Introducing MontyCloud

Cloud is a powerful and complex appliance

At MontyCloud, we have come to appreciate the cloud as both a powerful and a complex appliance. Cloud services include a multitude of individual services, building blocks and settings. Modern applications can be rapidly built on top of the popular cloud providers such as AWS, Azure, GCP and others. Customers expect their cloud to behave like an appliance so they can focus on building higher value applications and services. However, due to the complexities involved in managing the appliance, time to value is often impacted. It is not uncommon to see cost overruns and security compromises, along with delayed delivery of critical goals. Amidst shrinking budgets and reduced timelines to transform, traditional IT teams are looking to evolve faster to deliver CloudOps that is crucial for success in the cloud era.

Our future is rapidly being built by cloud powered applications

From deriving insights navigating massive amounts of data, to correlating interdependent events and making decisions, to powering mission critical business outcomes, cloud applications are helping us build a better future. A portfolio of Windows and Linux Server-based applications, serverless applications, and Kubernetes powered containerized applications are now part of the IT reality. IT teams are faced with operational challenges in the areas of visibility, consistency, compliance, cost and security. Lack of time, modern tooling and knowledge gaps are impeding cloud consumption and innovation.

Migrating to the cloud is just DAY1

Digital transformations often make for some difficult challenges. As customers rapidly adopt the cloud, managing their cloud footprint poses a big challenge. Post migration, remaining agile and yet secure, while consistently delivering operations & granular governance in a cost-efficient manner requires a high degree of expertise.

MontyCloud’s mission is to empower IT teams to become cloud powerhouses

Over the past two decades, as the cloud took shape, I have had the privilege to work with established enterprises, born in the cloud enterprises and startups. Through my tenure at Microsoft Azure, Commvault Inc, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) I have learnt that IT teams that embrace operational excellence and automation have a higher chance of delivering success. As public cloud transformation works its way through DAY1, customers are grappling with traditional network, storage, compute and database silos being compounded with silos created by cloud account, region and service boundaries. The need for compliance, governance, cost related responsiveness manifest in different forms. The tools customers are using on-premises don’t adapt well. While cloud vendors provide rich API interfaces, it takes specialized CloudOps talent (and a variety of third party tooling) to operate well-managed applications. Customers are looking for help with consuming the cloud the right way so they can unlock business value faster.

Announcing MontyCloud DAY2™ – an intelligent Cloud Management Platform

MontyCloud DAY2™ (DAY2™) is an intelligent multi-cloud management SaaS platform for modern enterprise applications.
