HPE to Add Cloud Management Service

HPE announced a definitive agreement to acquire Cloud Cruiser, a provider of cloud consumption analytics software that enables customers to manage and optimize public, private and hybrid cloud usage and spend.

Founded in 2010, Cloud Cruiser offers an IT infrastructure consumption analytics application that helps provide insight into IT usage and spend and helps customers plan and manage their IT systems. Cloud Cruiser is already a key component of HPE’s Flexible Capacity business. This acquisition marks additional investment in HPE Flexible Capacity. The service is intended to enable companies to manage IT infrastructure in their own data center but pay for it as-a-service.

Cloud Cruiser’s consumption analytics adds to this, enabling enterprises to measure, analyze, optimize and control their usage and spend in private, public and hybrid cloud environments.
