James Bond is a unique individual – he’s shrewd, intelligent, gathers intelligence exceedingly well and approaches each scenario with supreme adaptive ability.

SkyLight, the cloud management platform that will give James Bond a run for his money

SkyLight shares these characteristics, so we can describe it as the James Bond of the cloud computing world. It remains relevant in an ever-changing world and adapts to your unique IT business needs.

And it’s as unique as James Bond because it’s the first-of-its-kind aggregated cloud management solution. You can have your martini shaken or stirred and still have full control and visibility into your cloud management. SkyLight gives users access to multiple cloud providers such as Internet Solutions Cloud, Amazon EC2, Dimension Data Cloud and Microsoft Azure, all delivered through a single interface.

Welcome to your SkyLight briefing

So what makes SkyLight the 007 of the IT world? SkyLight is about selecting the right platform for your workload to optimise performance by migrating workloads to constructs that better align with their technical specifications or platforms that meet your current financial requirements. This cloud management platform makes the process of workload migration more fluid by removing the barriers between services across four of the most popular cloud providers around the world.

Mission: Eliminate Shadow IT

Irrespective of the size of your enterprise, SkyLight’s consolidated, user-centric view of your workloads stops Shadow IT in its tracks and puts the ball back in your court. Now you’ll be able to free yourself from managing physical assets like servers and data centres in favour of deploying multiple workloads in multiple locations.

The innovative single interface – something that no other cloud provider offers – will also allow the user to benchmark individual platform performance metrics, pricing options and security inclusions against one another and maintain proper levels of IT governance. This greater visibility goes hand in hand with greater autonomy to manage more with less

Obtain the asset

SkyLight is a value-added service. Working on this cloud management platform means that you will only pay for the services you use, and tailor your spend to fit your consumption model by eliminating money spent on idle resources. There is no long-term contract lock-ins when you use SkyLight, so you’ll have the flexibility to scale up or down as your operating expenses and business requirements fluctuate.

You can even create thresholds (or caps) according to what you can afford monthly. This will be monitored by intelligent algorithms that will notify you when your usage approaches the pre-assigned threshold before the end of the month.
