Welcome

Welcome to the NET+ CloudCheckr Premium wiki.

CloudCheckr has been brought forward by Boston University, Case Western Reserve University, Carnegie Mellon University, Penn State University, and University of Wisconsin-Madison to begin the NET+ Service Evaluation process. CloudCheckr is a comprehensive cloud management service that helps manage and automate cost and security for public cloud environments. 

The NET+ CloudCheckr Premium offering, through DLT, will be available for AWS and Azure, with Google Cloud Platform expected in the near future. This offering will include total visibility for cloud spending across the three most highly adopted cloud infrastructure providers across higher education. The offering will include delegation of access to individual account owners on a campus, access to APIs to automate billing reports, and provide visibility to the security posture of a campus’ cloud footprint.
