Organizations across the world have recognized the intense value promised by disruptive cloud technologies. This has exacerbated the already rapid expansion in cloud adoption that has simultaneously led to increasingly complex company infrastructures that breed inefficiencies. For Managed Service Providers (MSPs) providing their service to a number of clients with differing requirements, it has become exceedingly difficult to avoid succumbing to cost escalation. As a result, Cloud optimization and resource management software have become increasingly essential for businesses looking to streamline their operations and maximize cost efficiency.

In a transformative move for the industry of cloud optimization, Pax8, the eminent cloud commerce marketplace, has announced its collaboration with Kalibr8, a leading provider of a multi-tenant cloud management platform. The partnership aims to empower MSPs with an array of tools to improve operations, eliminate inefficiencies, and enhance security and compliance in the cloud.

Kalibr8's pioneering platform, equipped with advanced analytics and actionable features, enables partners on the Pax8 Marketplace to revolutionize their approach to cloud computing. Through precise optimization of cloud usage and spending patterns, identification of underutilized resources, and seamless adjustments such as downscaling and decommissioning resources, Kalibr8 effectively improves every facet of cloud operations. Coupled with the platform's automated scheduling feature, Kalibr8 ensures that organizations pay only for what they need, reducing costs and improving operational efficiency.

Nikki Meyer, Pax8 Corporate Vice President of Vendor Global Alliance, emphasized the crucial role provided by Kalibr8 in providing cloud optimization and cost management in today's digital landscape. She expressed her enthusiasm in welcoming Kalibr8 to the Pax8 Marketplace, underscoring the unique offering poised to empower partners to enhance their customers' cloud operations and eliminate unnecessary expenses.

Notably tailored for MSPs, Kalibr8's platform boasts multi-tenant capabilities, detailed billing and reporting features, alongside automated cloud exploration tools, making it easy for partners to identify optimization opportunities for their customers. Beyond optimizing efficiency, the platform also prioritizes security and compliance in the cloud, incorporating observability and alerting features to prevent fraud and potential hijacking of resources. 

These features, coupled with their powerful optimization platform, have enabled Kalibr8 to deliver significant monthly savings of up to 65 percent to their partners, with the expectation that new innovations could drive this further.

With access to the Pax8 marketplace, Kalibr8 expects to bring its dramatic cost optimization capabilities to a host of new partners. 

Ben McGahon, Founder and CEO of Kalibr8, highlighted the transformative impact of the Pax8 Marketplace on MSPs, simplifying operations and dramatically improving margins. McGahon underscored the pride in making their cloud optimization automation software available to the vast network of MSPs served by Pax8, making cloud resource management and margin maximization effortless.
