Whose traffic is hitting a VM and why?
Why did a new service release or update blow up the cloud bill?

Our Innovative Technology
Seamless on-boarding meets insightful analytics and powerful customization
CloudNous brings SaaS monitoring and optimisation to the next level through innovative solutions and cutting edge technology for:
automating data ingestion
connecting customer traffic with cloud infrastructure costs
customising the technology to meet each operator's own architecture and requirements
Intelligence, Simplicity, Clarity
How does it work?
It seems impossible but in just three simple steps CloudNous can ingest data and adapt to the intricacies of even the most complex cloud-based SaaS architecture. Here's how:
Provide the authentication token
1. Connect your Cloud
Whether you are using Google's StackDriver or Amazon's CloudWatch, our easy to use wizard will support you in providing the right authentication token so that we can connect to your cloud provider and ingest your usage statistics in real time.
2. Connect your end users
Copy and paste CloudNous' tracking snippet to each one of the web-pages that give access to your SaaS services. This way CloudNous can count in real time the number of active users from each one of your customers at each one of your services.
Use our advanced tagging features
3. Tell us about your architecture
CloudNous uses a state-of-the-art tagging system that allows operators to easily and quickly define arbitrary groups of customers, services, and resources. Map Customer and Service groups to Resource groups to model your internal architecture or let CloudNous infer it.
CloudNous Competitive Advantage
More insights, less administration
Competing systems allow a SaaS operator to split its cloud bill among different internal divisions and business units. They don't, however, provide any insights on how this bill came to being. This is a consequence of the fact that they totally lack information about the end user traffic that hits the service.
CloudNous is the only cloud optimisation system that, in addition to cloud-level information, also knows about end user traffic. By connecting application-level with cloud-level traffic, CloudNous can tell a SaaS operator how much each one of its customers and services contributes to its total cloud bill.
What can you do with CloudNous?
Have a bird's eye view of costs
Spot your cloud-cost heavy-hitters
Voila! For the first time available for your consideration a breakdown of your cloud bill. A complete picture of which customers and services are responsible for the VM, storage, bandwidth, or any other billable resource that your cloud provider charges you for. See actual dollar values with or without discounts.
Zoom in to individual cloud resources
"Cost debug" your VMs and other cloud resources
At the opposite side of knowing the total cost of a customer or service you may also want to understand usage and costs of a particular resource. Drill all the way down to a single billable resource to see its workload and a breakdown of its cost among customers and services.
Mix and Match based on your business
Perform specialized analysis for your own architecture
Not all SaaS architectures are the same. In some systems all VMs can serve all customer requests. In others, different services run on different VMs. Some architectures are monolithic, others follow a Service oriented Architecture (SoA) based on micro services. CloudNous can be completely agnostic about your architecture or can take high level hints by an operator to further refine its cost breakdown.
