Q: What sets Cloudyn apart from other solutions in this space?
A: There are a number of other SaaS tools that offer cloud monitoring and optimization. Many of them, however, are limited to supporting only one or more public cloud providers and offer only baseline monitoring tools, while others provide an array of high-level optimization options, which can be sourced from open-source software.

Having this cloud platform support with drill-down capability enables Cloudyn customers to find the right mix of clouds for their needs and workloads and allows them to compare performance and price between clouds. In addition, Cloudyn’s solution delivers meaningful and actionable data, based on both operational and financial metrics. For example associating usage and cost metrics with business performance metrics.
Cloudyn is also unique in its offering for Managed Service Providers (MSPs), giving them a reliable and accurate tool for managing their cloud resources and profit margins, supporting hierarchical customer structures (Distributor→ Reseller→ End User) and custom pricing per customer.
