These days most enterprise organizations deploy more than one kind of cloud, whether public, private or hybrid, and different company divisions, office locations or even projects can be working with multiple cloud providers. Many also are starting to implement containerization and other advanced cloud technologies. All of this has made the cloud landscape as muddled as with traditional hardware deployments.
DivvyCloud was created to provide protection and management to all cloud deployments, regardless of the type of cloud, the technology or the vendor. It works by enforcing policy rules as cloud assets are first spun up, and then continuously monitors them to make sure they don’t drift out of compliance at any point over their entire lifecycle.
The main DivvyCloud platform is deployed on premises, in a local cloud or even as part of an infrastructure that an organization buys from a provider like Amazon Web Services (AWS). Regardless of where it is deployed, it’s completely platform agnostic, able to work with almost any cloud vendor or even technology. DivvyCloud even works both in containerized and normal cloud environments. Currently, the platform can help to manage and protect 125 different cloud services. Pricing is an annual fee based on the number of instances that are monitored by the platform.
Once installed, all of an organization’s cloud instances can be displayed in the main DivvyCloud dashboard. Policies can be enforced onto existing infrastructure, though the true value of the platform is in making sure that cloud assets are configured securely from the start.
