CloudHealth by VMware is a cloud management platform that allows users to analyze and manage cloud cost, usage, security, and governance. The platform lets users leverage dynamic multi-cloud reports and custom dashboards, monitor increases in cloud spending, customize security policies across business units and maintain control through custom policies and workflows. CloudHealth also grants insights into visibility and optimization for Kubernetes, Mesos, and Amazon ECS container environments.

In addition to enhanced public cloud provisioning support for Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud, VMware is introducing a number of new multi-cloud capabilities. The new version will feature tighter integration with vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager and enhancements to the vRealize Automation Migration Assistant tool. Customers can now also enable VMware Cloud on AWS customers to activate vRealize Automation Cloud with a single click.

In the company’s press release, VMware’s senior vice president and general manager, Cloud Management, Purnima Padmanabhan stated: “Enterprises are adopting a multi-cloud approach for choice and flexibility but face the challenge of deploying, managing, and better securing their apps across clouds. VMware makes this complexity of managing clouds invisible.
