A platform for management, operations, and service delivery, the CloudHealth Partner Platform provides a centralized console to simplify customer management and streamline billing to deliver value added services.

It provides the ability to isolate customer usage and cost for internal reporting needs and set unique pricing, while giving branded access to the platform as a value-added service to customers. Partners are able to improve efficiency, monetize their public cloud business, and increase margins.
