Corestack Overview

CoreStack empowers an organization to effectively and efficiently manage cloud governance and management operations, compliance, cost and consumption across multiple/ hybrid clouds. Cloud assets governed by CoreStack include public clouds, private clouds, virtualization platforms, IT operation tools, applications and subscriptions. The guard rails for governance is orchestrated through cloud native services based on governance configuration. CoreStack accelerates the adoption of new cloud services and helps automate entire cloud life cycle operations of various cloud services and its resources.

We believe that cloud governance cannot be an afterthought and should be baked into the entire IT lifecycle. With this in mind, we developed the 4Cs approach to cloud governance: Consumption, Costs, Cloud Observability and Compliance. Our 4Cs framework breaks down the data silos that often impacts enterprise governance. By bringing together all the data from the moment a cloud service is consumed to costs to monitoring to security, we ensure that multi-cloud complexity doesn’t impact enterprise governance, due to this many customers prefer the CoreStack platform for their governance needs.

Solving challenges of key stakeholders with CoreStack

The challenges faced by the key stakeholders and how the platform helps them are explained:

Stakeholder Challenges Faced, Need How CoreStack helps
Dev/QA TeamsLead time to get dev/test environments in Cloud through traditional help-desk mechanism. Agility offered by Cloud is lost.Self Service Portal with App/Service Catalog from multiple clouds to choose from. Instant provisioning & access.
IT Operations
Admins
1. Need to get trained on multiple clouds, tools being adopted.
2. Shadow IT causing lack of control over security & standards.
3. Difficulty in manually managing multiple platforms & tools.
1. Single pane of glass to manage all cloud platforms & tools.
2. Brokerage cloud services define standard & secure App/Service Catalog for consumption.
3. Template-based orchestration connecting all platforms/tools.
Finance1. Lack of pro-active control over public cloud spend.
2. Lack of visibility over private cloud usage cost.
3. Need for Dept/Team level control.
1. Policy-based orchestration to optimize usage & save cost.
2. Chargeback reports.
3. Dept/Team wise budget control for cloud spend.
