Cloud Cruiser Announces Integrated Chargeback And Billing For Windows Server 2012 And System Center 2012 SP1





LAS VEGAS, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Cloud Cruiser, the pioneer in Cloud Cost Management and a Microsoft System Center Alliance Partner, announced today at Microsoft Management Summit 2013 the availability of new solutions that enable Microsoft hosters and enterprise customers to implement chargeback and billing with Windows Server 2012, System Center 2012 SP1, and Windows Azure.

Cloud Cruiser's integration with Microsoft System Center 2012 SP1 and Windows Azure Services for Windows Server enables enterprises and hosting service providers to gain greater cost efficiencies by delivering holistic cost visibility, cost analytics, chargeback, and billing across Microsoft hybrid cloud environments. 

"Microsoft's Cloud OS vision gives customers groundbreaking technology to deploy cloud infrastructure using Windows Server 2012 and System Center 2012 SP1. The ability to deploy on-premises, in a hosted cloud, and in Windows Azure is driving maximum agility for the datacenter," states Brian Hillger, Director, Server and Tools Marketing for Microsoft. "By adding Cloud Cruiser to the Cloud OS mix, customers and hosters can add to the cost savings inherent in hybrid cloud computing."

The addition of Windows Azure Services support further extends Cloud Cruiser's already successful System Center 2012 integration.  From enterprises implementing private clouds to hosters deploying large-scale, multitenant websites and IaaS offerings, Cloud Cruiser's turnkey cost management solution enables customers to immediately gain visibility into and control of IT usage and spending in their multi-tenant cloud environments.

"The more self-service that public and private computing resources become, the more critical is the need for rich cost transparency and financial accountability," says Nick van der Zweep, VP of Products for Cloud Cruiser.  "When customers spin up services across a diverse computing environment, costs can rocket out of control quickly, and both enterprises and hosters need an automated means of controlling and charging for them.  Cloud Cruiser is the only cost management solution in the industry that is specifically architected for the type of agile hybrid cloud environments that Microsoft enables." 

Cloud Cruiser also announced the expansion of their partner network with Sequoia Worldwide and Infront Consulting Group.  Sequoia Worldwide is an authorized Cloud Cruiser services delivery partner and will be incorporating Cloud Cruiser's cost management into their cloud consulting and implementation services.

"We architect private and public clouds for clients every day," said Steve Hanney, Founder and Managing Partner for Sequoia Worldwide.  "Now with Cloud Cruiser, we can ensure that our cloud deployments have the best ROI in the industry."

Infront is an authorized reseller of Cloud Cruiser products and services, specialized in large enterprise implementations of Microsoft System Center technologies.
