CloudZero Becomes a Databricks Partner, Provides Cloud Cost Optimization Adaptor

CloudZero, a globally trusted leader in proactive cloud cost efficiency, announced that the company is now a validated Databricks partner, making it one of the first and only cloud cost optimization platforms accepted into the Databricks partner program.

“As the only cost optimization platform with a validated Databricks integration, CloudZero is the clear partner of choice for organizations looking to map every penny of spend to business value and maximize their Databricks ROI,” said Bill Buckley, senior vice president of engineering at CloudZero. “We look forward to continuing to build this partnership to deliver additional cost-saving opportunities and FinOps expertise to ensure the health of our joint customers’ businesses.”

As part of the newly announced partnership, CloudZero developed a new in-platform Databricks cost adaptor that helps customers to visualize and explore 100% of their Databricks spend.

The partnership with Databricks will also give CloudZero customers an enhanced installation experience and new delivery model for those using the Databricks billing connection. This leads to a faster time to value and eliminates ongoing overhead and maintenance of integrating these two platforms, according to the companies.

Now, CloudZero customers can quickly and easily integrate with their Databricks Data Intelligence Platform in just a few minutes without having to set up or maintain any supporting infrastructure in their own environment.

Databricks’ Data Intelligence Platform is a foundational aspect of cloud strategy for more than 10,000 organizations. With CloudZero, Databricks customers now have a validated technology partner that can help them track, analyze, and report on their Databricks spend, according to CloudZero.

This integration will allow customers to save money, promote accountability with their internal teams, and maximize profitability to ensure that they are maximizing ROI from their Databricks investment, the companies said.

“We are looking for partners who have the right customer focus, integrity, and innovative bent—and we hold them to the same standards we hold ourselves to,” said Roger Murff, vice president of technology partner management at Databricks. “Having CloudZero in our partner ecosystem will help our joint customers become data-driven enterprises that can truly optimize their cloud costs.”
