The Instillery inks partnership deal with Cloudability

For Immediate Release
November 8, 2016


The Instillery Group has today confirmed a world-first partnership with Cloudability, the global leader in data-driven Cloud Cost Management as it looks to further strengthen its own Clearstate Consulting and cloud managed service practice.

The terms of the deal will see The Instillery become the Elite Exclusive Cloudability partner for the New Zealand and Pacific Islands region allowing Kiwi and Pacific organisations to realise unprecedented advantages, including reduced cost of delivery, enhanced business agility and increased reliability on core platforms.

The Instillery CEO, Mike Jenkins says that in New Zealand and across the Pacific Islands there has been growing adoption of public cloud – a trend that is only accelerating as we approach 2017.

“Public Cloud is no longer reserved for research experiments or ‘born in the cloud’ SaaS providers. In fact, in our experience public cloud strategies are now well entrenched in big business across the region.”

“Enterprise organisations are now delivering production infrastructure exclusively in the public cloud to support mission critical applications, as evidenced by recent public announcements from the likes of Xero, Qantas, Atlantis Healthcare and GE to name a few” says Jenkins.

Managing a complex enterprise IT structure in the public cloud may sound challenging, but Jenkins has some advice for keeping things running smoothly.

Visibility is key he says, “With visibility and real time insights you can control your own destiny and avoid any potential bill shock.”

“The Instillery’s partnership with Cloudability will enable organisations who have adopted public cloud strategies to visualise all of their cloud spending in one place. Cost and cloud usage data is aggregated from multiple platforms including both Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, improving cloud spend efficiency, eliminating unexpected overages and providing an enterprise-wide view of costs.”

“With Cloudability we can provide our customers with much more granular cost and utilisation visibility than ever before. We can enable an authorised business or application owner to securely log into Cloudability, click on the name of an any app, and see exactly how much it is costing to run in AWS, how much resource it was using and best of all the potential actions available to reduce the predicted future costs. A great example of this is by leveraging the Reserved Instance Planner to find opportunities to save on your usage.”

Cloudability Co-Founder and Chief Customer Officer, J.R. Storment, says the company is thrilled to be working with The Instillery and is looking forward to seeing what can be achieved across the region.

"Cloudability is thrilled to be working with The Instillery as an Elite Preferred Certified Consulting Partner for the NZ and Pacific Island region. Together, we'll be positioned to help companies grow their cloud use more quickly and confidently with the latest in Cloud Cost Management tools and processes."
