include lack of centralized management and the need for simpler methods to track cloud spending and to proactively monitor, detect, and remediate risks. Modern enterprises often have a mix of public clouds, hybrid cloud, and on-premises infrastructure and services. So, creating a single view of the entire cloud ecosystem is a cumbersome and manual effort. Customers have asked for a single-pane of glass to view resource utilization across cloud platforms and with on-premises systems.

It’s with these challenges in mind that we’re thrilled to partner with CloudHealth, who have recently added support for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) deployments. Through CloudHealth, the key challenges of managing a multicloud environment are addressed, including poor visibility into costs, usage across cloud environments, and difficulty optimizing spending. They’re empowering organizations with intuitive tools to monitor and control their cloud spending through a single pane of glass.

Key benefits to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure customers

CloudHealth provides cost management, automation, optimization, and governance of multicloud environments with a span of control across the enterprise. This exciting partnership enables Oracle Cloud customers to view 13 months of OCI cost history, enabling them to identify trends and forecast future spending. Using OCI tags and CloudHealth’s Perspectives capability, CloudHealth can also group OCI assets by business unit, department, cost center, owner, and more for cost reporting and showback.

With this release, organizations can now include OCI in their multicloud resource management and use the following key features:

  • Dashboard views: Many users have been asking for single-pane-of-glass functionality. With the CloudHealth dashboard, they now have added visibility into Oracle Cloud cost information. Customers can also build their own custom dashboards for OCI, based on their specific needs.

  • Compute shape usage report: The ability to capture more granular reporting based on the compute shape resources is also available.

  • Perspectives: Using CloudHealth Perspectives, customer can use tags to track specific OCI resources for operational monitoring and business-oriented groups simultaneously.

  • Budget versus actual spend reports: The ability to enter and track budgetary plans is critical to validate cloud resource utilization.

  • Asset inventory: Asset inventory provides visibility into OCI compartments, a comprehensive list of assets (as derived from billing data), and deeper, API-driven reporting on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure virtual machine instances.

  • Cost history report: Oracle Cloud cost history is included in the CloudHealth cost history report, enabling customers to view 13 months of OCI cost history to identify trends and forecast future spending.
