IT environments today are highly mixed – with multiple virtualization platforms as well as multiple public cloud deployments such as AWS, IBM SoftLayer, Rackspace, vCloud Air, Google Compute Engine and others. While it has become easier to move workloads between platforms and clouds, the cost impact of moving workloads is unknown, leading to unexpected charges, or worse, un-noticed waste of IT resources.

Akasia CloudView is a targeted next-generation cost management solution that brings unprecedented cost visibility into the dollar value of running a workload in various cloud environments and recommends remediation steps for cost savings.

Akasia’s founders have deep expertise in cloud and enterprise, with experience from VMware, Sun Microsystems, CommVault and Unisys. Akasia is based out of Santa Clara, CA, and is funded by TiE LaunchPad.
