What makes cloudthread unique ?

We’re not just another rightsizing / instance-type-changing / governance cloud management tool. We’re designed for accountability across all cloud stakeholders, not just infrastructure. This is primarily facilitated because:
1) We incorporate application performance monitoring (APM) data into the infrastructure analysis framework which allows for unit cost measurements of cloud activity (e.g. cost per request, cost per query), empowering engineering managers to understand and react to specific cost drivers of their applications.
2) We're designed to incorporate into the product development process, with forecasting tools for engineering managers to create budgets up front and then tools to keep all stakeholders accountable.

Who at my organization would use cloudthread ?

Anybody involved in product development and infrastructure would benefit from the visibility Cloudthread provides. We've created out-of-the-box dashboards for Infrastructure, Engineering, Product Managers, and Finance, but customers can tailor dashboards to fit the needs and roles at their organization.

Can i split shared resource cost to multiple applications ?

Yes, we look at your APM data to automatically allocate shared resource costs to the application inline with relative contribution to using the resource.
In absence of APM data, users can define shared resource cost allocation.

How does the 30 day free trial work?

You get to use the full version of the Cloudthread platform and you get our commitment to work with you to validate whether it’s a good fit. At the end you can decide whether or not to keep Cloudthread and pay month to month with the ability to cancel at any time.

Does Cloudthread modify resources or impact my applications?

No. We add a unique tag to your resources in order to gather resource-level costs but don't have access to spinning up/down resources.

Will my data be private and safe?

Yes. We abide by the highest security standards both when it comes to storing your data and when it comes to ensuring that your users aren’t vulnerable to social engineering attacks.

How does Cloudthread maintain the continuity of our service, specifically with regard to uptime and disaster protection?

We have a comprehensive disaster recovery plan that would maintain service to our customers seamlessly. Our infrastructure is designed inline with the AWS Well Architected Framework.

Where does Cloudthread pull data from?

Cost data is pulled from your cloud computing provider (e.g. AWS). Infrastructure data (e.g. CPU utilization, storage capacity) is pulled from your infrastructure monitoring solution (e.g. Cloudwatch). Application performance monitoring (APM) data is pulled from your APM solution (e.g. New Relic).

What is APM data?

Application Performance Monitoring data. The speed and stability data unique to your application, things like number of requests/queries and duration of requests/queries.

What AWS access requirements does Cloudthread need?

Only the ability to add tags to resources. We don’t need the ability to modify your cloud resources.

I don’t have don’t have an APM tool set up, can I still use Cloudthread?

Absolutely. The presence of APM data allows automated per-application cost visibility and unit costs in terms of the APM data but you can still benefit from cost and infrastructure dashboards and our solutions for stakeholder alignment.

I don’t use AWS, can I still use Cloudthread?

At this exact moment no, but we’re constantly expanding our integrations and would be happy to hear from you so we can prioritize accordingly.

How does Cloudthread decide our monthly rate?

We look at the size and complexity of your cloud infrastructure, we can give you a rate after our first meeting.

Do I have to sign a long term contract?

No. You can sign up and pay month to month.

Do I need to enter my credit card info to sign up?

No. You can start a free trial and test our platform without entering and billing information.

Are there any setup fees?

No. We’ll provide hands on support to get you started but there won’t be any setup fees.

What is your cancellation policy?

You can cancel your account at any time with no penalty.
