We are extremely excited to announce the general availability of our support for Google Cloud Platform (GCP). This is a great achievement on multiple levels. During the beta process we received candid feedback from more than 70 customers, who have been very supportive during this phase and helped us streamline the feature set and deliver it to you. We have been working closely with the Google team and we can’t wait to show this to their customers. We are thrilled that we now support the three major cloud providers, Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services, and Microsoft Azure, through one single platform.

Brent Strong, Manager of Cloud Engineering and Operations at Change Healthcare said that “CloudHealth for Google Cloud Platform offers critical tools that allow us to manage assets and spend, while creating automation around those tasks. In addition, with CloudHealth, I am able to manage my cloud spend across multiple cloud platforms within the same console.”
Let’s focus now on our support for GCP. Working closely with our beta customers we heard that they needed support around resource visibility, resource optimization, and governance of the platform. With this latest announcement we are happy to deliver following benefits to the Google Cloud Platform users:
- Granular visibility for your resources. We give you detailed visibility into resource usage across all your Projects. In addition to understanding resource consumption, you can see the trending information to make data driven decisions and forecast in real time. You can further slice and dice the information based on any logical group that makes sense to your organization (e.g. by functions, users, business units, projects, etc).
- Control spend and drive more accountability. Understanding costs and bills on Google Cloud Platform can be both challenging and time consuming, especially if you want to look across hundreds of different projects. We help customers consume this complex information through simple reports and dashboards to identify root causes of spend increases and find opportunities to reduce cost.
- Simplified governance to help you scale efficiently. Through our support, we empower you to govern your Google Cloud Platform with policies. Our policies help set guardrails for your environment so that you get alerted when cost and usage is out of compliance. This helps you stay ahead of potential problems and fix them before they get out of control.
- A single platform to manage all your public clouds. With our platform, you gain visibility, better manage spend and govern all major public clouds like Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and VMware based clouds. Our cross cloud dashboards give you complete insight into your your multi-cloud environment. This way you see all your information in one place and not through multiple native tools from cloud providers.
