Unitrends, CloudCheckr to help MSPs manage AWS-hosted businesses

Unitrends and CloudCheckr have formed a joint partnership to help managed service providers (MSPs) build, manage and grow their AWS-hosted businesses, the companies said.

CloudCheckr is an online service that provides comprehensive AWS monitoring, evaluating up to 350 best practices in cloud workload configurations, costing, billing and security alignments.

The service alerts users to exposures or vulnerabilities, and provides actionable intelligence on response strategies. CloudCheckr gathers data from AWS services such as CloudWatch, CloudTrail and API, which MSPs can analyze to optimize costs, manage cost allocation and provide accurate reporting for AWS Cloud. CloudCheckr also provides in-depth security features, including alerts, audit trails and continuous infrastructure monitoring while cloud applications are in active use.

Unitrends Boomerang is a simple, intuitive and cost-effective virtual appliance for replicating VMware VMs to AWS for low-cost backup and disaster recovery. With Boomerang, AWS MSPs can provide differentiation and maintain margins with Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), migration, cloudbursting and billing for AWS infrastructures.
