Get All the Benefits of Multi-Cloud—and Then Some—In a Fraction of the Time
If you’re thinking of adopting a multi-cloud setup, you’re not alone. Gartner predicts that over 75% of midsize and large organizations will go multi-cloud by 2021.1 Businesses want cloud providers that meet their needs and propel them towards their goals, and going multi-cloud means leveraging the unique strengths that each cloud provider brings. For example, Google Cloud has some of the best big data services, which may be why it’s the fastest-growing major cloud vendor in 2020.2
But setting up a new cloud environment has its challenges, and adding a new cloud provider to an existing cloud setup is even more complex. How will you make sure you don’t blow your cloud budget? And how can you run reports and enforce rules across your multi-cloud setup without doing double or triple the work?
That’s where Kion comes in.
Kion is a cloud governance solution that provides a single touchpoint to view and control your spending across multiple cloud providers. Kion installs in your back-end environment (so we never have your cloud login credentials), and it lets you govern AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud accounts from one secure location. This allows you to seamlessly run reports spanning multiple cloud providers in one intuitive interface, which saves you time. And if you’re already using Kion, you can pull in your Google Cloud accounts to integrate them without missing a beat.
Plus, you’ll go beyond the built-in Google Cloud functionality for added visibility and governance capabilities with spend plans, enforcements, a detailed org chart, and more. So you’ll get the strengths of all your cloud providers—plus the added features of Kion—while saving serious time in the cloud.
Our out-of-the-box Google Cloud support includes:
Create spend plans to match your real-life plans. We let you apply your budgets at the project level, where you can attach all your accounts (Your Data Modernization project uses Google Cloud, AWS and Azure? Attach them all!). This mean you’ll get a clear, cloud-agnostic view of how much money is left to spend and the flexibility to allocate funds where you need them.
