Azure Cost Management by Cloudyn empowers organizations to monitor cloud spend, drive organizational accountability, and optimize cloud efficiency so they can accelerate future cloud investments with confidence.
Microsoft’s acquisition of Cloudyn will help Azure customers and partners as they face the challenges of growing their multi-cloud environments. It will enable them to gain visibility, understand and optimize cloud consumption, as well as accurately project future usage.
Microsoft will continue to support multi-cloud environments, including Azure, AWS, and GCP. Azure Cost Management by Cloudyn is available for free to customers and partners managing Azure spend. Additional premium capabilities are available at no cost through June 2018, once they will become paid features.
