Enstratius offers the complete enterprise cloud management solution, providing cloud governance, automation and independence for enterprises. Enstratius provides support for Eucalyptus and all leading public clouds. The Enstratius Basic Cloud Management plan comes standard with each Eucalyptus subscription, allowing users to enjoy powerful capabilities at no charge.

Enstratius Cloud Management Features

  • Self-provisioning – end-users can quickly launch and deploy, eliminating wait time and IT backlog
  • Key Management and Encryption – Enstratius, running outside the cloud, is the guardian of your security keys and credentials, but has no access to your data. Your cloud provider has your encrypted data, but not the encryption keys.
  • User Management – limit access for internal or external teams to specific resources within one or more clouds
  • Role-based security – easily allocate specific levels of access to development, QA and other teams
  • Financial controls – track and limit spending by project code, customer or department
  • API Integration – leverage your internal management systems by integrating with the Enstratius REST-based API
