We want to provide visibility for people who have gone to public cloud for their core infrastructure, as well as a path for optimisation from a client perspective.
While we have seen lots of businesses migrate from 'tin' to the cloud, we believe that the next iteration of cost savings will come with visibility, security and a best practice approach, says The Instillery CEO Mike Jenkins, on the business driver behind the New Zealand company's launch of Clearstate.
Jenkins says the Clearstate app was developed over the past 10 months, from insights the company gathered from more than 500 public cloud migrations it has done.
“We want to provide visibility for people who have gone to public cloud for their core infrastructure, as well as a path for optimisation from a client perspective,” he explains.
“We want to be the one or single source of truth regarding cloud in your enterprise,” he tells CIO New Zealand.
Jenkins and four other members of the Auckland-based startup are at re:Invent, the largest gathering of the Amazon Web Services Community, being held this week in Las Vegas.
The Clearstate app is designed to provide cloud administrators, engineers and developers with knowledge and power to optimise their cloud systems for best performance in diverse, complex production environments.
“We see it as a single pane of glass to view and optimise all your AWS cloud deployments, [live and historical data] by monitoring and automating day-to-day cloud administration and management operations.
“Having worked alongside a host of organisations over the past three years who have been on a similar trajectory with their ICT provisioning, we have taken our IP and lessons learnt from Clearstate Consulting and automated our thinking to extend our reach on a global scale.”
Jenkins says whether you manage a small or large cloud environment for your organisation, or are simply experimenting for research or development purposes, the app will provide the critical visibility and control needed to improve cloud operations.
The Clearstate app will be publicly available next year at the AWS Marketplace. 'This will give us that scale market.”
He says the company has 24 full-time staff across the three countries.
