There are many businesses that use cloud-based applications as an effective way to optimize IT costs, by leveraging their pay-as-you-go model. Today, cloud-based platforms are used to manage multiple departmental needs such as project management, data sharing, notification systems, and collaboration. Nowadays many industries use a number of industry-specific needs such as analytics, big-data processing, reporting, and data interchange in sectors such as Telecom, Banking, Automotive, and e-commerce. A robust Cloud Management Platform (CMP) gives them the ability to handle a complex and fast-changing cloud-based environment.
A Cloud Management Platform (CMP) is software which includes combines a set of features or modules which enable the management of different cloud environments. As Public, private and hybrid cloud cannot be all handled with a simple virtualization management console, hence CMP is the best solution for it.
CMP is a cloud management platform that provides management of cloud computing products and services across multiple cloud infrastructures, including both public and private and hybrid cloud environments. CMP platform offers self-service interfaces, provision system images, enable metering and billing, and workload optimization through established policies.

OpenStack – Cloud Management Platform:
There are many organizations that choose OpenStack for the next step in their cloud journey. Red Hat “OpenStack” Platform is a cloud computing platform that virtualizes resources from industry-standard, organizes those resources into clouds, and manages them so users can easily access what they need and when they need it. This journey of transformation is marked by three main evolutive stages:
Many of the Compute, Storage, and networking and industry leaders have contributed code to OpenStack to enable their devices to work properly when called on by OpenStack. So, this makes it easier to provision a virtual server, associate some storage to that server, set up some networks and security configurations, regardless of the underlying, vendor-specific infrastructure.
Nowadays, Users are becoming more concerned about their data and online privacy. We can see the Cloud Management platform to satisfy both the parties with many tasks to be done simultaneously on larger projects and limited attention span and this is a very handy tool to establish priority and stay on top of what’s going on. Unlike users are given complete freedom to handle their data through CMP and as per analysis, 90% of the consumers gave consent to advertising purpose.
So, it’s important to emphasize that the Cloud Management Platform is best for cloud applications.
Businesses and organizations are moving their workload to the cloud for better agility, performance, and security. Cloud computing is the bellwether of hosting applications and databases to improve the overall efficiency of business processes. The disparity between the on-premise workload and cloud environment workload often results in businesses migrating the workload to the cloud. Cloud technology shows impeccable growth contributing to the adoption of cloud-based computing across many businesses and organizations.
Centaurus, a next-generation cloud for the telecom sector, is an open-source project for building cloud infrastructure platform that can be used to build and manage public or private clouds, edge computing, and edge device datacenter. It is a solution to address key challenges of large-scale clouds such as system scalability, resource efficiency, multi-tenancy, edge computing, and the native support for the fast-growing modern workloads such as containers and serverless functions. Centaurus helps in creating multiple nodes, managing infrastructure, containerizing the environment, managing the pods, and many more.
Cloud computing is picking up the pace replacing the traditional methods of storing the data, accessing, and running the applications. Cloud migration is the process to shift the existing data, applications, and other business elements from data centers or one cloud to other cloud environments for better scaling. Organizations are shifting their businesses on cloud for more speed and agility. Migration to cloud gives the organization limitless computing resources.
Click2Cloud support enterprises throughout their cloud infrastructure deployment process and empowers them with private cloud offerings, a cloud framework for compute, storage, and network services. To get the benefit of hybrid cloud and Edge computing an enterprise can accelerate the use of OpenStack, Apsara Stack, and Azure Stack services to transform technologies into cloud and deep industry growth to deliver abiding value.
This blog will give you a complete understanding on billing, budget, and cloud cost optimization. Cloud cost management is as important as knowing your bills. It is important to know your cloud spends and which cloud offers you a good service at minimal costs. Click2Cloud also offers you a semi-automated assessment platform “ CloudsIntel” to support you with assessment and migration plan
