Building and Managing the Hybrid Cloud Model
- Build, manage, and govern your entire cloud ecosystem while retaining control of your IT environment, and send non-mission-critical workloads to the public cloud to take advantage of its flexibility and scalability.
- Accelerate and improve service delivery with solutions that deploy and manage workloads across all cloud models.
- Manage multiple cloud providers from a single console.
- Manage budgets across multiple providers and users who access images running in multiple clouds.
- Govern and secure hybrid cloud usage across the enterprise, including industry regulatory and organizational requirements.
- Jamcracker technology allows IT organizations to automate multi-cloud lifecycle management, governance, and delivery. With the Jamcracker solution, IT can provide and broker services throughout the organization.
- Achieve greater flexibility and choice for enterprise IT when deploying and managing a multi-cloud environment, by using self-service capabilities and governance to avoid vendor lock-in.
- Automate multi-cloud services management and delivery.

Jamcracker solutions use integrated identity information to create, modify, and retire identities and control user access via identity management, access management, single sign-on, access governance, identity tracking, and active directory administration.
Unified Billing for all Cloud Services
- Consolidate your cloud spend with a single point of billing. Optimize cloud setup with unified cloud resource usage, metering, and billing, which works seamlessly across single and hybrid cloud deployments.
- Empower IT users to compare, order, manage, access, and consolidate billing across cloud services, including Amazon Web Services and Rackspace, along with providers based on OpenStack, VMware and other technology stacks.
