Microsoft completes acquisition of cloud investment advisor Cloudyn

Microsoft has completed the acquisition of Cloudyn, a company that helps enterprises and managed service providers make the most of their cloud investments.

While companies grow their cloud operations, there is a danger they may lose sight of their existing projects, and struggle to optimise these investments and project future usage.

According to Jeremy Winter, director of program management, Azure Security and Operations Management: “It is critical that customers have access to enterprise-grade management capabilities for detailed visibility into their Azure consumption, cost and performance in order to stay within budget and ensure business success.”

The acquisition of Cloudyn will allow Microsoft to empower its customers with the tools they require to govern their cloud adoption and realise the strategic benefits the cloud can bring.

Cloudyn’s tool set will enable customers to identify, measure and analyse consumption. They will also have a better sense of accountability and future cloud spending. 

Thanks to automated monitoring, analytics and cost allocation, Cloudyn is able to support customers and enable them to optimise their cloud services.

“When we started this journey, our goal was to build a great company, attract the best and brightest talent and provide the best business management solution for all clouds,” said Sharon Wagner, the founder and CEO of Cloudyn. “We have strived to help our customers be their company’s cloud heroes, and hope we have succeeded.”

“We’re excited to bring the Cloudyn team and their technology to Microsoft,” said Winter. “I look forward to seeing the impact their contributions will have on continuing to help our customers and partners accelerate their digital transformation with Azure.”
